Doctors: S21E171 – Merry Frightmas
Thursday 17 December 2020
BBC One: 13:45

  • Produced by Simon J Curtis
  • Written by Henrietta Hardy
  • Directed by David Lewis Richardson

Al takes Jimmi, Emma and Valerie on a spooky Christmas outing where they end up confronting some of their own personal demons.

As an alternative Christmas gift, Al has organised a visit to an old disused building which his friend Jonathan Bateson has turned into a ‘grown-up haunted house’ for a ‘Merry Frightmas’ experience. He is joined by Valerie, Emma and Jimmi.

Slowly but surely, all four of the guests start to realise that this isn’t just any haunted house: it’s designed specifically to trigger their own personal trauma.
