This sneak peek from Saturday’s upcoming Doctor Who episode Time Heist gives us a quick introduction to a couple of new faces joining the Doctor and Clara in a bank robbing scheme. Rounding out the Doctor’s Four are Psi, a cyber-augmented gamer/hacker/bank robber, whose loves are 80s rock band couture and Borg implants, and Saibra, a mutant human shape-shifter with an eye shadow addiction.
The quartet are running down a hallway when the Doctor stops them so he can get to know the people he’ll be robbing the most dangerous bank in the cosmos with. Man, what do they mean by The Most Dangerous Bank in the Cosmos and why would anyone want to bank there? Wouldn’t everyone be putting their credits in The Most Secure Bank in the Cosmos instead?
Aliens today and their strange ideas …
