The Doctor and Clara arrive at an old manor house in 1974 where Alec Palmer and Emma Grayling are investigating the existence of a ghost. Alec is a former army Major, now a psychologist, whilst Emma is an empathic psychic who can not only sense the presence of paranormal beings, but can sense their feelings as well. Palmer explains the house has been haunted for hundreds of years, and the ghost - a woman - is likely much older. Emma senses the ghost is very lonely, but the Doctor realises she's not a ghost at all, but a creature trapped in a zone where time moves much faster there than it does here. The good Doctor gets to play Cupid. Written by garykmcd

The Doctor is taking pictures of the spinning disk-thing, Clara is standing there holding a candelabra with three candles, and Emma is staring through the doorway behind them as images of the pocket-universe start showing. Clara finally sees what Emma is looking at, and when she says, "Doctor!" there are only two candles in the candelabra. When Emma faints and we see Clara again, the missing candle is back.

A well-rounded episode with chills-a-plenty, but a dodgy resolution once again...
20 April 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Continuing in the patter of Series 7 episodes, "Hide" is an enjoyable episode, blessed with the finest FX effects yet, lots of money, great musical scores, and well-regarded supporting actors. However, the truth is, it's just adequate. It's fine telly, great for one-off viewing, but nothing like the weightier, superior adventures from the RTD era of the show. Matt Smith is good, though there's no real development in terms of his doctor's character. The supporting cast are once again, excellent, but don't have all that much to do. Clara is the star, however, he relationship with the doctor is the finest we've had since Donna. It's a spooky episode, genuinely creepy at times, a testament to Neil Cross and the director, Jamie Payne. However, the resolution is all too rushed (a curse that has followed new Doctor Who since 2005), and it would have benefited greatly from more time to develop. In short, it's one of the more enjoyable episodes of Series 7, but it's really nothing special, and et down from yet another rushed resolution.

But I liked the creepy. Long live the creepy.
