The BBC has issued a trailer for the third episode of Season 8 of Doctor Who, ahead of its first broadcast, in several countries, this coming weekend.
Set in Nottingham's Sherwood Forest, Robot Of Sherwood, which is written by Mark Gatiss, sees Da Vinci's Demons star Tom Riley take on the role of Robin Hood.
Other cast members include Peter Capaldi as the Doctor, Joseph Kennedy as Will Scarlett and Jenna Coleman as an ersatz Maid Marian (a.k.a. the Doctor's erstwhile companion, Clara Oswald).
In a sun-dappled Sherwood forest, the Doctor discovers an evil plan from beyond the stars and strikes up an unlikely alliance with Robin Hood.
With all of Nottingham at stake, the Doctor must decide who is real and who is fake. Can impossible heroes really exist?
Expanding on "the Doctor’s scepticism and Robin Hood’s coolness," Den of Geek says, "there’s something Arrow-esque in the parkour-style moments."
Meanwhile, the synopsis for the fourth episode, Listen, has already been released:
When ghosts of past and future crowd into their lives, the Doctor and Clara are thrown into an adventure that takes them to the very end of the universe.
"What happens when the Doctor is alone?" asks the writer of the episode, Steven Moffat. "And what scares the grand old man of Time and Space? Listen!"
