Inside the Doctor's TARDIS Claire and the
Doctor relaxed, enjoying lemonade slammers and listening to The Mission. They were working on their all-over tan thanks to
the Doctor changing the internal lights to sunlamp bulbs.
"This is the life, eh? Want to watch Thelma and Louise again?"
declined, she instinctively wanted to read a book in a darkened room but the Doctor was trying so hard to be a big sister
The Doctor sat up suddenly and gasped. "We have to get to David, quickly. I've just worked out what the whole situation
is. It's a trap to get me out of the way and it's worked just fine."
The Master chuckled, laughed and then went
back to chuckling. "Oh my dear Doctor this time I have lured you into my trap perfectly."
"How did you escape the Matrix?"
Mel asked. "We thought you were trapped inside there forever."
"Lets just say I had a word with all the right people and
in return for a full Presidential pardon I agreed to kill you."
"Flavia betrayed me?"
"She struggled for a while but
even a mind such as her's broke to my will." The Master pulled out what resembled a doll. "She does look better like this
don't you think?" He threw the corpse to the Doctor.
"You repayed her with your usual kindness. You were the one behind
the transmat, why rescue my future self if you can kill me now?"
"It's all part of the game Doctor. A little nudge hear
and a little nudge there and suddenly you're in the middle of the most deadly trap ever devised."
"What do you mean?"
is all a massive diversion." The Master laughed again and produced a small disc of amber and white. "Within a matter of minutes
a billion of these creatures will be distributed on Earth. Once someone holds one for more than ten seconds they will be sucked
into Shada and one of the most deadly killers the universe has known will be freed. Anarchy will rule Doctor, can you imagine
"Then you will use it as an excuse to seize control of the High Council? Very neat Master, very tidy. I should have
thought of it sooner."
"Fortunately I did. Arrest him." The Thirteenth Doctor, flanked by six Chancellory Guards stood
behind the Master. "Thanks for keeping him talking."
"My pleasure Doctor." the seventh Doctor replied. "Shall we save Earth
or will you?"
"Why not both of us? Earth is a big planet after all. Come along David, last one back to the TARDIS owes
Claire a choc-ice." Once her companion was out of hearing range the Doctor became serious. "Thanks for looking after him Doctor,
if he had been with me there was a good chance the Master would have killed both him and his sister."
"The pleasure was
all mine, Doctor."
"Come on Doctor, we have work to do." Mel grabbed her Doctors arm.
"Bye Mel, nice to see you again."
The Doctor left to find what trouble they were getting into. The Master, flanked by the guards had already left via time-rings.
the Gwingharl discs were eventually collected and loaded up inside a stasis pod. It was then fired into temporal orbit around
Hulwas IV, an unpopulated planet on the edge of the galactic disc. Within a thousand generations the beginnings of sentience
evolved just in time as small multicoloured discs began to appear...
The Doctor treated her companions to choc-ices,
"Honestly I don't know where you two put it all. You should both be the size of sumo-restlers by now."
"Well Claire's almost
there already." David, still dressed as the seventh Doctor, quipped and smiled at his sister.
Claire pushed her brothers
choc-ice into his nose.
They all laughed as they walked along the central pier in Blackpool glad for some rest and relaxation.
