Doctor Who Magazine 513 Synopses

The latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine (#513) has descriptions for several upcoming episodes of the show.

8. "The Lie of the Land"
The Monks have been with us from the beginning. They shepherded humanity through its formative years, gently guiding and encouraging, like a parent clapping their hands at a baby’s first steps. They have been instrumental in all the advances of technology and culture. They watched proudly as man invented the lightbulb, the telephone, the internet. They were even there to welcome the first men on the Moon.

They have defended us, too. Who can forget the time the Monks defeated the Daleks, the Cybermen, the Sontarans?

And they have left their imprint in the arts as well. The Monks have found their way into Dickens and the Jason Bourne films…

Two species, sharing a history as happily as they share a planet.
9. "Empress of Mars"
The Doctor, Bill and Nardole pilot the TARDIS to Mars in the year 1851, after present-day NASA captures a very peculiar image from the red planet. Here, they run into an expedition of Victorians with a lone Ice Warrior as their servant. The Doctor suspects this scaly dish-washer may not be so domesticated after all but is he just being too cynical this time?
10. "The Eaters of Light"
Whatever happened to the Ninth Legion? Bill thinks she knows. The Doctor thinks he knows better. And Nardole thought they were having a quiet night in with a boxset and popcorn. But why watch TV when you’ve a time machine and an enquiring mind?
11. "World Enough and Time"
Had we but world enough and time
This coyness, lady, were no crime.
We would sit down, and think which way
To walk, and pass our long love’s day…

But at my back I always hear
Time’s winged chariot hurrying near;
And yonder all before us lie
Deserts of vast eternity.
Thy beauty shall no more be found;
Nor, in thy marble Vault shall sound
My echoing song…
