First episode in new series sees Time Lord battling Wi-fi monsters in modern-day thriller set in London
He might be more likely to order a Jammie Dodger than a vodka martini, but that won't stop the Doctor following in James Bond's footsteps this Easter as the Time Lord returns to screens in a modern-day, London-set thriller.
With London's skyline as a backdrop, the first episode in this new series of Doctor Who, sees him battle with Wi-fi monsters, meet new companion Clara (again) and race through the city's streets on a motorbike.
All this and Celia Imrie still comes close to stealing the show as a brilliant, sharp baddie.
"We thought let's do it as a proper London thriller, as close as you can get – given that Doctor Who is mad – to James Bond," said showrunner Steven Moffat at a special screening of the episode, The Bells of Saint John. »
