We’ve just had the sixth episode of Doctor Who season 11, which means there’s only four more to go until we don’t have the TARDIS on our screens every Sunday again. We previously learned the details for the next two outings and now, the titles and synopses have been released for episode 9 and the grand finale, episode 10.

First up, the penultimate installment of season 11 is called “It Takes You Away,” from writer Ed Hime and director Jamie Childs (his third this season). Guest stars include Ellie Wallwork and Kevin Eldon and it promises to take the Thirteenth Doctor and her friends to creepy rural Norway.

“On the edge of a Norwegian fjord, in the present day, The Doctor, Ryan, Graham and Yaz discover a boarded-up cottage and a girl named Hanne in need of their help. What has happened here? What monster lurks in the woods around the cottage – and beyond?”

The final episode, meanwhile, is titled “The Battle of Ranskoor Av Kolos,” comes from the pen of showrunner Chris Chibnall and hey, it’s directed by our old pal Jamie Childs again. The regular cast will be joined by Game of Thrones‘ Mark Addy, Phyllis Logan (Downton Abbey) and Percelle Ascott.

The synopsis, meanwhile, teases that the TARDIS team will have their work cut out for them as they have to answer multiple distress calls on a mysterious planet, upon which there’s an enigmatic race called the Ux.

“On the planet of Ranskoor Av Kolos, lies the remains of a brutal battlefield. But as the Doctor, Graham, Yaz and Ryan answer nine separate distress calls, they discover the planet holds far more secrets. Who is the mysterious commander with no memory? What lies beyond the mists? Who or what are the Ux?

“The answers will lead the Doctor and her friends towards a deadly reckoning.”

After season 11 ends, we’ve then got the customary additional special. However, in a break with tradition, the special will skip Christmas this year and air on New Year’s Day instead. This is the first time in 13 years that the show won’t have something out on Christmas Day and the first time that an episode will debut on New Year’s since 2010’s “The End of Time: Part Two.”

Before that occurs, though, we have the rest of the second half of Doctor Who season 11 to enjoy.
