The Doctor makes a house call…

Today’s Episode: Night Terrors

Writer: Mark Gatiss

Now, I might have been wrong about yesterday’s assumption about today’s episode. It really wasn’t that bad and kinda scary. There were only two real cool things.. such as this line from the Doctor to Alex, the boy’s father,  about how George managed to communicate to him via psyphic paper across time and space..

Through crimson stars and silent stars and tumbling nebulas like oceans set on fire, through empires of glass and civilizations of pure thought and a whole terrible wonderful universe of impossibilities. You see these eyes? They’re old eyes. And one thing I can tell you, Alex – monsters are real.

Also, this episode was supposed to be aired in the first half, but Moffat deemed the first half to be already too dark, thus tacking this onto the second half instead.

I adore the Tic-Tock Song.. the only thing that ties this episode into this season’s story arc, as Gatiss put the whole thing up on his twitter account for everyone to see… 

Tick tock goes the clock
And what then shall we see?
Tick tock until the day
That thou shalt marry me
Tick tock goes the clock
And what now shall we play?
Tick tock goes the clock
Now Summer’s gone away?
Tick tock goes the clock
And all the years they fly
Tick tock and all too soon
You and I must die
Tick tock goes the clock
He cradled her and he rocked her
Tick tock goes the clock
Even for the Doctor…

Moffat asked Gatiss to write this spooky song, just telling him to write a nice little rhyme about the Doctor’s death with zero details about how he will die, thus we got this little dity.

Thus till tomorrow, where we find out more info about why Amy is the “Girl Who Waited”!
