Doctor Who Season 8 Episode 4 Preview: The Doctor is Listening... For What?

at .

What can you expect from Doctor Who Season 8 Episode 4?

Hard to know, actually.

BBC America is relatively cryptic in leaking any information on upcoming episodes, but we do have a clip and photos as well as the official BBCA synopsis:

When ghosts of past and future crowd into their lives, the Doctor and Clara are thrown into an adventure that takes them to the very end of the universe. What happens when the Doctor is alone? And what scares the grand old man of Time and Space? Listen!

According to RedEye Chicago, Clara and Danny Pink will go on their first date in this installment. It will be awkward (can it be as awkward as planning their first drink?), but won't stop them from going on more!

It also appears this hour will be Clara and Danny centric, as together with a man named Orson Pink (whether a relative of the future or past remains to be seen!) they change the future of The Doctor. Clara seems to really be getting the hang of this timey wimey stuff, right?

Is that a young Danny in the promos with Clara? Could Orson be his dad? I can't wait to learn more about Mr. Pink, and given the mathematics theme and his profession as a math teacher, there could be more than meets they eye here. Get this - he's not supposed to meet the Doctor for another two episodes! Hmmmm.

Check out the sneak peek, flip through the photos and be back here on Saturday after Doctor Who airs for a full review!

If you can't wait for more, you can watch Doctor Who online while you wait!
