bbc-synopsis-for-the-eaters-of-light

The BBC Media Centre has released the official synopsis for Episode 10 of Series 10, The Eaters of Light, which will air on Saturday 17th June.

The episode is written by Rona Munro – who wrote the 1989 Seventh Doctor serial Survival – and directed by Charles Palmer.

A long time ago, the ninth legion of the Roman army vanished into the mists of Scotland. Bill has a theory about what happened, and the Doctor has a time machine. But when they arrive in ancient Aberdeenshire, what they find is a far greater threat than any army. In a cairn, on a hillside, is a doorway leading to the end of the world…

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…

A 5,000 year-old Pyramid stands at the centre of a war zone, where the Chinese, Russian and American armies are about to clash. There are many problems with that, but the one that intrigues the Doctor is this: there wasn’t a pyramid there yesterday. The Doctor, Bill and Nardole face an alien invasion unlike any other, and before conquest can begin, these aliens need the consent of the human race…

Series 10 continued in spectacular style tonight as the second instalment of this year’s epic three-part adventure took our heroes to the end of the world itself…

They’ve been there before, of course, but definitely not like this. The Doomsday Clock was already a-tickin’ as our TARDIS Team unravelled the mystery of an ancient but brand new Pyramid, but it was what lay inside the tomb that had the potential to push the Doctor & Co – and the entire human race – to the brink of destruction. The Monks were back and they were ready to talk, as the truly Earth-shattering extent of their powers was revealed.

Meanwhile, Armageddon was nigh within the confines of a research laboratory (it’s always the last place you look…) and the consequences would have been catastrophic had it not been for Bill Pott’s final act of desperation. She has given her consent, but what did you think of The Pyramid at the End of the World? Are the modelling Monks a magnificent edition to the show’s menagerie of monsters, or were you left disappointed by the latest extra terrestrial escapade? Let us know by discussing tonight’s episode in the comments!
