The BBC has released new photos and a trailer for the upcoming third episode of ‘Doctor Who’ Season Ten.  The episode, entitled ‘Thin Ice’ was written by Sarah Dollard and directed by Bill Anderson.

Here is the synopsis for the episode:

Episode 3: ‘Thin Ice’, written by Sarah Dollard, directed by Bill Anderson:

In Regency England, beneath the frozen Thames, something is stirring. The Doctor and Bill arrive at the last of the great frost fairs and find themselves investigating a string of impossible disappearances – people have been vanishing on the ice! Bill is about to discover that the past is more like her world than she expected, and that not all monsters come from outer space.

The episode also shows Bill (Pearl Mackie) starting to grapple with the ramifications of time travel.  “You travel into the past – there’s got to be rules,” she realizes. “If I step on a butterfly, it could send ripples through time.”

She will also have to confront The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and just what type of man he is.  “Have you ever killed anyone?” she questions.

Nicholas Burns guest stars as the mysterious Lord Sutcliffe, who has something to do with the disappearances.  “The Creature will be fed,” he sinisterly announces.
