Doctor Who: The Complete Guide to Oxygen

Last week, the Doctor and Bill found there are plenty of monsters right here on Earth as they tangled with a nefarious plot in a haunted house. Tonight, in Oxygen, the TARDIS duo are off to space once more with Nardole on tow for a trip that will leave them breathless as they fight against the walking dead aboard a space station. Here’s everything you need to know about tonight’s ep

Synopsis (Radio Times)

The TARDIS picks up a distress call from deep space, but when the Doctor, Bill and Nardole try to answer it, they find themselves trapped within the space station Chasm Forge. On further investigation, they discover all but four people on board the facility have been murdered – but the dead are still walking. Now stranded in a future where oxygen is sold by the breath, and space-suits are valued more highly than their occupants, the time-travellers face a battle for survival against the darkest evil of all.
