    The scariest scare for me is companions leaving.

    One of the most frightening episodes from the current series has to be “Blink.” I shown this episode to my students on Halloween then give them an extra-credit writing assignment where they analyze the use of fear in this episode. Most students discuss how fast the angels are, but none have yet to discuss the idea that an angel could be a monster makes this so scary. Anyway, the subsequent Weeping Angels episodes have not been as frightening, so I think that, unlike the Daleks or Cybermen, these are not creatures the Doctor needs to keep fighting. The scare level of the Angels reached its peak, for me anyway, in “Blink.”

    I found that moment when the Clockwork Droid burst out from under Reinette’s bed in “The Girl in the Fireplace” quite scary.

    But Torchwood’s scare factor was MUCH worse for me. That couldn’t hold a feather to how freaked out I was when Death attacked Jack Harkness in “Dead Man Walking”. I got chills.

    Midnight is very, very creepy.

      Yes Rick, “Midnight” is also a very frightening episode. It’s also interesting to see how a small group of strangers react and interact in such a frightening situation.
