Peter Capaldi’s new show is most of alike Which doctor? – except, if the 12th Doctor’s relationship with time travel is more theoretical and bleak, and if the Doctor is a serial killer.
Is called Devil’s Hourshow starring Jessica Raine (Become Elizabeth) as Lucy, a detective haunted by nightmares who finds herself trapped in the web of serial killer Gideon (Peter Capaldi). It’s unclear if the time travel is actually happening or just psychological, but it sure looks intense.
Devil’s Hour also stars Nikesh Patel, who, in addition to starring in Hulu’s Four weddings and funerals, also appeared on a single Which doctor? episode (with Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor, not Capaldi’s, though). And to tie a bow around the whole evil, perennial Doctor Who comparison Which doctor? showrunner Steven Moffat is the executive producer of Devil’s Hour.
Devil’s Hour will be six episodes long and premiere on Amazon Prime on October 28.
