On Saturday night, the Doctor and Clara will team up with Emma (Jessica Raine) and Professor Alec Palmer (Dougray Scott) for a spooky, scary trip through a haunted mansion. Of course, this being Doctor Who, things aren't always what they seem. We've screened the episode, and have thrown together 11 more semi-spoilery images for your devourment. Don't say we never did anything nice for you, k? Read on!
The Haunted Mansion
Last week marked Clara's first real brush with death, and while the entire planet isn't at stake in "Hide," the Doctor and Clara — who enter the 1974 ghost hunt as "Ghostbusters" — quickly realize that this trip won't be as "fun" as they were hoping.
Dougray Scott's Professor is hiding more than a few secrets of his own, though he's poured most of his dirty deeds into the search for the "Witch in the Well" that consumes him. If only he had an iPhone 5 to snap a quality shot.
"This won't be stolen from me, do you understand?" The Professor isn't too happy about "giving up" his life's work to the Doctor, but once he realizes what's lurking about, something tells us he might give the quirky visitor a second chance.
Well, we know the Doctor technically isn't... anyway. With the gals and the guys separated into pairs, you bet your bottom dollar there's some chat on looovvveee connections.
A Lost Soul
Why can't things ever be easy? This device may look simple, but communicating with a ghost requires a severe amount of mental energy. Sorry, Emma.
An Impossible Astronaut
Why are we outside now? Why does this look like the beginning of time in Narnia? Why is the Doctor in a space suit for a '1970's ghost episode? Trust us, this case isn't as cut-and-dry as it may look.
The End of Days
Why does this now look like the end of time in Narnia? You'll find out soon, and it might just have a major impact on Clara's feelings toward the Doctor, and about time travel in general.
He's Cross With You
"I'm giving you a face. Can you see me? Look at my face." Matt Smith brings his A-Game when it comes to humor this week. We won't tell you why he's cross at this particular moment, but get psyched for witty dialogue, bitchy banter, and the phrase "no takesies backsies."
A Walking Tour
Wait, they're in the rainforest now? With giant, creepy blue bugs? This episode is a whirlwind, high-budget adventure, folks.
Step Into the Light
"I am the Doctor, and I am afraid." What lurks at the other end of this "mysterious light?" We can tell you it certainly ain't pretty.
In one of our favorite bits of the episode, Clara and the TARDIS have a bit of a disagreement. "The TARDIS is like a cat," the Doctor explains. She's slow to trust. Also, she rips up all of your toilet paper, pukes on your bed, breaks your lamps, and knocks over every glass of water you have the nerve to try to drink. Wait, what? No, we're not bitter.
