Quotes

[first lines]
Rassmussen: You must not watch this. I'm warning you, you can never un-see it. But if you do watch... Gagan Rassmussen. I'm Gagan Rassmussen, this is Le Verrier Lab in orbit around Neptune. I've put things together into some kind of order so that you can, um, understand. So that you can have some idea. There are bits missing, sorry about that. I don't fully understand what's been going on here... but, uh, this is what happened.

Crazy Credits

Instead of the usual opening credits, an acrostic appears at the end of Rassmussen's opening monologue with vertical letters forming "DOCTOR WHO" highlighted. The acrostic consists of the various characters' names and some sort of ID code. Among the visible names are: GAGAN RASMUSSEN 39900076, 474 T000, OSAMU CHOPRA 8889234, DAIKI NAGATA HJSSLL 56890, DEEP-ANDO 633389. The station's name is visible ("LE VERRIER-H999267") and so is "CLARA OSWALD" - the latter with no extra numbers. There are at least two codes with no names attached: "00002458888C" and "03326755".

Possibly the best episode ever....
14 November 2015 | by callumtrevittSee all my reviews

Wow.. What an episode! I am so impressed with how Mark Gatiss has evolved his writing. It appears Mark has finally found his perfect setting (the future). A lot of his previous efforts have maybe been a hit-and-miss (with the exception of 'Cold War' and 'The Crimson Horror'). However - 'Sleep No More' completely shatters that pattern, Mark has really delivered something unique and fantastic in an episode that will not be forgotten. I was not a fan of the removal of the title sequence, but I appreciate the context (being found footage). The design of the space station was bloody fantastic, the chase scenes were also brilliant. I thought that 'The Sandman' people were excellent and

by far the best monsters of the series. I am just so impressed by this episode - it has to be my favourite of the series.. or even my favourite ever!! Thank you Mark Gatiss!!

9.6/10
