In 2013, something terrible is awakening in London’s National Gallery; in 1562, a murderous plot is afoot in Elizabethan England; and somewhere in space an ancient battle reaches its devastating conclusion. All of reality is at stake as the Doctor’s own dangerous past comes back to haunt him.
A few days prior to this Finnish television released another synopsis:
Which roughly translates as:
Clara saved The Doctor on Trenzalore, but entering the time stream awoke The Doctor’s dark side. What if The Doctor had chosen differently on the last day of Gallifrey? A millennium as The Doctor, but what now?
Both seem to indicate that Gallifrey will play an important role in the up and coming special.
