Titles and Synopses Released for Doctor Who Series 11 Episodes 4, 5, and 6

Details of three further episodes of Doctor Who Series 11 have been revealed, including titles, synopses, and guest casts.
The Ghost Monument aired on BBC1 and BBC America yesterday (14th October 2018), and will be followed this coming Sunday with Rosa, an episode which focuses on civil rights activist, Rosa Parks (played by Vinette Robinson). But Series 11 has been clouded in mystery for a while now, so what’s in store for Jodie Whittaker’s Thirteenth Doctor?
Here are the synopses for Arachnids In The UK, The Tsuranga Conundrum, and Demons Of The Punjab
