'In the Forest of the Night' is written by Frank Cottrell Boyce and directed by Sheree Folkson.

Episodes eleven and twelve are written by Moffat, and directed by Rachel Talalay.

In other "Doctor Who' news, Jenna Coleman – who plays Clara – has said that being the Doctor's assistant is a once in a lifetime opportunity, and because of that, she doesn't mind the gruelling schedule.

"When I'm here in Cardiff, it's me and Peter [Capaldi], all day, every day," she told The Independent.

"It's one of those jobs that will only happen once – the whole adventure that it brings. The key is not to worry about the future, and enjoy it."

She also described Capaldi's Doctor as "almost the opposite" to Matt Smith's. She added that the relationship between Clara and The Doctor will be "turbulent".

'Doctor Who' starts on Saturday on BBC One at 7:50pm.
