She Knew was the seventeenth short story in the Short Trips anthology Short Trips: Snapshots. It was written by Nigel Fairs. It featured the Third Doctor.


Jonathan Smith has recently broken up with his boyfriend, Adrian Bullock. He decides he needs to get away and goes to their cottage in Llanfairfach. To his surprise and horror, he realises that Adrian is there with his new boyfriend, James Harris.

Jonathan sleeps on the couch that night. The next day he heads for the pub, the Speckled Woodpecker. He ends up sharing a bottle of red wine with a white-haired man at the bar. They have both lost someone recently. As they commiserate with each other, Jonathan confesses that he almost burnt down the cottage, with Adrian and James in it, while putting various letters and mementos on the fire. The man explains to Jonathan that he did these things because he was hurt, and the man understands because his friend recently left him.

As they part, both men are smiling.
