The second half of Doctor Who’s current series continues next weekend with ‘Night Terrors’, as 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.
Written by Mark Gatiss, ‘Night Terrors’ airs at 7pm on Saturday 3rd September on BBC One. In the meantime, here are some teasing lines of dialogue from the episode…
» “Please save me from the monsters.”
» “Planets, history and stuff – that’s what we do!”
» “Maybe we should let the monsters gobble him up?”
» “The TARDIS has gone funny again, some time-slippy thing.”
» “When I was your age – ooh, about 1,000 years ago – I loved a bedtime story.”
» “I’m not as daft as I look. In fact, I’m not daft at all.”
» “Off the scale… off the scale… off the scale…”
» “Bergerac? God help us!”
» “You see these eyes, they’re old eyes.”
» “What is it with these photos?”
