“My sense of time is better than anyone’s,” Gideon declares at one point, while being asked if he is a “time traveler or a seer.”

The star added: “It all starts with the scripts and Tom’s scripts were brilliant and inventive and such a brilliant idea at the core.

“One aspect of it is that you have to listen to your nightmares, because they might be communicating with you in some way.”

Capaldi further elaborated on the character dynamics on the show: “Jess plays a character that Gideon has absolutely targeted. He’s coming for her, he’s coming for her child, he won’t stop. But the reason he’s doing it isn’t what you think. .. or maybe it is.’

The Hour of the Devil is scheduled to premiere October 28 on Amazon Prime Video.
