Storyline

Our trio of time travelers find themselves in a very strange hotel. The Doctor quickly surmises that it's a replica of a 1980s British hotel and when they ring the bell at the check-in counter, they find themselves confronted by three others, none of whom know how they got there. They do not know that the others who were with have seemingly gone mad and are now dead. Those who remain describe the hotel as having no exits with corridors and walls that are forever changing. As well, each room is occupied by someone or something representing their greatest fear. To top things off, the TARDIS seems to have disappeared. Their encounter with a strange creature will have an impact on all of them and force the Doctor to reevaluate his relationship with Amy and Rory. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

Toby Whithouse was more pleased with "The God Complex" than "School Reunion" and "The Vampires of Venice", his previous Doctor Who scripts, as the tone was darker which he was "more comfortable" writing. See more »

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. See more »

Quotes

Lucy Hayward: [Prologue] My name is Lucy Hayward. And I'm the last one left. It's funny. You don't know what's going to be in your room until you see it. Then you realize it could never have been anything else. The gaps between my worship are getting shorter. This is what happened to the others. It's all so clear now. I'm so happy. Praise him. Praise him.
