Details of the eleventh episode of Doctor Whoâ€™s sixth series have started surfacing and by the looks of things, itâ€™s going to be a cracker!
Written by Toby Whithouse (who was responsible for 2006â€™s School Reunion and 2010â€™s The Vampires of Venice), the episode, entitled The God Complex, finds the Doctor and his friends:
â€œTrapped in a hotel where the geography keeps shifting â€“ and is full of ventriloquistsâ€™ dummies and balloonsâ€¦ Itâ€™s set entirely in one location and will be one of the more nightmarish episodes.â€
This is the plot according to SFX.com. This story was originally meant to be scheduled for the 2010 series of Doctor Who but got pushed back in favour of The Vampires of Venice instead.
Featuring in this episode will be comedian David Walliams, who is no stranger to the world of Doctor Who. Not only has appeared in a comedy sketch as an â€œevilâ€ alien battling against Mark Gatissâ€™ version of the Doctor for 1999â€™s Doctor Who night, he has also been in several Doctor Who Big Finish plays including Phantasmagoria (written by Mark Gatiss) and The Mutant Phase.
Whitehouseâ€™s new episode looks set to be a corker but can it top the scripts heâ€™s provided in the previous years? If the new Doctor Who production team has anything to do with it, the answer is probably yes!
Doctor Who returns to BBC One this Easter, The God Complex will be shown in the second half of the 2011 run.
