Season 8 of "Doctor Who" continues this weekend, introducing a new line-up of companions for Peter Capaldi's Doctor in his latest adventure.
For Time Heist — by Steve Thompson and Steven Moffat — think Doctor Who: The Heist Movie, as the Doctor and his companions turn bank robbers to break into and "steal from the most dangerous bank in the cosmos."
Their immediate memories erased so that they can thwart a telepathic monster used as the bank's ultimate security, the premise of Time Heist the Doctor (Peter Capaldi), Clara (Jenna Coleman), Psi (Jonathan Bailey) and Saibra (Pippa Bennett-Warner) find they've been tasked with trying to rob the Bank of Karabraxos:
With the help of a beautiful shape-shifter and cyber-augmented gamer, the Doctor and Clara must fight their way past deadly security and come face to face with the fearsome Teller: a creature of terrifying power that can detect guilt.
Jonathan Bailey (26) — who is probably best known to genre fans for playing a young Leonardo da Vinci in the two seasons (2011/2012) of the BBC comedy drama series, Leonardo — played Olly Stevens in Season 1 of Chris Chibnall's Broadchurch and Jack Patterson in Season 1 of W1A.
Pippa Bennett-Warner, also 26, was most recently seen as Ziggy in Lucy Kirkwood's Sky drama series, The Smoke.
Time Heist represents the Doctor Who debut for both actors.
Directed by Douglas Mackinnon, the episode also stars Keeley Hawes (recently seen being investigated by Martin Compston and Vicky McClure in the second season of Jed Mercurio's Line of Duty) as Ms Delphox, head of security at the bank.
Meanwhile, the synopsis for next week's installment, courtesy of Blogtor Who, The Caretaker, is also available:
The terrifying Skovox Blitzer is ready to destroy all humanity - but worse, and any second now, Danny Pink and the Doctor are going to meet.
When terrifying events threaten Coal Hill school, the Doctor decides to go undercover.
The Caretaker has been co-written by Gareth Roberts and Steven Moffat. This is Roberts's fourth script for the series, after Planet of the Dead — which he co-wrote with Russell T Davies (Cucumber) — and The Lodger and Closing Time, both of which featured James Corden (The Wrong Mans) as Craig, a companion to the Eleventh Doctor (Matt Smith).
