Mark talks about the episode in 'The Empire of Mark Gatiss', an exclusive interview in the new issue of Doctor Who Magazine (Issue #515) which is available in stores and online today. 

The episode, The Suicide Exhibition, was originally intended to feature in series 4 - David's third series - and was subsequently considered as part of the Specials series in 2009. Set in a World War II museum, the plot was inspired by the removal of museum exhibits from large cities to safe stashes in remote areas and inside mines. The limited number of items left on show were known as suicide exhibitions, as they would be lost if a bomb fell on them.
