Sarah loses her sight as the tension between Solon, the Doctor, and the Sisterhood escalates. Morbius grows ever more tiresome of waiting for a body. Then, in an early 3rd Doctor episode, the Doctor learns that Doctor Quinn may be hiding vital information about the force responsible for the power failures. Somehow, whenever I see the TV series with Jane Seymour as Dr. Quinn, she comes off as a fictionalized version of this man. The characters seem so similar.
