Another week, another load of new Doctor Who photos. This time it's for episode three of Peter Capaldi's debut series Robot of Sherwood - otherwise known as 'the Robin Hood one'. 

The pictures give a glimpse of what to expect from Mark Gatiss' first time writing for the twelfth Doctor, including Tom Riley as Hood, Jenna Coleman in full maid marion mode, Ben Miller's Sheriff of Nottingham and some deadly looking robots. The full synopsis is below. 

"In a sun-dappled Sherwood forest, the Doctor discovers an evil plan from beyond the stars and strikes up an unlikely alliance with Robin Hood. With all of Nottingham at stake, the Doctor must decide who is real and who is fake. Can impossible heroes really exist?"

Judging from the first picture, the Doctor is having trouble believing that they do...

While Clara seems totally on board… 

…Well, maybe… 

A few new sights here, including Robin Hood and his merry men!

And Ben Miller as the sheriff of Nottingham 

While these could very well be the robots mentioned in the title. They don't look friendly… 

Robot of Sherwood airs on BBC1 on 6th September
