Synopsis – Series 11 Episode Eight The Witchfinders

The Doctor, Ryan, Graham and Yaz arrive in 17th century Lancashire and become embroiled in a witch trial, run by the local landowner.

As fear stalks the land, the arrival of King James I only serves to intensify the witch hunt. But is there something even more dangerous at work? Can the Doctor and friends keep the people of Bilehurst Cragg safe from all the forces that are massing in the land?

    The Myrka, so that means that the series 11 finale and penultimate episode will be earth-set

    Merry Sunday is tomorrow! Or yesterday or Today, or um… who knows when. It depends on where and when you are seeing this. But anyway, MERRY SUNDAY! My Saturday wasn’t that Good

    Does Jodie have a tennis ball in her mouth on the photo, or is it just me

    As well as this Chibnall said that there will be three Future stories (Ghost Monument, Tsuranga Conundrum and Kerblam!), three Past stories (Rosa, Demons of the Punjab and Witchfinders) and Four present day stories (Woman Who Fell to Earth, Arachnids in the UK + Two Others)

    I think that ep9 or ep8 is going to be in the victorian era, since Siobhon Finneran seems like a victorian based on her surroundings and clothing.

    I think Krasko will because he was teleported to an unknown time

    Why have i got a feeling that episodes 9 & 10 are actually in fact going to be a two parter? Possibly featuring the Daleks. Chi bnall said no two-partners, but TWWFTE ended on a cliffhanger with the Doctor accidentally transporting herself and the 3 companions into space and that was resolved in TGM.

    Also part of me thinks it’s a big finale as the Radio Times usually has the episode guide, it was omitted this year, and just to add a theory, maybe Ryan’s dad may turn out to be a big villain and part of a more bigger storyline. Possibly someone from the Doctor’s past that she won’t be expecting to see?

    I,m assuming this might be the Alan cumming episode with charles I and set in the 17th century.
