Bad Night was the first of five exclusive-to-home-video shorts under the Night and the Doctor umbrella title. It was written by showrunner Steven Moffat.

Synopsis

When Amy is woken in the middle of the night by the TARDIS telephone, she learns the Doctor carries on a very active social and adventuring life while his companions sleep. She tries to piece together how the fate of the Commonwealth could possibly be affected by the Doctor, an unseen River Song, an unnamed Prince of Wales and a British Queen who has been turned into a goldfish. To the Doctor's horror, she has killed a Warrior Chief in the form of a fly while he was out. She tries to stop the Doctor to have a serious conversation. However, he calls for Rory as it's "his turn" to handle her emotions. Amy begins to tell Rory off for this, but the Doctor's horrified scream stops her - he's got the wrong goldfish. He's got three hours before the pet shops open now to find the Queen with River.

Production errors

If you'd like to talk about narrative problems with this story — like plot holes and things that seem to contradict other stories — please go to this episode's discontinuity discussion.
  • When the TARDIS phone rings, no one is standing at the TARDIS console. When it cuts to Amy answering the phone, she is standing in a position that was vacant in the previous shot.
  • The water level of the goldfish bowl varies from shot to shot. Its lowest level is the close-angle shot of the bowl as the Doctor addresses the goldfish.
