The Fires of Pompeii Preview

Doctor Who continues this week as the Doctor and Donna open the TARDIS doors in AD 79, in the city of Pompeii – and it’s Volcano Day!

There they discover psychic powers and beasts of stone running riot in the streets of old Pompeii. The time-travellers face their greatest challenge yet – can established history be changed, or must the Doctor let everyone die?

Joining David Tennant as the Doctor and Catherine Tate as Donna are Peter Capaldi, Phil Davis and Tracey Childs.

Look out for some astonishing monsters, as well as the Doctor facing the kind of challenge he hasn’t faced since 1964…

Fires of Pompeii airs at 6.45pm this Saturday evening.
