We’ve seen pictures of the mysterious and dangerous looking Teller before in Doctor Who 805 “Time Heist” – Photo Gallery, but here you can catch a glimpse of him in action. Mind you, that action only consists of him walking into the main lobby of the bank while everyone else watches on. It’s made a bit more tense by having his walk slowed down a bit and accompanied by music that makes me feel like an old-style Western shoot-out is about to happen.
Why is the Teller in restraints? It looks like that’s his typical garb and not something he’s been thrown into to be taken away for committing a crime. As far as I know, the only crime being committed is the robbery planned by the Doctor and his own not-so-merry band of thieves.
