The central character played by Cary Elwes is a doctor who has lost his way in Victorian England. He hangs around a brothel, drinking absinthe, and wasting his time. Apparently, he has been blamed for the death of a girl, the daughter of a rich and powerful duke. He wants to marry a rich young woman but is so conflicted and so depressed, he can't move. This is the time when Jack the Ripper has made his presence known, and the doctor is thrust into the middle of this mystery when he comes to realize that it is an alien entity that is actually entering the bodies of young girls. He becomes the whipping boy for this entity and sets out to regain his standing by putting an end the reign of terror. He, himself. has "killed" because he has attacked the women infested with the entity. The thing talks to him like a latter day Regan from "The Exorcist." It is a slick episode that works quite well and keeps us in suspense.
