We’re just three episodes away from the 50th anniversary, and we’re at episode six of this series, titled The Crimson Horror. In tonight’s episode, we’ll see the return of everyone’s favourite Silurian/Sontaran/human combo, find out what lies beyond the gates of the mysterious Sweetville mill, and see the Doctor as we’ve never seen him before. So, as usual, here’s all you need to know about tonight’s episode:

There’s something very odd about Mrs Gillyflower’s Sweetville mill, with its perfectly clean streets and beautiful people.

There’s something even stranger about the bodies washing up in the river, all bright red and waxy. When the Doctor and Clara go missing, it’s up to Vastra, Jenny and Strax to rescue them before they too fall victim to the Crimson Horror!
