The BBC has released details for the ninth episode of Series 6, Night Terrors, written by Mark Gatiss.
“The Doctor receives a distress call from the scariest place in the Universe: a child’s bedroom. Every night George lies awake, terrorised by every fear you can possibly imagine – fears that live in his bedroom cupboard. His parents are getting desperate – George needs a doctor. Fortunately for George, his desperate pleas for help break through the barriers of all time and space and the Doctor makes a house call. But allaying his fears won’t be easy; because George’s monsters are real.”
Gatiss has previously written The Unquiet Dead, The Idiot’s Lantern, and last year’s Victory of the Daleks, which introduced us to the controversial new paradigm, and appeared as Lazarus in 2007’s The Lazarus Experiment.
Night Terrors, which follows the (sort of) half- season premiere, Let’s Kill Hitler, is set to broadcast on 3rd September and features Daniel Mays (who you may know as Keats in Ashes to Ashes) and some very creepy dolls!
We’ll bring you a full preview of the episode next week, just as soon as we’ve finished off Hitler…
