Doctor Who 8.25pm BBC1

DRAMA OF THE WEEK Doctor Who is always exploring time and space, but rarely that other component of the acronym Tardis (Time and Relative Dimension in Space) — yes, dimensions. The clue is in the episode title, Flatline, as a new menace from a 2D plane assails locals on a Bristol estate, flattening them into the walls. "Whatever they are," says the Doctor, "they're experimenting, testing, dissecting. Trying to understand three dimensions." Separated from Clara, he has his own problems when the Tardis starts to shrink...

Directed by Line of Duty's Douglas Mackinnon and written by Jamie Mathieson (who also penned last week's Orient-Express excursion), Flatline is tense and startlingly imaginative. It pokes fun at the Time Lord, gives Clara and graffiti artist Rigsy (Big School's Joivan Wade) a chance to prove their mettle, and invents a foe that is dimensionally transcendental.
