DRAMA What's this? The Doctor, having cast off her trademark rainbow MT-shirt, has swapped it for a tuxedo under her long grey coat. Dastardly villains have a plot against the intelligence services, while attacks around the globe put Earth's security in danger. In the planet's time of greatest need, there's only one person a plummy-voiced spymaster called C can turn to.

"The name's Doctor... the Doctor."

Yes, this is Who's riff on James Bond — though if the episode title (Spyfall) hasn't tipped you off, you're probably not cut out to be 007 yourself.

Written by showrunner Chris Chibnall and with starry guest turns from Stephen Fry (as the aforementioned spy boss, in brilliant casting) and Lenny Henry, this is an explosive start to Jodie Whittaker's second series. And given this is part one of a two-part episode, don't be too surprised if there's a bit of a cliffhanger...
