Mummy on the Orient Express — how's that for an episode title! (2014)

Doctor Who 8.35pm BBC1

Mummy on the Orient Express — how's that for an episode title! It promises much and for the most part delivers. This being Doctor Who, the famous train isn't running between Paris and Istanbul — it's snaking through the cosmos. And the mummy isn't any old bandaged cadaver but a ghoul that takes exactly 66 seconds to stalk and kill its victims on the train, and then... well, any more would be telling.

After his serious falling-out with Clara last week, the Doctor comes aboard and investigates the deaths, assisted by chief engineer Perkins (comedian and Who nut Frank Skinner revelling in a rare dramatic role). Elegantly mounted, this excursion might not be quite the first-class ticket for adults but the mummy should chill and delight younger admirers, while Peter Capaldi weaves a spell as the Time Lord making difficult choices.
