A frog convinces the worst dad in Norway to reenact the plot of The Village in an emotionally complex story with a lot of retro-rewrite potential
Expectorated by the TARDIS into a frilly bit atop Norway, The Thirteenth Doctor and her fellow desolation ambulance chasers come upon a teenage girl holed up in a solitary cabin, hiding from strange monsters roaming outside every night. Her dad’s been missing for the past few days, the monster’s approaching again, and there’s something very strange going on with one of the mirrors upstairs.
The mirror, they soon learn, doubles as a gateway into an Anti-Zone between universes, where a guy who presumably has an interesting backstory makes a cameo appearance, and where carnivorous flesh moths flap around in horrifically homicidal droves. Where’s that monster at, though, eh? What’s at the other end of the Anti-Zone? And can someone please call child protection services?! Emotional sci-fi drama ensues.
