Sleep No More

“Do not watch this,” implores Rassmussen. Oh, but we think that you’ll be very glad you did...

The DWM review

Starting out as a proper Doctor Who fan in the early 1980s – as opposed to a mere viewer, which I’d been since birth – I got stuck into the required reading. That being Peter Haining’s Doctor Who: A Celebration, published in 1983. Within, there was a reference to evil Tlotoxl from The Aztecs, which mentioned he ‘wins the day’. This set fire to my imagination, and for years I longed to see the striped-mouth blackguard at work. I could think of no more exciting a premise for a villain than one who actually gets away with it.

„I hope you’ve enjoyed the show.“

In the decades to come, I trust Gagan Rassmussen – whose unconventional eyewear is a satisfactory update of the high priest’s lipstick smear – will also enjoy such notoriety. That, for the few seconds and finger-strokes bit’ll take the new enthusiast to get Sleep No More streaming onto their device, the lusty prospect of a baddie victorious will fill their soul. He deserves that, at the very least. For his story (and it is) is the best instalment so far in this year’s run. No small compliment.
