Comments: Lord Byron and Mary Wollstonecraft and some friends spend a stormy night together. The Lord begins a tale of terror. A knocking at the door brings a scare and a laugh.
The Doctor and her companions pop into when Frankenstein was written. The mansion is a dark and foreboding place. Something wicked prowls the halls of the mansion.
What is going on inside this house? Is it haunted? Things start happening and fast. Something is playing with people’s minds.
Something totally unexpected is behind it all. The Doctor’s encounter with it turns violent. This solder is almost unstoppable.
The Doctor has a Vulcan Mind Meld ability. This is new. She also has a Vulcan Death grip.
The battle here is an epic one for the future. Sometimes even the Doctor can not win. Well in the first part but round two. The first round here moves a little too slowly after the initial action.
The Doctor even gets a poem written about her. Well, she is one unique woman unlike anyone else in existence. No one is even close.
