And the ring Mrs White accidentally knocked from Miss Scarlet’s bed, was it truly a gift for the Doctor? No! Miss Scarlet, you told me you grew up an orphan, that was only half true. Your parents were absent, yes, but not because they were dead. That ring is your birth right, you are Doctor Black’s daughter!
