“Knock, Knock is an excellent episode and one that cannot be missed, though if you’re watching it with children or with an easily scared father/mother than you may want to make sure they have no hot drinks in their hand during the forty-five minutes of airtime.”

“David Suchet is wonderful as the Landlord, always with a slightly sinister twinkle in his eye. Any time he and Peter Capaldi are pitted against each other, it's a delight.”

“… there’s some seriously good CGI in this episode. Swarms of bugs aside, Eliza’s wooden form is beautifully done. CGI team have earned their money with her rendering.”

“David Suchet playing the Landlord was brilliant casting. Just menacing enough as he mysteriously appeared without warning, smiling evilly in corners.”

“Seeing that one guy stuck, half-eaten in the wall was quite harrowing – while the reveal of the wooden lady at the end had some bite. Certainly the look of this episode added to the overall tone – creating a claustrophobic space for the audience to get scared in.”
