L/S of the set as they act out the scene. A manservant comes into the room with a cup of tea but Sarah sends him away. She drinks from a glass instead - possibly medicine. C/U of Sarah and the Doctor. She clutches at her heart and looks distressed.

    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial - issue number unknown.

    Note: paper records and leader state was originally UN7J - this is not on our Index Database and is an odd number for our old system - mystery!

    Most of the missing material is probably to be found on EP295, item called "Unknown Play"

    N.B. Item found in Unidentified Gazettes reel. May be dupe of EP 310
