DOCTOR WHO: A Light In The Dark
A play by Andrew Hawcroft
Based on the BBC Television series
Earth: Present Day - Eastern Europe:
At the end of the Carpathian mountain range, in the Romanian district of Orsova,
there stands a poorly-maintained, near-derelict orphanage amongst the jagged
rocks and frozen, unforgiving woodlands. Inside, six children, led by the remarkable
14 year-old Romanian girl, Florina Pellea, attempt to survive the brutish reign of
orphanage director Gregor, and onsite ‘health care provider’, Nurse Oskovitch.
When things are at their ugliest, like an answer to their prayers, there arrives a strange
man who travels in a large blue box. He claims he is chasing a villain from another
world, but makes time to finally bring some hope and happiness into the lives of the
children he finds in that ghastly place.
Unfortunately, that villain will turn the tables, and force The Doctor and Florina to
travel to an ice-bound world to retrieve The Orborium, the most dangerous object in
existence, from the most dangerous location in existence.
And in the end, The Doctor, having travelled alone for too long, will learn from a
fourteen year-old girl the importance of friendship in the least friendly place one
