You always feel a special connection to your first Doctor on Doctor Who. For me, that was Tom Baker portraying the 4th Doctor. One of the my favorite episodes featuring him was Horror of Fang Rock. It was based on a real story where the inhabitants of a lighthouse disappeared off the coast of Great Britain. I adore unsolved mysteries of history. They also used part of a poem which is also about the historical event. It’s a great poem and I wanted to share it in honor of National Poetry Month.
The Doctor himself quotes:
Aye: though we hunted high and low,
And hunted everywhere,
Of the three men’s fate we found no trace
Of any kind in any place,
But a door ajar, and an untouched meal,
And an overtoppled chair.
