Doctor Who returns this Sunday with Arachnids in the UK. Several pictures from the episode have now been released.  There are no spoilers here so long as you have seen the BBC’s Episode 4 – First Look and the Next Time Trailer, just an introduction to this week’s guest stars.

As we saw in the sneak peak, the Doctor (Jodie Whittaker) has made it back to Sheffield with Yaz (Mandip Gill), Graham (Bradley Walsh) and Ryan (Tosin Cole).  The three friends are set to depart the TARDIS leaving the Doctor to travel alone but her departure is delayed by an invite to join Yaz’s family for tea.

But something’s happening with the spiders in Sheffield.  What is going on with the eight-legged population and can the Doctor survive dinner with the Khans.

The Khan Family

From The Ghost Monument, we know that Yaz’s sister, Sonya (Bhavnisha Parmar) wants Yaz to move out so she can claim Yaz’s bedroom.  We also know that her dad, Hakim (Ravin J. Ganatra) drives her nuts but we don’t know much about her mum Najia (Shobna Gulati).  We will just have to wait and see what’s up.

What’s Up with Chris Noth and What Side is Tanya Fear’s Character on?

It was announced at the end of The Woman Who Fell To Earth, that Chris Noth would be guest starring on Doctor Who.  And who’s willing to bet that the former Law and Order / Sex in the City star will be this week’s villain?  We certainly are.  Also, guest starring is Tanya Fear as Jade. We will just have to find out who’s side she is on? Team TARDIS or not? There are also a few more guest star photos as well.
