For Doctor Who 909 we see writer Mark Gatiss adapting the story telling style of the famous 1999’s The Blair Witch Project to science-fiction.
The Blair Witch Project: “Found video footage tells the tale of three film students who’ve traveled to a small town to collect documentary footage about the Blair Witch, a legendary local murderer.”
Obviously a concept that is great on a limited budget is great for the producers and was of course also reused in the no-budget horror movie Paranormal Activity.
Actor, comedian and award winning writer Reece Shearsmith joins Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman in a guest role in the episode. He is known for his work as part of The League Of Gentlemen, along with fellow performers Steve Pemberton, Mark Gatiss (who wrote this episode) and co-writer Jeremy Dyson.
This episode is 45 minutes long (not including ad breaks), episode 9 of 12 this season.
