Doc­tor Who

What's on TV - - What’s On -

Look out for former Ca­su­alty star Suzanne Packer, who turns up in Doc­tor Who this week. In­jured and stranded in the wilds of a far-flung gal­axy, the Doc­tor, Yaz, Gra­ham and Ryan must join up with a group of strangers to sur­vive against one of the uni­verse’s most deadly crea­tures…

The Doc­tor and her pals bat­tle a deadly crea­ture…

Ca­su­alty’s Suzanne Packer turns up as a guest star in Doc­tor Who this week. Suzanne plays mys­te­ri­ous Gen­eral Eve Cicero, a former hero space fighter pi­lot, who is at a fu­tur­is­tic hos­pi­tal with her brother Durkos (co­me­dian Ben Bai­ley Smith) and robot ser­vant Ro­nan.

The Doc­tor and her com­pan­ions Gra­ham (Bradley Walsh), Yas­min (Mandip Gill) and Ryan (Tosin Cole) are in­ca­pac­i­tated and re­cov­er­ing in this hos­pi­tal af­ter be­ing caught up in a ‘sonic mine’ ex­plo­sion on a planet that’s piled high with junk.

Soon, the TARDIS trav­ellers, med­i­cal staff and other pa­tients at the hos­pi­tal come un­der deadly at­tack from a fe­ro­cious lit­tle crea­ture called a Pt­ing…

At the heart of the mys­tery is some­thing called The Tsuranga Co­nun­drum, and the Doc­tor re­lies heav­ily on her friends to help de­feat the crit­ter!

‘The Doc­tor works so well with her com­pan­ions,’ says Jodie Whit­taker, who plays the Time Lord. ‘We are all now close friends. Thank­fully, none of us find Bradley an­noy­ing – it would be a long nine months of film­ing if we did!’
