Created by executive producer Steven Moffatt and designed by Millennium Effects’ Neill Gorton, The Silence are based on Edvard Munch’s iconic painting The Scream. This is why you hear their soul-sucking howls right before they blast you from existence.
“We brought the scream into it when they kill somebody,” says Gorton in the “Monster File” excerpt above from Doctor Who: Series Six, Part One’s bonus features. “Because it’s all very well that you can’t remember them and they’re everywhere, but they needed to have a superpower that was scary, intimidating and utterly horrific. The way they kill is to borrow the static energy around them, draw it in and fire that energy out in one giant bolt into the heart of the person that they want to kill, and that just completely wipes them from the face of the Earth.”
