There’s plenty to watch this month if you’re looking for chills and scares – Amazon Prime have a few unnerving thrillers up their sleeve, including the new Steven Moffat produced show The Devil’s Hour, starring Call The Midwife’s Jessica Raine and Doctor Who’s Peter Capaldi.

The series centres on Lucy Chambers (Raine), a woman who finds herself waking up every night at exactly 3:33 am, after experiencing terrifying visions each time – and between 3am to 4am is sometimes dubbed “the devil’s hour”, when supernatural or otherwise unexplainable phenomena occur. Her young son has also become cold and distant, and her mother talks to inanimate objects. She finds herself becoming linked with a murder case and a suspected nomadic serial killer (Capaldi), who seems to know an awful lot about her and her dreams. Further, much like Capaldi’s best-known role as The Doctor, the killer seems to be able to influence time – in his words both a time traveller and a fortune teller.

The show also features Starstruck’s Nikesh Patel, who plays the lead detective in the manhunt for Capaldi’s character Gideon, in addition to Meera Syal, Alex Ferns, Phil Dunster and Barbara Marten. Moffat, best known for his work on Sherlock and Doctor Who, produces the six part series, which was created by Tom Moran. Commenting on his performance and the show as a whole, Capaldi said: “The nature of the piece is spectacularly dark and has been enjoyable to play. He is a character that has fallen through the cracks and is responsible for some serious crimes. But he is not what he appears. He belongs to the night.” It’s certainly shaping up to be a mysterious ride.

The Devil’s Hour debuts just before Halloween on 28th October, with all six episodes releasing together for you to binge through the entire twisting story. You can watch the mysterious trailer for the show above, which certainly poses more questions than it answers.
