But when the travellers meet the Drak-Arzin they discover that Foss is far more than a planet: it is, in fact, a giant life-form, nearing the end of its life-span. But what secret lies at the the heart of the Fossiansí mine? With the help of a young Fossian named Anura, the Doctor and Clara try to intermediate between Foss and its two warring people. Jacob Dudman reads this brand new adventure for the Eleventh Doctor.

His hilarious "Fashion Faux Pas: Viking Eye for a Saxon Guy" sees totally on trend vikings Bjorn & Sven help out a poor saxon lacking in sass, who just doesn't have the 'it' factor when it comes to viking style.
