Storyline

The Doctor and Donna are taking a bit of a break from their adventures and spending a bit of time on the planet Midnight. While Donna opts to spend a bit of time in the spa, the Doctor goes off on an all-day bus tour to the Sapphire Waterfall. Part way through the four hour journey to get there, the vehicle stops for no apparent reason. When they hear noise coming from outside the vehicle, panic begins to set in. When one of the passengers is taken over by the being, the passengers paranoia and fear know no bounds and the focus of their solution is to eliminate the Doctor. Written by garykmcd

A genuinely chilling tale from Russell T. Davies
15 June 2008 | by (England) – See all my reviews

"Midnight" is a tale where Russell T. Davies trumps the wonderful Steven Moffat in the scares department. This is a wonderfully creepy story set aboard the claustrophobic Crusader vessel. Reminiscent of Robert Wise's classic "The Haunting", the viewer is forced to the edge of their seat with the sheer tension of events as "something" starts to bang on the doors....

For me, the best episode of the season so far, "Midnight" is a real change of pace and style for Davies. Rather than celebrating mankind's spirit of adventure, Davies shows the more unpleasant side of human nature. This is genuinely unsettling material in many ways.

Lesley ("Afterlife") Sharp is terrifying as the possessed Alison Mundy. This is a top drawer performance and it's interesting that "monster of the year" may well be the one that remains hidden and, on the surface, human.

10 out of 10. A truly effective, mysterious episode that will remain in many viewers' minds for some time to come.
