Synopsis – Series 11 Episode Nine It Takes You Away

What has happened here?

What monster lurks in the woods around the cottage – and beyond?

    Norwegian Fjord, was the Norwegian Warship attacked by Aliens?

    I like that more episodes are on a smaller scale at the moment. There doesn’t need to be something threatening the world or the universe every few episodes.

    That being said, I do want to see just one this series. Clearly it’s not going to be this one, but it could be episode 10. Or, if not that, I guess the special episode is a possibility as The Moffat Paradox said. Personally, I think that’ll be a good episode to bring back the Daleks for. I understand why they’re not using the old monsters and villains, but I’m itching to see Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor face one!

    Anything on a grand scale might be on the rumoured New Years instead of Christmas day special but I wouldn’t hold my breath until we maybe see any pointers to that at the end of episode 10 and any further details/revelations that come out regardless.

    Another earth bound story, probably another monster with not much money spent it, only good thing is that the stories themselves are holding the series together. When are we going to see something on a grand scale.

    Brilliant title. Unfortunately the plot seems reminiscent of every second low budget horror movie made since 1982. I really hope Chibnal has something out of left field lined up.

    I bet you Hanne is the real monster here-there is a theme in this series that things are not what they seem-the P’ting wasn’t a terrible creature it was just hungry, the Demons of the punjab weren’t assassins, so my moneys on Hanne being boarded up in a house and “it takes you away ” is an intergalatic copper come to arrest her!

    Some sort of mythical creature from norwegian folklore then. Rather like the film’ Trollhunter’?
