After eight weeks of two-part episodes, Doctor Who has finally reached our first stand alone of the season. “Sleep No More” is no ordinary stand alone episode though. As the show has boasted, this week’s “found footage” style horror episode is something the production wouldn’t have been able to pull off in the old days, or even when the show first rebooted.
I keep wanting to ask who has murdered sleep? But I think we’re going to find out…
The official synopsis gives us very little to go on either.
This terrifying story is assembled from footage discovered in the wreckage of Le Verrier Space Station.
And for those who are wondering, the main guest star is Reece Shearsmith, with whom episode writer Mark Gatiss started his career back in the 90s.
