Blurb: Vanessa and Sir Malcolm go to a party at Mr. Lyle's in hopes that the eccentric will look further into the hierogryphics from within the autopsied vampire. But things take a strange twist when Vanessa participates in a seance.

In the meantime, Dr. Victor Frankenstein works with his creature, named Proteus.

SC 01: We open on a lady of the corner, shivering in the deep cold damp of London's night. She unwraps an apple from the newspaper it was wrapped in, to see the news story about Jack the Ripper - though we know it was not Jack who caused the recent deaths being attributed to him.

In the deep fog, she hears a loud clang and shivers in nerves, rather than the cold.
