Last week saw the Zygons take over, replacing Clara and neutralising UNIT in the UK and US – and with the Doctor and Osgood on a plane targeted by a heat-seeking missile, things were looking pretty dire for the Doctor and co. Can war still be averted? The Zygon Inversion airs tonight, and to whet your appetite for the conclusion of the Zygon two-parter, here’s all you need to know:

The Zygons have taken over, and the future of Earth is sealed in a box back in Unit’s archive.
