In the trailer, the Doctor sets the scene by narrating a tense introduction that warns of a ‘big serious crisis.’
But it seems the Time Lady is just leaving a voicemail, as she ends the call with ‘kisses! It’s quite French that isn’t it!’
The TARDIS team then emerged dressed in matching bow ties, after the time machine appears to land in a historical plantation of sorts.
As Graham (played by Bradley Walsh) asks: ‘Who are you Doc?’ she pensively responds: ‘You don’t know me.’

Graham reassures the Doctor: ‘We’ll be right here by your side,’ before the animated Time Lady declares: ‘Let’s go.’
