Doctor Who: Flux Finale Title, Overview Not a Good Sign for The Doctor

Even with the fourth episode still days away from hitting our screens, is it really ever too early to take a look at where things are headed for Jodie Whittaker's Doctor, Yaz (Mandip Gill) & Dan's (John Bishop)? Well, when we're talking about a sixth & final episode of Series 13 that doesn't appear to hold out a lot of hope for Team TARDIS (and the universe), maybe patience is a virtue. But since you're here, you should know that the final chapter is entitled "Chapter Six: The Vanquishers" and we have the overview below. And trust us… it's a bit of a mood-killer.

Doctor Who: Flux Series 13 Episode 6 "Chapter Six: The Vanquishers": In the final epic chapter in the story of the Flux, all hope is lost. The forces of darkness are in control. But when the monsters have won, who can you count upon to save the universe? Directed by Azhur Saleem and written by Chris Chibnall.

But to help brighten your spirits, here's a look behind the scenes at the newest additions to the cast:

Now here's your look at the promo & overview for "Village of the Angels," followed by the official trailer and Series 13 overview:

Doctor Who: Flux Series 13 Episode 4 "Village of the Angels": Devon, November 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. Why is Medderton known as "The Cursed Village"? And what do the Weeping Angels want? Directed by Jamie Magnus Stone and written by Chris Chibnall & Maxine Alderton.

She's back. The Thirteenth Doctor is returning for the thirteenth series in what is set to be a six-part Event Serial. Since their last epic battle in "Revolution of the Daleks," the Doctor (Jodie Whittaker) and Yaz (Mandip Gill) have been exploring the universe together but with the Doctor now questioning everything about her past there, she will undoubtedly be searching for answers. This adrenalin-fueled; universe-spanning series will also see an addition to the TARDIS with actor and comedian John Bishop joining the cast as Dan Lewis who will quickly learn there's more to the Universe than he could ever believe. Jacob Anderson ("Game of Thrones," "Broadchurch") is also set to make his debut on Doctor Who as reoccurring character Vinder. Jacob's new role will see him join forces with the Doctor, Yaz, and Dan as the Doctor faces her biggest ever adventure. Series 13 is set to introduce some terrifying new adversaries and the return of truly iconic old enemies. Expect action, fun, scares, extraordinary new worlds as the Doctor and her friends confront a deadly evil…

Joining Jacob Anderson's (Game of Thrones) Vinder in the cast are Robert Bathurst (Cold Feet, Toast Of London, Downton Abbey), Thaddea Graham (The Irregulars, Us), Blake Harrison (The Inbetweeners, A Very English Scandal, World On Fire), Kevin McNally (Pirates of the Caribbean, Designated Survivor, Downton Abbey), Craig Parkinson (Line of Duty, Intergalactic, The English Game), Sara Powell (Unforgotten, Damned), Annabel Scholey (The Split, Britannia), Gerald Kyd (Cold Feet, Britannia), Penelope Ann McGhie (The Crown, Harry Potter), Rochenda Sandall (Line Of Duty), and Sam Spruell (The North Water).
