The eighth episode in our Eighth Doctor Adventures sees the Doctor's first encounter with future companion Izzy Sinclair, in a story that features the return of Time Lord legend, Morbius!

After seven episodes of "practice", this story was something of a reinvention for the series. It introduced new companion Izzy Sinclair who would remain throughout the remainder of the series. It also included appearances from Alex Kingston and Christopher Lee as River Song and Morbius respectively.

From here, we extensively used rotoscoping to show Paul McGann and Jemima Rooper in the same shot - the two actors never having shared an appearance on TV or film before. We also began a low key story arc that would continue throughout the rest of the series before concluding in the penultimate episode.

This episode featured footage from the following Non-Who sources:

  • Urban Gothic: Dead Meat

  • Lost in Austen

  • Hex (multiple episodes)

  • Poirot (multiple episodes)
