Today brings the second episode in the series, The Witch's Familiar (Trapped and alone in a terrifying Dalek city, the Doctor is at the heart of an evil Empire: no sonic, no TARDIS, nobody to help. With his greatest temptation before him, can the Doctor resist? And will there be mercy) on BBC One at 19:45, my roundup of the episode will be going live tomorrow as usual.
