Silent Scream or is that Screaming Silence?

If you were watching TV last Saturday night you may well have had a sense of déjà vu but were not able to put a finger on it, quite. It seems the new 'Doctor Who' monsters The Silence are based on Norwegian artist Edvard Munch's expressionist painting 'The Scream'. So, if you were watching this marvelous slice of TV science fiction on Saturday and you thought I’ve seen that face before, maybe that is why.

Ironic, isn’t it? The Silence is based on The Scream!
