1.2 The Miniaturist by Lizzie Hopley (2 parts)
Coulton Salt Mine: a rare environment for geological exploration on the
North Yorkshire coast. The Doctor is fascinated by the experiments of
Professor Medra on the Zechstein seabed, but Dodo is distracted. Didn’t
her family settle in this part of Yorkshire?
As the Doctor delves deeper into the work of Professor Medra, Dodo is
helped by security guard Mick Huff, who is concerned about the strange
happenings in recent weeks. Who are the children that keep appearing
around the mine workings? Why are local landmarks vanishing? And how can
the bedrock of a geological ‘quiet place’ be screaming?
