DRAMA After trips back in time to the American South and the Partition of India, the week Jodie Whittaker's Tardis team visit some UK history - specifically 17th-century Lancashire, where they find themselves embroiled in a witch trial run by a local landowner.

But could something even more sinister than dark magic be at work in the land? And if so, what really threatens the village of Bilehurst Cragg?
