Our trio of time travelers find themselves in a very strange hotel. The Doctor quickly surmises that it's a replica of a 1980s British hotel and when they ring the bell at the check-in counter, they find themselves confronted by three others, none of whom know how they got there. They do not know that the others who were with have seemingly gone mad and are now dead. Those who remain describe the hotel as having no exits with corridors and walls that are forever changing. As well, each room is occupied by someone or something representing their greatest fear. To top things off, the TARDIS seems to have disappeared. Their encounter with a strange creature will have an impact on all of them and force the Doctor to reevaluate his relationship with Amy and Rory. Written by
