The Devil’s Footprints (8.12)

Big Finish - Short Trips

The 7th Doctor and Mel stop off in 1850, to visit an old friend of the Doctor’s, HT Ellacum, a vicar of the parish. And the whole community is up in arms about some strange footprints in the snow. Meanwhile, the Doctor and Mel end up at the parish and Mel has some strange experiences with HT. Yet despite the threat, she isn’t really phased. Very cool and collected, that Mel! She and the Doctor come up with a good solution, ultimately. It all seems based on the alien just not intimidating them and being in a situation it doesn’t know how to handle. It’s quite the interesting mystery and I really, really liked this story! Excellent and left me with a tear in the corner of my eye.
