In 1611, Elizabeth Bathory was walled up alive for slaughtering hundreds of young women and bathing in their blood, believing that doing so would preserve her youth. The Fourth Doctor had tried and failed to save one girl from the Blood Countess, and this failure haunted him for centuries. Not mentioned at Elizabeth's trial were the black magic rituals she had conducted with Edward Kelley and Francis Pearson, which brought the Mimic to Earth. Horrified by the rituals, Pearson fled back to England, but was pursued by the Mimic, which saw in Pearson's plagiarisms a kindred spirit. (PROSE: Managra)
