Doctor Who Picture Preview: A New Villain!

at .

The Doctor and Clara are about to become bank robbers. For a good cause? 

It's unknown. Here's the official BBCA synopsis for Doctor Who Season 8 Episode 5:

The Doctor turns bank robber when he is given a task he cannot refuse – to steal from the most dangerous bank in the cosmos. With the help of a beautiful shape-shifter and cyber-augmented gamer, the Doctor and Clara must fight their way past deadly security and come face to face with the fearsome Teller: a creature of terrifying power that can detect guilt...

Apparently when the TARDIS phone rings in Clara's flat and suddenly a fully formed heist gang is together and ready to roll. Nobody knows how they got there and that's part of the adventure.

Considering there are so many official portraits for the installment, it seems this will not be the last time we encounter the characters. Would they go to all of this work if they were one and done?

We know for certain that Mrs. Delphox is a new villain The Doctor encounters, but what about the others? Good or bad? You'll have to watch to find out. 

In the meantime, flip through the photos and be back here on Saturday for a full review of the installment.
