Two episodes insights, one unlikely spoon. It’s our Doctor Who series 8 news update…

As we sit excitedly on the verge of the weekend and a new Doctor Who, we’ve pulled together some recent news stories to bring you up to date on the show.

First up, the BBC has released the initial synopsis for episode five Time Heist, which reads like this:

“The Doctor turns bank robber when he is given a task he cannot refuse - to steal from the most dangerous bank in the cosmos.”

“With the help of a beautiful shape-shifter and cyber-augmented gamer, the Doctor and Clara must fight their way past deadly security and come face to face with the fearsome Teller: a creature of terrifying power that can detect guilt…”

Sounds like an interesting one. But before we get there we will see the ‘Doctor versus Boredom’ episode Listen, and first Robot Of Sherwood this Saturday. Speaking of which, we’ve recently seen a fun preview clip to this Saturday’s Sherwood-set adventure, too. Here it is…

This looks like a fun, light-hearted episode to us, which could be a winning contrast to what we’ve seen so far. We’re hearing also that the BBC have removed a beheading scene out of Robot Of Sherwood in respect of recent events.

The episode airs this Saturday at 19:30 on BBC 1. Read Simon’s spoiler-free review here.
