Doctor Who writer Toby Whithouse has teased details on The God Complex, episode 11 of Series 6.

He revealed the basic plot premise in the latest Doctor Who Magazine: “The Doctor and Amy are trapped in a hotel and the geography keeps shifting.”

They enter nightmares through the hotel rooms: “What is this place? Why is it full of ventriloquists’ dummies and balloons and things?”

“Some of the nightmares are strange, others more universal, but they’re kind of emblematic in that they’re about failure, or defeat or loss.”

Whithouse also says the episode is set entirely in the hotel and that this story is tonally darker than his previous two – The Vampires of Venice and School Reunion. Interesting then, that comedian David Walliams is the main guest star.
