Relive that mind-bending Doctor Who reveal

(No, not that one – the other one!)

Just Who is Jo Martin’s “Ruth, Fugitive of the Judoon,” to the Doctor?

This weekend’s Doctor Who was certainly a trip! Not only did those mercenary rhinoceros space police, the Judoon, put in a return appearance, but Torchwood’s Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman) returned with a dire warning for the Doctor — but she was busy elsewhere, trying to save a woman named Ruth (Jo Martin).

And that, literally, wasn’t even the half of it!
