New Series Episode 82:
The Doctor's Wife


The Doctor receives a distress call from an old Time Lord friend, summoning him to a place beyond the universe. Clinging to the hope that there may still be Time Lord survivors, the Doctor pilots the TARDIS through a rift, only to find the time machine suddenly lifeless. Landing on a sentient planetoid called House, the Doctor discovers that he has been lured into a trap. But as House tries to devour the TARDIS -- and Amy and Rory along with it -- the Doctor finds an ally in Idris, a woman with whom he shares a deep, personal and unexpected connection.
