Last Sunday’s episode of Doctor Who season 11, “Rosa,” was a historical adventure which saw the TARDIS land in 1950s Alabama, where the gang encountered Rosa Parks. It was an incredible hour of Who, moving and powerful on levels we don’t usually see when it comes to the Time Lord and her time traveling shenanigans. And while it was certainly a nice departure, it seems we’ll be getting back to the sci-fi adventures we’re more familiar with when this week’s episode, “Arachnids in the U.K.” debuts.
As you can see from the clip above, the Doctor will drop her team back home in Sheffield for a quick pit stop. However, they’ll arrive just as some strange events are happening. Judging by a previously released synopsis, it seems the episode will feature an invasion of the spiders as well, with the BBC teasing the following:
The Doctor, Yaz, Graham and Ryan find their way back to Yorkshire – and Yaz’s family – only to find something is stirring amidst the eight-legged arachnid population of Sheffield.
Showrunner Chris Chibnall again provides the script for this outing, with Salle Aprahamian getting behind the camera to direct. The Good Wife‘s Chris Noth, Shobna Gulati and Tanya Fear are among the guest cast. And while it’s too early to say how this outing will stack up to what we’ve already seen, it certainly sounds like a fun adventure for the Doctor and her TARDIS team and given how enjoyable the last few episodes have been, we’re definitely looking forward to tuning in.
Be sure to catch Doctor Who 11×04 “Arachnids in the U.K.” this Sunday, October 28th. With any luck, it’ll be a suitably scary one for those with creepy-crawly issues.
