‘Nobody mention Frankenstein. Nobody interfere. Nobody snog Byron.’ Should be easy right? The Doctor and gang arrive at the Villa Diodati, Lake Geneva in 1816 on the night that inspired Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. The plan is to spend the evening soaking up the atmos in the presence of some literary greats – but the ghosts are all too real. And the Doctor is forced into a decision of earth-shattering proportions...

How about writing the most gruesome, spine-chilling ghost story of all time?
