He makes you fight. Creeps into your head. And whispers.
~ The Midnight Entity subtly gloating about its methods.

The Midnight Entity is the main antagonist of the Doctor Who episode "Midnight". It was an unknown life form with an unknown origin that resided on the surface of the planet Midnight.

It was portrayed by Lesley Sharp while possessing Sky Silvestry.

Appearance

Its true form is never shown. According to Claude when he saw it, The Entity was a shadow just for a second, but when he saw it again, it was dark and shifting and could run.

Powers and Abilities

The Midnight entity was capable of surviving on the planet Midnight, despite the fact that the X-tonic rays should have killed any being on the surface, suggesting it was probably a consciousness alone with high telepathic powers. It was capable of shaking a Crusader 50 bus, causing dents in its walls and ripping off the cockpit, feats which would require great strength. The entity was not very big, as a shadow seen by mechanic Claude did not attract the attention of the Tenth Doctor, but when it began running towards the bus, it had grown in size. The entity indicated potential cold-bloodedness and potential sanguivorism, as the possessed Sky remarked on the cold of Midnight's surface and the warm blood of human bodies.

The Midnight entity could also possess a human. It would start to copy what the people around it said, then speak at the same time and predict what people would say. The Doctor believed it was trying to learn about its surroundings. The being seemed to be able to learn at an incredibly rapid pace and absorbed the passengers' speech without forgetting, hesitating, or making a single mistake. As the inhabitants of the ship turned on the Doctor, the entity singled him out as a target. It then paralysed him and forced him to copy the entity's speech, "stealing his voice". It also mimicked his mannerisms, such as his use of Italian and French phrases (molto bene and allons-y).

Trivia

  • The Midnight Entity is considered to be one of the scariest Doctor Who villains.
  • It is the first villain of the Doctor Who series where the true nature of an enemy has never been revealed.
