Doctor Who continues with a brand new episode tonight with the premiere of “Night Terrors”, which can be seen in both the UK and US tonight on BBC One and BBC America! The episode is written by Mark Gatiss who previously wrote 'Victory of the Daleks', 'The Idiot's Lantern' and 'The Unquiet Dead'.
The Doctor receives a distress call from the scariest place in the Universe: a child's bedroom, as the time-travelling drama continues.

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.

  • Mark Gatiss told Radio Times that he had always been scared of dolls, and was surprised that Doctor Who had never used them before. He was especially interested in peg dolls, which he said were "the stuff of proper nightmares".
  • In order to achieve a greater variety of stories in the first half of series 6, "Night Terrors" was moved from the first half, having been planned to be shown fourth.
Night Terrors guest stars Daniel Mays as Alex, Jamie Oram as George, Emma Cunniffe as Claire, Andrew, Tiernan as Purcell, Leila Hoffman as Mrs Rossiter, and Sophie Cosson as Julie. Don't miss it at 7pm on BBC One and at 9/8c on BBC America, followed by Confidential at 7.50pm on BBC Three in the UK.
