A seemingly haunted house, a Metabilis-3 crystal and creepy Cronenbergs all add to the ambiance

Scotland, 1974, and the wind blows high and the wind blows low. Professor Alec Palmer is trying to rebuild himself as a gentleman after being harrowed for king and country, maintaining a respectful distance from his willing assistant Emma Grayling as they investigate paranormal goings-on at his remote mansion.

Will she as an empath and he as a professor of psychology never intuit each other’s repressed feelings and progress to going bump in the night? Enter Doc and Clara, ghost-hunting health and safety pals from the Ministry, to make this match while finding the Witch of the Well without a well who probably isn’t a witch.

Thumps, cold spots, and clammy handshakes ensue as the Spam-supplied spirit leads them a scary dance, and The Doctor proves he’ll go to the ends of the earth just to solve a mystery. But exactly who will be bumping uglies and playing hide the sausage once they’ve got to the shapely bottom of all this?

Here's what we think of N098 Hide

We rate Doctor Who stories on a scale from 0.0 to 5.0. For context, very few are excellent enough to merit a 5.0 in our minds, and we'd take a 0.0 Doctor Who story over a lot of other, non-Whovian stuff out there.
