The first in a twopart finale sees some classic baddies return
SAT / BBC1
The Master (John Simm) is back, along with Missy (Michelle Gomez). Michelle has confirmed this to be her last series, so would it be a fair guess to think the pair could be saying their final farewells in next week’s finale?
● adventure / 6.45pm / BBC1 The Doctor, Bill, Nardole and Missy are now a quarrelsome foursome, but they’ll want to bond a little better when they arrive on a 400-mile-long spaceship about to be sucked into a black hole. Horrors waiting on board include the Master (John Simm, back after six years), who’ll be meeting up with Missy, even though they’re different incarnations of the same Time Lord! But the most terrifying passengers of all are Mondasian Cybermen – the original form of one of the Doctor’s deadliest, most famous foes. They first turned up in 1966, and have long been a favourite Doctor Who alien of Peter Capaldi’s. He’ll be happy these cloth-faced semimechanical beings are back, but his Doctor has one hell of a battle on his hands…
The Time Lord comes face to face with an old enemy
