The Doctor and Clara arrive at an old manor house in 1974 where Alec Palmer and Emma Grayling are investigating the existence of a ghost. Alec is a former army Major and now a psychologist while Emma is an empathic psychic who can not only sense the presence of paranormal beings but can sense their feelings as well. Palmer explains that the house has been haunted for hundreds of years and the ghost, a woman, is likely much older. Emma senses that the ghost is very lonely but the Doctor realizes that she is not a ghost at all but a creature trapped in a zone where time moves much faster that for humans. The good Doctor gets to play Cupid. Written by
