New Series Episodes 83 & 84:
The Rebel Flesh / The Almost People

Plot

A solar storm forces the TARDIS to land on a tiny island on 22nd century Earth. There, a factory pumps out acid so corrosive that disposable, artificial humans are created to do all the work, taking the form of the real employees who control their doppelgangers remotely. These “Gangers” have all the memories of the real humans, but lose their sentience once the connection is broken... until the solar storm causes the Gangers to stabilise. Now the Doctor finds himself desperately trying to stop war from breaking out between the humans and their Ganger selves.
