And that's not even the strangest part of Dr Macht's day. Soon, it'll begin to snow. Soon, the Doctor and his Girl Friday, Mrs Constance Clarke, will come face-to-face with an ancient horror in the blizzard. A Frost Giant, in need of a new body. In need of flesh..."
After three (or is it four) stories, I can’t say that I’ve resonated with Constance Clarke. As far as companions go, she’s exclusive, but at the same time awfully universal and I just can’t bring myself to care what happens to her. One scene she’s all “Doctor Doctor!” and the next she’s “gung-ho keep a stip up a lip”. It’s jarring bouncing around like that. I’m aware that the missing husband back story isn’t going to be resolved within three stories, but it does feel as though Constance’s sub plot is just that…a piece of back story that won’t ever be resolved or dealt with. How about some clues or whatnot? Just to create the illusion that the duo are trying.
