David Robertson quotes from the work of George Waldron, describing a piece of history associated with Peel Castle in the 1440s. This has given rise to some fanciful additions to the history of Eleanor Cobham, the former wife of Humphrey, Duke of Gloucester, thanks in part to William Shakespeare and to A P Graves in 'Manx National Songs'.

Arthur Holmwood has come for the funeral of his fiance, Lucy Westenra. Whilst at first a little reserved, he comes to embrace Professor Van Helsing as a good friend, though the Professor still doesn't explain his actions to him, dragging him forcefully away from the dying Lucy when she asked Arthur to kiss her.
