In the near future, the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and Clara (Jemma Coleman) find themselves on a space shuttle making a suicide mission to the moon. Crash-landing on the lunar surface, they find a mining base full of corpses, vicious spider-like creatures poised to attack, and a terrible dilemma. Written by Peter Harness (Wallander), directed by Paul Wilmshurst (Da Vinci’s Demons), and guest starring Hermione Norris (MI-5) and Tony Osoba (Coronation Street and the classic Doctor Who episodes Destiny of the Daleks and Dragonfire), Kill The Moon premieres Saturday, October 4th @ 9:00 p.m. EST on BBC America.

Executive producer Steven Moffat told the Radio Times in August, “When Clara turns to the Doctor for help, she gets the shock of her life. Is the man she’s trusted so long really a hero after all? Is he even her friend?”
Following Doctor Who and an all-new episode of Intruders, Peter Capaldi joins Academy Award-winner Denzel Washington and actress Gemma Arterton on the season premiere of The Graham Norton Show, Saturday October 4 at 11:00pm EST.
