Episode Summary

Part Six
After a brief stop at the hospital Minty finds herself back in the graveyard. She sees Tom who informs her that Dorrie is spitting blood as well. She now finds out that Tom's name is really Teddy Larkin and that Tom is just a nick name. Minty asks him to meet her at the moondial at midnight tonight. Minty hears that Ms Raven is going on a ghost hunt that very night. Minty feels that something is going to happen tonight. She looks at the church from the window and thinks that she needs a lucky charm to protect her. Suddenly she realises what charm is necessary. She goes and fetches a small hand mirror which has the mirror in the shape of a cross. At about 11:30 or so Ms Raven sets off. Minty also leaves and heads for the moondial. She meets Tom sitting on the moondial. Minty thinks she knows who the figure is on the moondial. They both stand on the dial and she says "light and shadows in turns but always love" The dial then spins and they both appear in a new time, it is cold November night. The small figure of Sarah is seen moving in the distant. Minty and Tom run towards her. Sarah is talking to herself and indirectly lets them know that it is Halloween. Sarah is attempting to get the waters to heal her face for the last time. While she is singing a large number of hooded figures appear with animal masks carrying pumpkins. They encircle the fountain where Sarah is chanting "Devil's coming". Sarah makes a run for it to escape them, but they run after her. Minty and Tom run to help Sarah. Minty tries to frighten them off by threatening them with things about the Devil. They fall for her threats and this allows Minty Tom and Sarah to escape. The masked boys soon realise they have been fooled by Minty and Tom and so set off in pursuit. Minty, Tom and Sarah head for the moondial. Once there Minty reveals the mirror and shows it to Sarah. Sarah is afraid but eventually looks into the mirror. The mirror does not crack. Sarah realises she is a pretty young girl, not the monster she was told. Ms Vole then appears and heads right for the trio. Minty then points the mirror at her and she is utterly destroyed. Tom and Sarah are now free and vanish as Minty heads back to her time. Back in the bedroom she takes out the mirror to see it. It has cracked (was Ms Raven / Augusta Vole the Devil). She then goes to the hospital and while she is there talking to her mother, mum opens her eyes and starts talking. Back at Aunt Mary's house, Ms Raven has now gone. Minty goes to see World who knows she has set the children free. Minty then goes to the graveyard and stands by the little grave of Teddy - Edward Larkin alias Tom. In the distance we see a Tom, Sarah and Dorrie running off happily together, free at last and so ends a classic BBC children's drama.moreless
