The Doctor, Amy and Rory investigate a hotel of horror where repeat business is low but the body count is high, where a mighty monster stalks the corridors and the rooms hold visions of angels, apes and creepy clowns. Who — or what — has brought them to this place? Can the Doctor solve the mystery before the residents check out in grisly style?

original airdate--September 17,2011  rating--6.77 million 

 

Main enemy: The Minotaur      

Main setting:  Prison ship

Goofs: Digital effects are used to extend the street the Doctor leaves Amy and Rory on, but the real brick wall that forms the dead end is still visible over Rory's shoulder in one shot.

  • In the beginning of the episode, as Lucy Hayward is moving down the hotel corridor she opens three doors. Two of them have the number 214.

Trivia: Amy's room number was 7, a reference to her age when she first met the Doctor.

  • The Doctor's room number was 11, a reference to the fact that Matt Smith is the Eleventh Doctor and that this story is the eleventh of the 2011 series. A similar "11' reference occurred in the eleventh episode of series 5.
