DOCTOR WHO: Everything You Need to Know About THE POWER OF THREE

Three weeks on, and we’re at the penultimate episode of this run of Doctor Who. It’s gone quickly, hasn’t it? Anyway, we’re at episode four, titled The Power of Three. In tonight’s episode, we’ll see the invasion of the very small black cubes, watch the Doctor moving in with the Ponds, and meet Rory’s dad. Again. So, as usual, here’s all you need to know about the slow invasion…

The Doctor and the Ponds puzzle an unlikely invasion of Earth, as millions of sinister black cubes arrive overnight, almost like presents falling from the sky.
