NIGHT TERRORS
Written by Mark Gatiss, Episode 9 is directed by Richard Clark (The Doctor's Wife) and stars Daniel Mays. Gatiss promises that the story "some of the scariest moments he's ever dreamt up"; it's also his first modern day tale. Karen Gillan has also called this story, "highly disturbing"... Blogtor can confirm that this episode is an absolute beauty - very scary, very funny and very touching (with many references to Who mythology).

THE GIRL WHO WAITED
Episode 10 is written by Tom MacRae (the 2006 Cybermen two~parter) and features an unscheduled visit to a quarantine facility for victims of an alien plague – "a plague that will kill the Doctor in a day". The white robots spotted in the trailer and promo pics from this story are called "Handbots" and if they touch you, you got to sleep. Also featured are two Amy Ponds - one who is older due to being in a "faster time stream". Rory wears specs, fights the Handbots in a gallery and says, "So I have to choose, which wife do I want?"
