For three seasons, Peter Capaldi played the twelfth Doctor in the cult sci-fi series “Doctor Who“. In the cinema we last saw the Brit as the super villain Gaius Grieves aka The Thinker in DC’s “The Suicide Squad“. In his new series, Capaldi now seems to combine characteristics of both roles and thus create a time-travelling villain. Or is he really the hero of the series? The cleverly edited trailer for “The Devil’s Hour” allows both conclusions.
“The Devil’s Hour” starts on October 28, 2022 worldwide and exclusively on the streaming service Amazon Prime Video.

The first season consists of six episodes directed by Johnny Allan (“Baker Street Gang”) and Isabelle Sieb (“Virgil”, “Murder on Shetland”). The inventor, screenwriter and producer of the whole thing is Tom Moran. Most recently, he wrote scripts for the series The Feed and Wild Bill. Steven Moffat, one of the most successful British TV producers of recent decades, acts as executive producer. Hits like “Sherlock”, “Coupling”, “Dracula” and the “Doctor Who”-Revival.
Co-starring alongside Peter Capaldi is Jessica Raine from Call The Midwife, Fortitude and Patrick Melrose. Also involved in “The Devil’s Hour”: Nikesh Patel (“Artemis Fowl”), who is currently in “Star Wars: Andor” starring Alex Ferns, Phil Dunster from “Ted Lasso’, Meera Syal (‘Broadchurch’) and Barbara Marten (‘A Discovery Of Witches’).
Peter Capaldi plays a reclusive man named Gideon. Due to his all-too-obvious interest in various unsolved murder cases, he becomes a suspect to the police and is taken into custody. During an interrogation, Gideon suddenly explains to Detective Lucy Chambers (Jessica Raine) how their very personal dreams and memories are connected.
Apparently intimidated by his intense nature, Chambers wonders how he knows she wakes up at exactly 3:33 a.m. nightmares. Finally, she is certain that she has never spoken to Gideon before. Soon after, she has strange visions and bizarre things happen that she can’t figure out. Gideon claims to be a time traveler. He wants to help Lucy find the answers she was looking for in vain. Or is it all just the sick game of a psychopathic serial killer?
