Episode 8: Let’s Kill Hitler
Writer: Steven Moffat
Director: Richard Senior
Guest star: Caitlin Blackwood

Amy and Rory have waited a long time for news of their daughter. Too long. But when they summon the Doctor, the consequence will change all their lives. The Tardis crashes into Berlin in the 1930s and they find themselves face to face not only with Hitler, but with a unique assassin from the distant future – and that’s only the beginning. In the Führer’s office, at the heart the Third Reich, the Doctor is in for one the biggest shocks of his very long life…

Episode 9: Night Terrors
Writer: Mark Gatiss
Director: Richard Clark
Guest stars: Emma Cunniffe, Daniel Mays

Horror in Doctor Who comes in many forms and many places, and a cry of distress reaches the Tardis from the darkest and scariest place in the universe. But where is that exactly? This story began with Mark Gatiss and me chatting on the set of Sherlock. “I’d like to do scary,” he said. ‘Do you know where the scariest place in the universe is?’ I’ve known Mark for a while. If he’s decided to tell me where the scariest place in the universe is, I’d better listen. “Where?” I quavered from behind my rapid-deployment Doctor Who fear sofa. “A child’s bedroom” he answered.

Parents of Britain – sorry, and good luck!

Episode 10: The Girl Who Waited
Writer: Tom MacRae
Director: Nick Hurran

Time travel is more than just an element of Doctor Who – it’s one of the main characters. I’m going to boast now and say that Tom MacRae’s stylish and moving script is one of the best uses of time travel in any story anywhere – mind-blowing and heart-breaking in every twist and turn. The Doctor has been in Amy and Rory’s life for a long while now – far longer than he ever intended. What if something were to go wrong?

When they step from the Tardis into a strange white waiting room, they’re all about to learn just how wrong time travel can go…
