95:120 Doctor Who: The Many Hands by Dale Smith

With the 10th Doctor as played by David Tennant and Marth Smith as played by Freema Agyeman.

It's Edinburgh, 1759, and there is a dead man climbing aboard the carriage of Benjamin Franklin.  The dead start walking up out of the Loch and the preacher 12 years dead is trying to return to his flock and is bringing most of the cemetery with him.  What they have in common is a strange hand attached to their chest but how is that causing the dead to walk again?

This one was slow and while I found the Doctor to be written fairly true, I thought Martha came off as much weaker with little personality and overall the story just wasn't very gripping.
