Episode 4: Beginner
Vireo is examined by the Doctor and Raphael at their Vienna office. They explain to the worried Mother that in order to treat her they must humor her mystical fantasy world of 1590’s France, and perhaps even play parts in that world. It is clear that both the Doctor and Raphael have more than a passing interest in visions and witches.
Beginning the treatment, Vireo has a vision of Pernette, a local farm-woman, speaking and acting with the attributes of the Voice from the forest. Vireo struggles to reconcile these ideas, and begins to firm her suspicions that she herself is a witch and is responsible for the evil the witch is bringing to the community. The Doctor and Gabriel are able to exact the name “Pernette” from Vireo when she descends into a fit, and they hope this will become a point of departure in their treatment of her "hysteria."
