The Doctor and Clara arrive in 19th century Yorkshire where moral crusader Mrs Gillyflower is recruiting beautiful people for her idyllic garden city. At the same time rigid corpses dyed red are piling up and the brother of one of the victims seeks help from Madame Vastra. She and her party travel to Yorkshire where they rescue Doctor Who and Clara from the clutches of Mrs Gillyflower.

The Doctor and his allies set out to stop her and her reclusive partner in crime Mr Sweet.Written by

Because the episode was underrunning, two new sequences were created featuring Vastra, Jenny and Strax. These were the scenes of the Paternoster gang plotting in the carriage en route to Yorkshire and studying Mrs Gillyflower's poster. See more »

What in the name of all that is holy HAPPENED? This episode might have been the most awful of the entire modern incarnation; We have no idea why there's a 19th century Scooby gang, the doctor is dipped in candle wax, and then they add in some Stepford Wives for good measure. Seriously, wth is going on? The plot of this episode was held together with duct tape and Jesus and the duct tape was discount.
Save yourself 45 minutes of waste and just skip this one. It adds nothing.
