Island of the Dead.

So the guy over at Nodwick posted a link to this article.  As far as I can tell, it's just hitting on the overly sensationalized stories about the island (It doesn't even mention Napoleon's usage of the island, which I found out by googling it).  However, my first thought is still 'That would make a totally awesome Doctor Who episode'.  Forget the Vampires of Venice, go for some ghosts!  That story about the mad doctor?  It was the Master.  Obviously, he wasn't torturing mentally ill patients (Not that he wouldn't, but I'm fairly sure he'd have better things to do with his time), but maybe something like the Keller Machine?  And the whole falling (not jumping, this is the Master after all.  Though he might have jumped to avoid something, I suppose, especially if he knew he would survive it) from the bell tower and being choked by the mist happened.  Not one of his better moments.  In fact, he really doesn't like to think about this island. 

Even without the Master though, this could make for a really wicked episode.  I don't know why.  I hate horror movies and scary things, but I kind of want to go to this island.  Probably not to stay the night, but just to have a day visit.  I think because it's not all touristy because being haunted is cool, but rather that it's blocked off to the public.  No one is allowed to go there, and that makes it a lot more mysterious.  It just has the potential for plot ideas.

Speaking of haunted things Who totally needs to do, what's up with no Winchester House episode?  I know it's more of an American thing and the lot across the pond don't always realize we've got cool stuff too, but seriously, it'd be awesome.  It doesn't even have to be the actual Winchester House, but some alien one that is similar and the Doctor can comment on it.  Though, the actual Winchester House would be quite epic. 

Obviously, Moffat needs to just hire me to write some of these things, because we need more epic in our lives.

Ooohhhh, Poveglia! I saw the episode of that on Ghost Adventures, and that place is SCARY AS HELL. The host even got possessed. D: (Yeah, I hate horror movies, but my guilty pleasure is watching paranormal televison. I love ghost stories.)

Yes, that would indeed make for an EPIC episode. A scary as hell episode, but also an epic one!

The Winchester House is the one with all the stairs that go to nowhere and doors that open to nothing, right? That's also prime Who material, that house.

It sounds like it. Kinda makes me want to go... I actually really hate horror movies and the like, but I'm very curious about this place. It's caaaaaaaaaalling to me. XD

Like I said, Who totally needs to do it. It would be awesome. XD

Yup, that's the house. The widow was obsessed with building, trying to keep out the ghosts of the people killed by the weapons her husband made. My mother and aunt went there once. I've always wanted to see it. I've seen the premise done in anime before, and when done well it's really freaky. Just the sort of thing the Doctor would want to visit. <3
