Doctor Who fans were left in a state of panic after a Weeping Angel managed to take control of the Tardis in scenes that aired tonight.

The last few minutes of the latest chapter, titled Once Upon A Time, saw the terrifying villain infiltrate the police box, with Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor and her companions Yaz (played by Mandip Gill) and Dan (John Bishop) fearing for their lives.

‘Don’t blink!’ the Time Lord warned. ‘Keep your eyes on the angel and stay behind me!’

But a mere second later and the very worst had happened. ‘The angel has a Tardis!’ the Doctor declared.

Fans were both scared to death and excited by the return of the villain and are waiting with bated breath for more.

‘So we see a Weeping Angel has hijacked the Tardis!’ wrote one on social media. ‘That could get rather interesting.’

‘The weeping angels next week, nightmares await,’ added another.

While viewers will have to sit tight until next week to learn the fate of the Doctor and the rest of the team, an episode four teaser showed that the next chapter will transport them back in time to Devon in 1967.

‘A little girl has gone missing, Professor Eustacius Jericho is conducting psychic experiments, and in the village graveyard, there is one gravestone too many,’ a synopsis states.

‘Why is Medderton known as the Cursed Village, and what do the Weeping Angels want?’

Just three more episodes remain before Doctor Who: Flux is wrapped up.

Jodie has previously spoken about her upcoming Doctor Who exit, saying she will be ‘filled with a lot of grief’ when she leaves. 

Her time as The Doctor will be coming to an end next year, as it was announced that she will be departing the show after four specials set for autumn 2022.

Showrunner Chris Chibnall is also set to leave the programme to be replaced by Russell T Davies, who was behind the 2005 revival of the show.

Speaking to and other gathered press, Jodie discussed her emotions by saying: ‘You have to honour the show and to honour everything. Me and Chris, there was this thing of like, “We want to do three seasons”. 

‘But no-one holds you to that so there was always a conversation, it was always fluid. But when you commit to that decision.’

Doctor Who continues on Sunday at 6.20pm on BBC One.
