New Series Episode 122:
Last Christmas


The Doctor and Clara are drawn back together when a man claiming to be Santa Claus is discovered on her rooftop. Soon they find themselves at the North Pole, where a scientific research base has been attacked by Dream Crabs, which attach themselves to a person and induce a state of euphoric reverie -- all while slowly devouring their host. When Clara falls victim to the Dream Crabs and believes herself to be celebrating Christmas Day with Danny Pink, the Doctor must find a way to rescue her. But how can dreamers ever recognise that they are dreaming?
