The Doctor finds himself staring blankly at a small Christmas tree, decorated with blinking multicolored lights, that is sitting just next to the mirror. “I didn’t know you were so–” He trails off, poking gingerly at the miniature tree, which somehow seems to make it blink even more vigorously. “–enthusiastic about Christmas.”

divinity by lyricalprose [Reviews - 4]
The Doctor shoots Jack what is probably intended to be a scathing look.
