Did…Did Mary Tamm just give Tom Baker and John Leeson pills?
…or maybe it was cough drops? I can’t tell. But now I have this mental image of her in the booth with those two, and she’s got this grandma-style plastic baggie full of random medications. “What do you have? Cough? Here, take one of these pink ones…”
Get out of bed.
Close curtains because there’s a stranger outside and I’m not wearing pants.
Remember Mom told me the guy from the gas company was coming out this morning.
Watching The Armageddon Factor.
WHAT THE HELL WAS YOUR PLAN DRAX???
I like to think about Seven and Ace meeting the Rani sometimes. Like, yeah, the Rani met that face before, but she hasn’t met his new human and the Doctor’s trying to be all chill until he realizes it’s quiet… too quiet
And then he turns around it turns out Ace managed to figure out how to ride around on a dinosaur and both she and dinosaur are currently wreaking havoc. This is not what he had in mind when he said they had work to do.
Meanwhile, in an underground lab 150 million years ago…
"Doctor, I grow weary of you constantly interfering in my research."
"Well, I wouldn’t say constantly. Maybe once or twice-“
"Imbecile! Do you realise how much damage you’ve caused?" She forcefully pressed a few buttons on the computer and the Doctor was surrounded by a force field. "A major setback, but after I deal with you, I’ll be able to complete my work."
"Your work? You’re interfering with Earth’s natural evolution! If you keep-" A low growl echoed around the cavernous laboratory. The Doctor and the Rani paused to listen, then everything went silent. "…where’s Ace? What have you done with her?"
The Rani scoffed. “It’s hardly my job to look after your humans. I don’t know why you insist on travelling with them; the silly girl’s probably been eaten by a theropod by now.”
The far wall of the lab exploded inward as a rampaging allosaurus burst through. It roared triumphantly and began stomping around the equipment. The Rani’s mammalian minions scattered, terrified, as the dinosaur haphazardly broke everything in its path. On its back, the Doctor noticed a small figure tossing explosives at random, enhancing the trail of destruction.
By the time the Ace and the allosaurus had reached them, the Rani had gone. (Not being an idiot, she had decided to cut her losses and take off in her TARDIS.) Ace slid off the allosaurus’ back. “Good boy, Nugget!” she said as she deactivated the force field holding the Doctor in place. Nugget growled appreciatively and shook a table frame off his leg.
"Come on, Professor! We took out the stasis field first, and the volcano’s about to go up any second!"
They escaped the lab by dinosaur in the nick of time.
"So Professor…" she began once they’d reached the familiar blue box. "I don’t suppose Nugget could come with us…?"
OKAY SO I WAS LAUGHING REALLY FUCKING HARD AT BARNES AND NOBLE BECAUSE OF THESE FUCKING ANNOTATIONS IN THE DOCTOR WHO CHARACTER HANDBOOK
PRIVATE SCHOOL UNIFORM
Turlough’s expression is so unreadable not even he knows what he’s thinking.
