Planet of Origin:
Menacing, macabre versions of peg dolls with broad, blank faces.
Start to worry when:
They say something like, 'Don't run away. We just want to play!'
Not terribly fast or nimble and hampered by a psychic reliance on George.
The Peg Dolls inhabited the doll's house in George's cupboard. But as the Doctor explained, it had become a psychic repository for all his fears which meant these were no ordinary dolls. They could move, speak and hunt!
When Rory and Amy became trapped in the house, they stumbled across the dolls and at first believed they were harmless. But after the ghastly Purcell was captured by the dummy-like creatures, they witnessed the horrifying transformation they force their victims to endure...
It begins with the hands... Fingers stiffen and apparently turn to wood. And then the process spreads until the victim of the dolls has become like them. The Doctor called their state a ‘living death' but George was able to rescue Purcell and the other captured humans. When Alex's unconditional love allowed the youngster to overcome his fears, the Peg Dolls were expelled from the house and reverted to their original form.
