Season 33 – Production code 19F2
Written by Julio Angel Ortiz
Puerto Rico, 1901. It has been three years since the end of the Spanish-American war. In its aftermath, the island is adjusting to life under the control of a new government. Life goes on…or does it? Into this unsure time, the Doctor and Christine find themselves drawn into a whirlwind of strange events.
On the farm of a gentle and kind man named Orlando, calves are found dead, horribly and ritualistcally mutilated. On their bodies, runes and symbols have been carved, forming the design of a dark work.
On a clear night, the home of an known occultist is decimated by what appears to be a violent tornado…yet none of the near-by homes were damaged. And among the wreckage, the body of a United States Senator is found, completely untouched, when just an hour prior this same senator had only arrived onto the island, many miles away.
A murder attempt. An army captain bent on serving justice, no matter what the costs. The sacrifice of a young woman. Rising political tensions between island natives and US soldiers. Animal mutilations. And a dead senator.
The Doctor needs to discover how all of these pieces fit, before the pattern of darkness overtakes him.
But, as he soon discovers, it’s already too late.
