It’s terrible, just terrible. I have only just become reacquainted with the Doctor and now he’s… dead.
I had recently met him in London and he invited me to this little gathering. I know the Colonel too of course, but he seems to have withdrawn from me since… it… happened so I’m quite alone here. I am used to it. Orphan’s lot I’m afraid.
I wish I could be more help. I was taking a walk when it happened, the rain helps me think. I didn’t see anyone else until we were all gathered in the conservatory. Well, Mrs Peacock had passed me from that direction a little earlier but we did not speak, she seemed agitated and I turned away to head for the gardens and thought little of it. Do you think it’s related?
Note: Miss Scarlet’s boots show no signs of having been in the rain.
