The BBC have today released the official synopsis for the next episode of Doctor Who, Planet of the Dead, and it is now available to view on the BBC Press Office's official website. It contains minor spoilers regarding the episode's plot and also mentions the names of the episode's main cast. As well as being available on the BBC Press Office's website, the synopsis can also be viewed here on this site below;

When a London bus takes a detour to an alien world, the Doctor must join forces with the extraordinary Lady Christina, in this one-off seasonal special. But the mysterious planet holds terrifying secrets, hidden in the sand. And time is running out, as the deadly Swarm gets closer. Planet Of The Dead features David Tennant as the Doctor, Michelle Ryan as Lady Christina and Lee Evans as Malcolm. It is written by Russell T Davies and Gareth Roberts.

The date and time in which this episode will broadcast is at the moment unknown but rumours suggest that it will be on either Easter Saturday or Easter Sunday. Planet of the Dead's first official trailer was apparently shown last weekend at the Six Nations rugby match and according to reports, it may also air on BBC One this weekend.
