Five additional scenes written and produced for "The Complete Sixth Series" boxset, which examine the question: what does the Doctor do at night, when his companions are asleep?
They included "Bad Night", "Good Night", "First Night", "Last Night" and [[ThemeNaming "Up All Night"]]. "First Night" and "Last Night" comprise one two-part episode.
The episodes resolve some of the plot threads set up in Recap/DoctorWhoNSS4E8SilenceInTheLibrary.
Like "[[Recap/DoctorWho2011RedNoseDaySpecialSpaceAndTime Space]]" and "[[Recap/DoctorWho2011RedNoseDaySpecialSpaceAndTime Time]]", these minisodes are all [[BottleEpisode Bottle Episodes]], and the first four are also MinimalistCast episodes.
Amy answers the TARDIS phone one night, and gets the Prince of Wales on the line. She absently swats a fly while trying to figure out what's going on. The Doctor arrives shortly after, carrying a fish bowl and getting quite cross at Amy for touching his phone. As Amy tries to get through to the Doctor about the fact that she can't sleep, because she's been through a severe trauma for months now, the Doctor yells out to River (outside the TARDIS) about the fact that the fish is not, in fact, the Queen, but an ordinary fish. And the fly Amy killed was a man. He delegates Amy's emotional troubles to a very sleepy Rory while dashing out again.
!!Tropes regarding "Bad Night":
* BadLiar: The Doctor, when it comes to River
-->'''The Doctor:''' I do ''not'' sneak out at night to parties with River Song!\\
'''Amy:''' How is she?\\
'''The Doctor:''' Fine.
* BalefulPolymorph: The Queen has somehow become a goldfish.
* BroughtHomeTheWrongKid: Or rather, goldfish.
* NoodleImplements: The Doctor's incident involves a party, River Song, a cricket bat, the Queen turned into a goldfish, and a pet shop. Feel free to imagine what's happening.
* NoodleIncident: How '''did''' the Queen turn into a goldfish?
The Doctor comes home from a party one night to find Amy waiting for him. She still can't sleep; there are two timelines in her head, one with her parents and one without, and she's been having a lot of trouble coping. She feels that the Doctor's human friends are just little blips in his life, and even Rory's Auton memories are flighty at best. The Doctor avoids actually reassuring her, instead hooking her up to the TARDIS telepathic link and having her look at her most painful memory of all. Which consists of her dropping an ice cream when she was little. As the TARDIS uncovers more of the memory for her, it changes to a nice red-headed lady in a nighty buying her a second ice cream. The Doctor takes her out to go do just that.
!!Tropes regarding "Good Night":
* CallBack: To ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E13TheBigBang The Big Bang]]''.
** Amy's changing memory is similar to Kazran Sardick's in ''[[Recap/DoctorWho2010CSAChristmasCarol A Christmas Carol]]''.
** Amy has a "I hate you"/"No, you don't" exchange with the Doctor, [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E05FleshAndStone just like her]] [[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E1TheImpossibleAstronaut daughter]].
* DoubleConsciousness: Amy discusses the fact she remembers two lives. According to the Doctor, everyone has this to a certain extent- whenever your memories don't quite match reality, or you meet someone who you feel like you've known forever, it's because of [[ArcWords time being rewritten]].
* NoodleIncident: The Doctor's exploits while Amy and Rory are asleep. Apparently, he helped out a possessed orchestra. On the moon. Which somehow involved MarilynMonroe and a biplane.
* RippleEffectProofMemory: Amy discusses with the Doctor how she remembers having two different timelines.
* ThousandYardStare: Rory has one whenever he remembers being "The Last Centurion". The Doctor has noticed.
* TimeyWimeyBall: The Doctor causes Amy's past to change while she is remembering it.
'''First Night / Last Night'''
The Doctor and River have their very first date since their wedding, during her first night of imprisonment in Stormcage. While she changes into a dress he got her, a second River appears, who's been in Stormcage for five years. The Doctor tries to prevent them from meeting each other in order to prevent paradox. A third River walks in, wearing that same dress, followed by an older version of the Doctor. He's going to take her to see the Singing Towers of Darillium -- he's been promising for ages. The Doctor remembers River saying that this was their last date before River's death in the Library, and with much sadness in his expression, he wishes his older self good luck. His older self wishes him good luck with their first date as well, and the youngest River happily dashes into the control room again after the older two have gone.
!!Tropes regarding "First Night" / "Last Night":
* ActingForTwo: Multiple versions of the Doctor and River appear.
* CliffhangerCopOut: At the end of "First Night", the second River bursts through the TARDIS doors and falls to the floor, unconscious. Cue the start of "Last Night": "River, you are holding your breath."
* ContinuityNod: River's formal dress is the same one she wore in ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E2DayOfTheMoon Day of the Moon]]''.
* DramaticIrony: River Song: "He's taking me to the [[Recap/DoctorWhoNSS4E9ForestOfTheDead Singing Towers of Darillium]]! He's been promising for ages!" Also counts as a WhamLine, MoodWhiplash and a TearJerker.
-->'''Doctor:''' We've got ten minutes, get dressed.\\
'''River:''' Oh, that's ''so'' close to the perfect sentence.
-->'''Doctor:''' "River, you can't do things like this!" [i.e., asking Sontarans if they're on a hen night and being shot at accordingly.]
--> '''River:''' "What are you going to do? ''Spank'' me?"
* KissOfLife: The Doctor seems to be about to try this when he realizes River is playing possum.
--> '''River Song''': *sigh* Doctor. You and your secrets. [[Recap/DoctorWhoNSS4E9ForestOfTheDead You'll be the death of me]].
* TwinThreesomeFantasy: River thinks so.
--> ''Two'' of you!? The mind races, does it not?
** Definitely a CallBack to the "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E7AGoodManGoesToWar whole different birthday]]" River mentioned.
** [[Recap/DoctorWho2011RedNoseDaySpecialSpaceAndTime Like father like daughter?]]
'''Up All Night'''
Sophie prepares to leave for the weekend, and Craig is worried about whether or not he'll be able to take care of Alfie.
!!Tropes regarding "Up All Night":
* DolledUpInstallment: Doesn't match the rest of the set in style or theme, or for that matter share any characters, and looks suspiciously like a deleted scene or prequel for "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E12ClosingTime Closing Time]]" that they just decided to stick the "Night and the Doctor" label on.
* TemptingFate: Regarding Craig and Alfie spending the weekend alone, Sophie asks what is the [[Recap/DoctorWhoS32E12ClosingTime worst that could happen]]. Craig [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this.
** [[LampshadeHanging So do the lamps.]]
