New Series Episode 115:
The Caretaker


The Doctor detects the presence of an alien war machine called the Skovox Blitzer somewhere in East London, so he poses as Coal Hill School's caretaker to investigate. This masquerade draws him deeper into Clara's personal life, and he develops a frosty relationship with an unsuspecting Danny Pink. Matters escalate when Danny inadvertently spoils the Doctor's plan to deal with the menace. Clara is faced with no choice but to reveal the truth about her adventures in the TARDIS, while time is running out before the Skovox Blitzer destroys the Earth.
