The Many Hands
on 22 December 2013
In 1759, the Doctor and Martha find themselves running from reanimated corpses through the streets of Edinburgh. But when beings appear from the Loch, that's more than the local soldiers want to know about. And Martha finds herself mixed up with Alexander Monro, who seems to have more hands than he ought. There's ghouls and ghosties afoot in Scotland, and it's up to the Doctor and Martha to work out why and how to resolve it.
This was a story that didn't really gel too well for me - it felt like it started somewhere in the middle, and didn't have a beginning, so was hard to get involved in, or to feel that you were taking part in a story that you wanted to learn more about. While the Doctor (Tenth, as played by David Tennant) and Martha were well characterised, the story itself did not hold my interest particularly.
