‘Doctor Who’ Season Nine continues this Saturday with the third new episode, entitled ‘Under The Lake’ written by Toby Whithouse and directed by Daniel O’Hara.
The episode is described:
Under a lake, in the dripping gloom of an underwater base, stands a gleaming black space ship, recovered from the lake bed. Nothing is inside – but when the base crew start dying, they make a terrible discovery: ghosts are real! And their friends are refusing to stay dead! The Doctor and Clara arrive to find a base under siege from beyond the grave. But how can the dead be walking? What has brought them back? When the Doctor discovers the truth, it is more terrifying than any simple ghost story.
The BBC has released two clips from ‘Under The Lake’ to give you a small sampling of what to expect from the episode.
In the first, The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) coaches Clara (Jenna Coleman) from a distance as she evades capture by the mysterious menace in the underwater base. (No spoilers, the danger she is hiding from is only barely glimpsed.)
In the second clip, The Doctor and Clara are reunited and examining the aftermath of a battle between the episode’s creature and the crew of the base and what transpired is clearly more than a “food fight.”
‘Doctor Who’ airs every Saturday at 9/8c on BBC America.
