The young Ernestina Scott is unusually beguiled by one of the museum's exhibits, and when the Doctor befriends her, they unwittingly embark upon a terrifying escapade.
Chased by animated dolls through a nightmarish model house, the Doctor realises he is being hunted by a familiar enemy. The unmistakable sound of hornets is in the air, and they are keen to speak to him. Overseeing this game of cat and mouse is the Palace of Curios' curator - a certain Mrs Wibbsey....
With Tom Baker as the Doctor, Richard Franklin as Mike Yates, Susan Jameson as Mrs Wibbsey, Clare Corbett as Ernestina, and Christian Rodska as the Reverend Small, The Dead Shoes is the second of five linked stories written by the acclaimed Paul Magrs.

Fun Tom Baker Doctor Who story!
really love this story. Great to hear Tom Baker leading a rollicking new Story featuring his wonderful creation, the best Doctor Who.
Best Foot Forward...
Always a pleasure to hear Tom Baker back in the Tardis, and this story is pure fun! Part 2 of the Hornets' Nest, so if you've not done part 1 then why are you reading this?
(Also Cromer is a nice little in-joke for classic Whovians...)
