Steven Moffat adapts A Doll’s House:
Nora: Goodbye. [She goes out through the hall.]
Torvald [sinks down on a chair at the door and buries his face in his hands]: Nora! Nora! [Looks round, and rises.] Empty. She is gone. [A hope flashes across his mind.] The most wonderful thing of all–?
[The sound of a door gently, lovingly opening is heard from below.]
