In the Haereticum – the Vatican’s secret library of blasphemy – there is an ancient book known only as The Veritas. Throughout history, anyone who has ever read it has immediately taken their own life. Now a new translation is online, and the danger is spreading. The Vatican appeals to the Doctor. Will he read The Veritas? But can even the Doctor survive the ultimate truth?
The Doctor played by Peter Capaldi is joined by new companion Bill (Pearl Mackie) and Nardole (Matt Lucas). This episode also sees the return of Michelle Gomez as she guest stars as Missy.
This new series was shot in Cardiff at BBC Wales Roath Lock Studios and is produced by BBC Studios Wales.
