Doctor Who confidential name Edit

The Doctor Who confidential episode name is About A Boy. Can someone please add this. Alpha111 11:34, September 1, 2011 (UTC)

See About a Boy.--Skittles the hog - talk 08:52, September 4, 2011 (UTC)

Setting Edit

Might just have missed this, but how did we get the setting as 2010? Aliyoda 00:36, September 4, 2011 (UTC)

Because when the Doctor asks how old George is, he said he's eight. The Doctor said he was bron in 2002. So that makes the year date 2010. BroadcastCorp (talk | contribs) 06:56, September 4, 2011 (UTC)
No; he was born in January 2003; the Doctor points out a photo from Christmas '02 to make the point that his mother wasn't pregnant a month before he was born. 2011. Raven's wing 07:54, September 4, 2011 (UTC)
He was born in 2003, and Alex says that "he's 8 in January", which clearly means he's yet to turn 8. -- Tybort (talk page) 15:59, September 4, 2011 (UTC)
About halfway through the episode (around the 26-minute mark), his father says he "just turned eight". d 18:32, September 4, 2011 (UTC)
He was eight in January. This episode takes place in 2011. MM/Want to talk? 18:34, September 4, 2011 (UTC)
Actually, you might want to put this in the errors section, because I'm sure I heard both: he will be eight in January and later on turned eight in January. Of course, you could also mention that it's possible that the Perception Filter is playing with his mind. 86.152.230.201 19:38, September 4, 2011 (UTC)
He says "He's 8 in January" early on, then "He just turned 8." It's possible that in the first case he intended it to come out more like "He's eight. In January." (note the grammatical difference) However, the second is explicitly clear that he is already eight years old. d 19:41, September 4, 2011 (UTC)

Main image Edit

I don't like the main image Skittles wanted. It doesn't really describe the episode. It's called "Night Terrors", which mean a night terror. Overcoming your feels doesn't really describe the episode. Mine does, it shows a man turned into a doll in front of Amy and Rory. So I'm taking the image down until we have an agreement. Here are the images: BroadcastCorp (talk | contribs) 09:12, September 4, 2011 (UTC)

No the whole point of the episode is about George facing and confronting his fears, not people being turned into Dolls. I'm readding Skittle's image since there is no point to his discussion. MM/Want to talk? 16:32, September 4, 2011 (UTC)
I agree with Mini-mitch. An image with more dolls are George and him being overcome would be even better here. D0ct0r11  16:34: Sun 9 Sep 2011
Agreed. Also, ultimately, the episode is all about George, and Skittles' image shows that as well. d 18:35, September 4, 2011 (UTC)

"In the flesh" Edit

At the end of the episode, the Doctor says, "It's good to be all back together again… in the flesh." Given the importance of the Flesh in this series, mention of this line should probably be filed somewhere on the main page for Night Terrors as part of the series focus on the Flesh.

  • Honestly, it just sounds like he's referring to Amy not being a Peg Doll anymore. d 19:59, September 4, 2011 (UTC)
  • I agree he might be referring to being not peg dolls (sorry but I can't put it simpler :() 81.102.113.192 09:33, September 5, 2011 (UTC) Me

Well, the episode was originally placed earlier in the series, when Amy was still supposed to be a Ganger, so this could be something the production team overlooked while editing the ep for its current position. Really though, it's probably nothing. Styracosaurus Rider (Speak to the Rider, your Lord and Master) {Look upon my servants} 00:45, September 14, 2011 (UTC)

Words to the song? Edit

Tick-tock
Goes the clock
Even for the Doctor


I know there are words before that, I just can't understand them. Anyone else had any luck?

Lighting/continuity Edit

Is it me, or is there a lighting/continuity problem the first time that the Doctor is in George's bedroom?


As far as I could see, when the Doctor stands up, you can see his shadow in the centre of the wardrobe. Next scene it's to the left of the wardrobe, then centre again, then to the right of the wardrobe. Simple production error? 89.100.116.208 01:53, September 7, 2011 (UTC)

Madame KovarianEdit

The Story Notes section states, "A scene with Madame Kovarian was removed, and the ending with the data file from Let's Kill Hitler was added." Where's the source for this? If we're going to note removed scenes, then there was a scene filmed with Amy looking at a photo, presumed to be a sonogram, outside the block of flats, yet that never turned up in the episode.

Children's Stories - "made up?" Probably Not. Edit

The wiki states in one part that the children's stories the Doctor rattles off are stories from Gallifrey, yet in another section says "it's clear he's simply making up the titles." I'm inclined to believe the former, and it's anything but clear that he's making up the titles. It sounded like he was recalling stories from his own childhood, or maybe the stories he told his own son. Anyway, removing that line until someone offers proof that he's "clearly" making up the titles on the spot. Synthetique 18:08, September 18, 2011 (UTC)

Fallout 3 Edit

In this episode, the growling soundclips used for Purcell's dog are the same ones used for Dogmeat in Fallout 3

Image Edit

Would it be possible to add this picture to the page?The preceding unsigned comment was added by BigCatFan (talk • contribs) .

The short answer is no. Screenshots must be .jpg, not .png. See Tardis:Image use policy and T:ICC for details. Shambala108 20:28, November 16, 2013 (UTC)
File:Amy Peg Doll Transformation (2).jpeg

Changed it to jpeg, how is it nowThe preceding unsigned comment was added by BigCatFan (talk • contribs) .

Now it's no longer widescreen and seems stretched. We also don't generally want wordmarks in our images. In addition to the pages Shambala gave you, you might also want to check out Tardis:Guide to images.

Psychic Paper Production Error Edit

It may be perspective, or it may be a small production error, but it seems like the Doctor doesn't open the psychic-paper-wallet before declaring the message on the psychic paper. Did anyone else see this or was it just me? 90.208.43.110talk to me 20:01, April 27, 2014 (UTC)
