DRAMA Time marches on to the Drum, a hi-tech underwater mining facility in Caithness. It's the year 2119 and the crew discover an alien craft on the lake bed. The vessel is empty, but soon they're under attack from homicidal, hollow-eyed apparitions.

The Doctor and Clara arrive three days later and are forced to consider ghosts really exist? And if so wvhat has created them?

Under the Lake is spooky and blessed with haunting imagery, but even by Doctor Who's standards feels derivative. Perhaps we've seen one too many isolated HQs with crews assailed by monstrous versions of themselves. It's written by Toby Whithouse, creator of Being Human and The Game (BBC2's Cold War thriller unjustly cancelled earlier this year). He knows his Who, so there's hope next week's concluding part will complement and bolster this-opener.
