New Series Episode 127:
The Girl Who Died


In the Middle Ages, the Doctor and Clara are captured by Vikings and taken to their village. No sooner have they arrived, however, than the village is attacked by bloodthirsty aliens called the Mire, who harvest the testosterone from warriors. A reluctant Doctor finds himself trying to prepare the outmatched Vikings for battle against the Mire, knowing full well that the situation is hopeless. The only wild card is Ashildr, an unusual Viking girl for whom destiny may have the strangest of designs...
