There are big things to look forward to in the next episode of Doctor Who Season 12. It looks like Nikola Tesla will need to team up with Jodie Whittaker's Doctor in an effort to get rid of a terrifying new villain.

The teaser for Nikola Tesla’s Night of Terror opens with the inventor introducing himself to the Doctor who is clearly unimpressed. "Shame you're a big fat liar," she tells him. We're not sure why she believes so but it may have something to do with a new problem she has to face.

It is revealed that there might be a shapeshifter trying to impersonate people. But what is this strange new creature, where did it come from and what does it really want? The key might be Tesla himself.

The synopsis for the terrifying new episode reads as follows:

"It is 1903 and on the edge of Niagara Falls, something is wrong at Nikola Tesla’s generator plant, where someone - or something - is sabotaging the maverick inventor’s work. Has Tesla really received a message from Mars? And where does his great rival Thomas Edison fit into these events? The Doctor and her companions Yaz, Ryan and Graham must join forces with one of history’s greatest minds to save both him and planet Earth."

Doctor Who Season 12 Episode 4 is titled Nikola Tesla's Night of Terror. It will premiere on BBC on January 19.
