Tread Perilously begins a Grab Bag month (featuring special guests) with a Doctor Who episode called “Hide.”
When The Doctor and Clara land near a spooky house somewhere in England during the 1970s, they befriend Emma, a medium, and Alec, a would-be ghost hunter enchanted with the local legend. Will their investigation prove to be an actual haunting or will The Doctor science all the romance out of the seeming paranormal phenomenon? Also, will Emma’s words about him to Clara prove to be correct? And, for that matter, will Clara’s words about Alec also prove to be the truth? And just why did The Doctor bring his new companion to this event?
