10. Hide (2013)

“This is proper, scary Doctor Who, full of surprises and twists, and — unexpectedly — a rather gorgeous love story. Or two, maybe…” said Steven Moffatt in his Radio Times Doctor Who episode guide. “The fact is you can’t beat a haunted house, and in this show we’re delivering one of the very best.”

“Hide is quite a spooky episode, despite having such a happy ending,” says Scott Henry. “The creepy ghost-like image of the trapped pilot, and the grotesque crooked man living in the pocket universe, looking for his love. All of the wondering around in the dark and the creepy forest always had me on the edge of my seat.”
