Oh my good gosh. So, everybody who concluded Karn was gonna figure in somehow were right, and yes, Claire Higgins is indeed reprising her role of Ohila from “Night of the Doctor”. There’s a lot of context missing from this, of course, so it’s sure to set the rumor mill a-buzzing. Someone’s looking for the Doctor, someone who isn’t nice but whose history with the Doctor goes way back. And he’s facing what may very well be his destruction (except of course we all know that somehow he’ll make everything work out). There are some very lovely lines in here about friendship, too; it’s very intriguing and incredible and suspicious as heck. Next week is gonna be a heck of an episode, I think!
