Night Terrors

From the historic depths of the Third Reich, the Doctor returns to our screens to visit an ordinary block of flats, where an ordinary boy named George is so scared that his cry for help reaches the TARDIS.
In my mind, the most frightening part of it all was when we WEREN'T seeing the monsters, because that meant they could be anywhere. Not to mention that uttely creepy rhyme.
Tick tock goes the clock
He cradled her and he rocked her
Tick tock goes the clock
Even for the Doctor…

Because this episode was originally meant to be part of 6A, which means it has no references to River Song/Melody. Even so, the rhyme has serious implications.

  1. Scariest for me was the turning into dolls, because it caught me completely off-guard. From the moment Amy turned, though, I knew it would end well. At least, I very seriously hoped.
    And, okay, the song creeped me out too. I was like, "THEY WERE SINGING THAT THE WHOLE TIME??!"
