|1st appearance:||Dark Shadows: 1|
Mrs. Mitchell was a minor character featured in the 1960s Gothic soap opera Dark Shadows. She was played by actress Jane Rose and appeared in episode 1, which is her only known appearance. The character was created by director Lela Swift and teleplay writer and story developer Art Wallace.
Mrs. Mitchell was an elderly woman who, in 1966, was on board a train coming from New York bound for Collinsport, Maine. She sat next to another passenger named Victoria Winters, who was one of only two people getting off at Collinsport. Mrs. Mitchell made small talk with Vicki during the train ride, commenting about how the winters could be particularly brutal in New England. Mrs. Mitchell had lived in that part of the country her entire life and only went to Collinsport once which, as she put it, was more than enough for her. As Mrs. Mitchell chatted on to Victoria, the younger woman drifted off into her own thoughts of her recent past. When she snapped out of it, Mitchell declared that she had not heard a single word she had said.
