New The God Complex Story Details
Episode 11, The God Complex, is previewed in the latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine, and there are some new plot details.
The Doctor, Amy and Rory are on their way to Ravan-Skala. Legend has it that the people there are 600-feet tall. But then the TARDIS is yanked off course and drops them off in an ordinary – albeit deserted – hotel instead. “How can you be excited about a rubbish hotel on a rubbish bit of Earth?”asks Amy. But this hotel isn’t as ordinary or as empty as it first appears…
There’s a room packed with party balloons. In another, a gorilla uses the en suite bathroom. There are clowns. And Weeping Angels. All manner of nightmares stalk the corridors. And it isn’t even a hotel. It’s just been made to look like one. But who would mock-up an Earth hotel? “You’re going to die here,” the guests are told. “Well, they certainly didn’t mention that in the brochure,” replies the Doctor.
THE DOCTOR: “You’ve been here two days. What’s ‘He’ waiting for?”
JOE: “We weren’t ready. We were still raw.”
THE DOCTOR: “But now you’re what? Cooked?”
JOE: “If you like. And soon you will be, too. Be patient. First, find your room.”
THE DOCTOR: “My room?”
JOE: “There’s a room here for everyone, Doctor. Even you. And in it is the very worst thing in the galaxy.”
