The Doctor is living in 1892 London, still despondent over the loss of his friends. He has no interest in what is happening in the world even after he learns that the snow is strangely sentient and can form into rather vicious snowmen. A local barmaid, Clara, is intrigued by the Doctor and he is soon intrigued by her when it turns out she also works as a governess caring for Captain Latimer's two children. Together, they fight Dr. Simeon who has known the evil snowmen since he was a child. The Doctor is shocked when he realizes that he's met Clara before....and will no doubt meet her again. Written by
