Welcome to Your Daily Nerd Thing where every weekday we bring you a different nerdy thing we found on the internet. It’s October so Halloween will be here soon. So this month we will have a special theme for each week. To start things this week’s theme is scary episodes of Doctor Who. Doctor Who is a science fiction adventure show but it knows how be pretty horrifying when it wants to be. We will be counting down five of the most scary/creepy/horror filled episodes and/or creatures from Doctor Who. And just to be clear we will be covering so called Nu Who and not Classic Who because that will make things go much more quickly.
We’ll start with one of the most obvious choices The Empty Child. This was an episode from the first series with Chris Eccleston as the Ninth Doctor.
The Empty Child was unlike any threat the show had presented so far. It was not some alien invader. And yet it continues to creep people out in a way many other Doctor Who monsters can only dream about.
The whole story consists of two episodes The Empty Child and The Doctor Dances.
