1: Chapter 1

I really liked your build up to the speech. Having heard Peter Davison read the original version at a recent convention (the video evidence is on YouTube if you haven't seen it and you're curious), it was interesting to see what you did with it. I think I might've had Fivey a little more aggressive / sarcastic but I can see why you went with super calm and polite. =)

Author's Response: Thanks very much! Actually, I have seen the YouTube video, and the one that Sylvester McCoy did. I wish I could have seen it in person! PD is a fantastic actor and did the speech wonderfully, but I didn\'t feel he did it as his Doctor. I think what I was going for was the look on his face in The Five Doctors when he and the Master were surrounded by Cybermen and he transmatted away with \"Sorry, must dash!\" - that calm, friendly, polite, but completely in control in the face of overwhelming odds that he does so well. :)
