Doctor Who Season 12 Episode 4 Recap:

The fourth episode of the twelfth season of ‘Doctor Who’ begins with a man talking about a wireless power transmitter. It turns out, that this man is Nikola Tesla, the American inventor. Soon, he finds out that a worker has died due to an electric shock. When he goes to investigate, someone starts shooting at him and his assistant after he discovers an orb. The Doctor comes to the rescue and the three of them run away to board a train to New York City. In the train, the Doctor’s companions are waiting.

The Doctor tells Tesla that she arrived to help after detecting an energy signature. She reveals that she can still track the energy signature from the train. Tesla refuses to give the orb he found to the Doctor. In New York, Tesla’s inventions are being protested against due to misinformation spread by Thomas Edison.

In Tesla’s lab, Tesla shows the Doctor the orb. It turns out the orb is the Orb of Thassor, which has been modified to do something else. A man named Harold Green, who works for Edison comes and clicks a picture of the lab. The Doctor orders Yasmin, Skerritt and Tesla to guard the orb while Graham, Ryan and she investigate Edison.

A mysterious creature kills all of Edison’s workers when the Doctor, Graham and Ryan are talking to him. The creature looks like Harold Green and the Doctor, Graham, Ryan and Edison are forced to run. The team finds the real Harold Green dead. Meanwhile, Tesla’s assistant has let two of the mysterious, shape-shifting aliens in. Tesla and Yasmin are taken to the aliens’ ship. Apparently, the queen of the aliens (known as the Skithra) wants Tesla to fix her broken ship.

The Doctor comes to the rescue and all of them exit the Skithra sheep. The Doctor sends a message to the Queen. However, the Queen threatens to kill everyone on Earth if Tesla is not handed over. However, the Doctor does not give Tesla up. Tesla and the Doctor power up the inventor’s Wardenclyffe Tower and attack the Skithra queen’s ship with lightning.
