Matt Smith has revealed he gets frightened by The Silence on Doctor Who.
The Doctor Who star reckons the alien species are the “scariest” monsters on the TV series because they get into people’s minds.
“They are the best monsters since the Weeping Angels - they are certainly some of the scariest,” he said.
“What is wonderful is that they toy with your psyche. They mess with what you know and don’t know and what you can and can’t remember - they can influence your mind. They look horrendous and are really mean. So if you’re under the age of ten, a good sofa to hide behind is essential.
“That’s what Doctor Who should be about: ‘I don’t want to watch this, but also I do!’”
