Saturday 30th August: "The Doctor is faced with his deadliest mission yet - a journey into the heart of darkness"


Into the Dalek

“Imagine the worst thing in the universe, and then don’t bother because you’re looking at it right now. This is evil refined as engineering.”


What’s the most dangerous place in the universe? Where is the last place the Doctor should ever stand? He’s faced with his deadliest mission yet – a journey into the heart of darkness, one even he is scared to make. In the dying days of a bitter war, a beleaguered human army has one last hope: a Dalek so damaged it has become good. But can it be trusted? To find out, a miniaturised team, led by the Doctor and Clara, embark on a fantastic voyage into the Dalek itself…
