Although he only appeared in a few episodes, it is difficult to forget Peter Jürgens, one of Dr. Gillen’s patients. Jürgens was a serial killer with a rather disturbing past, and a cassette recording in episode 19 revealed some of the horrors he endured.
"Yes, I was punished every day as a child, by my mother. Whenever I was hit, I would always go down to the basement… and down there was a huge doll my mother loved… a long-haired… female doll. When I was being hit, I pleaded to that doll for help… but it just sat, grinning and watching in the darkness, as my mother beat me. I don’t even want to remember… that place… And in that storage room were many many pictures of my mother. Everywhere I looked… mother… mother… mother… always, always watching over me!"
As it would turn out, the same doll that haunted Jürgens is part of the Bébé line, a series produced by the French company Jumeau. The first Bébé dolls were made in the 1870s, and quickly became popular among children. They are characterized by their bisque heads, paperweight glass eyes, and exaggerated eyebrows. Today these dolls are valued at thousands of dollars apiece.
That doll scared the FUCK out of me when I first watched that episode.
