I really enjoyed this one. And a pretty terrifying concept of dying in reality if you die in your dreams. Later used to good effect in Dreamscape and A Nightmare On Elm Street.

Inception in The Twilight Zone!

I like that basically all that happened from the Doctor's point of view is that a guy came into his office, fell asleep and died.

We don't really know what happened to Edward Hall. He walks into the office, takes a look at the receptionist, goes into the Doctor's office, falls asleep and has a dream about telling the doctor about a dream he's been having, then dreams he jumps out of the window. The whole thing about Mya could be the first time he's ever dreamed it for all we know, especially due to the fact that he's probably never seen the receptionist before now - the receptionist that he turns into Mya in his dreams.

I liked it so much, I watched it twice -- the first time for pure enjoyment and the second time to see how was constructed and see what clues, if any, were given away. It is a fascinating story and one that is, if you pardon the pun, nightmarish!
