‘Doctor Who’ teasers: 10 hints for ‘The Zygon Invasion’

The new season of Doctor Who continues this weekend with ‘The Zygon Invasion’, written by Peter Harness (‘Kill the Moon’).

The Zygons, a race of shapeshifting aliens, have been living in secret among us on Earth, unknown and unseen – until now!

When Osgood is kidnapped by a rogue gang of Zygons, the Doctor, Clara and UNIT must scatter across the world in a bid to set her free. But will they reach her in time, and can they stop an uprising before it’s too late?

> Here’s everything we know about Season 9 so far.

‘The Zygon Invasion’ will air at 8.15pm on Saturday 31 October on BBC One.

Here are 10 teasing spoiler-free lines of dialogue from the episode…


‘There was an attempted Zygon invasion before: in the Seventies, Eighties…’

‘You left us with an impossible situation, Doctor.’

‘Any race is capable of the best and the worst.’

‘I’m stalking out some of the most dangerous creatures imaginable.’

‘You start bombing them, you’ll radicalise the lot.’

‘Panic, paranoia… What would happen if they knew who they were?’

‘They turned into monsters and they came for us!’

‘This is your country. Protect it from the scary creatures, and also from the Zygons.’

‘Doctor, the ceasefire’s broken down!’

‘There will be truth, or there will be consequences.’

    Not pulling their punches politically are they?
    the teasers are the stuff we were predicting fom the pix. I’m looking forward to the stuff we aren’t expecting!
    Not sure how many will get the truth or consequences reference – but they make each story an easter egg hunt now. fun for any degree of nerdiness.
