Doctor Who Series 7 Episode Title Spoiler

…The Hider in the House.


On his official website Southorn posted the image you see above of Matt Smith and guest star Dougray Scott (Mission: Impossible II) lit solely by candle light in a section dedicated to the episode currently under construction.

Little is known about the episode although Dougray Scott, speaking on This Morning (via Doctor Who TV) confirmed that he would be playing a Professor (maybe even The Professor?) and, judging by his clothing in this leaked picture, it may also be a period piece (most publications are listing a ‘Victorian era’ tale but, personally, his attire looks more 1950’s/60’s.)

Shot this June, The Hider in the House was written by Booker Prize nominee Neil Cross (Luther) and directed by Jamie Payne (Ashes to Ashes) and features Kemi-Bo Jacobs (Lewis), Jessica Rain (Robin Hood) and, of course Jenna-Louise Coleman.
