“Nobody mention Frankenstein. Nobody interfere. Nobody snog Byron.”

Should be easy right?

The eighth and final episode before the dramatic two part finale for Series 12 airs tonight at 7:10 pm on BBC One and 8/7c on BBC America.  Tonight the Doctor meets the famous Mary Shelley (Lili Miller) and Lord Bryon (Jacob Collins-Levy) and some ghosts.

Ghosts aren’t real, are they?

Synopsis: The Haunting Of Villa Diodati.

The Doctor and gang arrive at the Villa Diodati, Lake Geneva, in 1816 – on a night that inspired Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. The plan is to spend the evening soaking up the atmosphere in the presence of some literary greats – but the ghosts are all too real. And the Doctor is forced into a decision of earth-shattering proportions…

Written by Maxine Alderton, directed by Emma Sullivan.
