Doctor Who – Time Heist Preview

Time Heist is the title of the fifth episode of the 2014 season of Doctor Who. The episode is the second to be co-written by showrunner Steven Moffat, this time with Stephen Thompson who has previously penned the lack-lustre Curse of the Black Spot and last year’s Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS.

In Time Heist, The Doctor and Clara are tasked with robbing a bank. No details have emerged yet to explain who manages to convince our heroes to take part in the heist of the bank managed by Ms. Delphox (played by Keeley Hawes), but this should hopefully be a fun episode filled with traps, sci-fi security and hijnks. The episode is directed by Douglass Mackinnon who I thought did a fantastic job with last week’s Listen. Here’s the official blurb:

The Doctor turns bank robber when he is given a task he cannot refuse: steal from the most dangerous bank in the cosmos. With the help of a beautiful shape-shifter and cyber-augmented gamer, the Doctor and Clara must fight their way past deadly security and come face to face with the fearsome Teller, a creature of terrifying power that can detect guiltWritten by Stephen Thompson (Sherlock) and Steven Moffat (Sherlock), directed by Douglas Mackinnon (Silent Witness), and guest starring Keeley Hawes (Upstairs, Downstairs)

Here are some preview images sent to us by BBC America in advance of the episode.
