This week Dr. Who tackles the mysterious real-life disappearance of the ninth Roman legion, a battalion of soldiers who were deployed during the Roman invasion of Britain in 45 AD before vanishing, “never to be seen again.”
A hunt for the lost Legion leads the Doctor and companions Bill Potts and Nardole into the middle of an ancient battle that could cast humanity into the dark forever. What is inside the cairn? And how far will they have to go defeat the terrifying alien Eaters of Light? Michelle Gomez returns as recurring guest character “Missy” in Rona Munroe’s chilling story which airs Saturday the 17th of June.
