whoviannets-10-exclusive-teasers-for-the-lie-of-the-land

Series 10 continues this weekend and nothing is as it seems as the human race finds itself gripped by a mass delusion in The Lie of the Land.

One thing you can depend on, though, is our 10 exclusive teasers for the episode in question, however we’ve also thrown a tiny little fib into the mix (naturally) for good measure. Just ’cause.

Now, do as you’re told and let us know what you make of the hints below. Which one do you think is the red herring?

  1. “The Monks have been with us from the beginning…”
  2. Daleks and Cybermen and Weeping Angels, oh my!
  3. The Doctor’s on fire. Literally. The ************ was a little too much, though…
  4. “You couldn’t even get on Celebrity Love Island.”
  5. Missy cries. Actual tears. And no, this isn’t the red herring. Or is it…?
  6. Bill punches Nardole. Twice. It was only a matter of time…
  7. Man, this really is the series of misdirection, isn’t it?
  8. Nardole loses another body part. Now he’s just getting careless…
  9. There’s a cool little ‘blink and you’ll miss it’ throwback to Series 2.
  10. Oh, Bill. We hardly knew ye. It probably isn’t worth her starting any long books…
