Chapter 126: Across The Pond
Author's Notes: Written for Challenge 109: The Other Side of the Pond at dw100.

Summary: Martha and the Doctor arrive in New York.

“Where are we?”

“Martha, have you met my friend?”

Turning around, Martha looks up and her heart skips a beat as she sees the massive statue looming over her.

“Oh my God! That’s the Statue of Liberty!”

Even after travelling back to Shakespeare’s time and then visiting an alien world far in the future, somehow this is the most impressive thing she’s seen yet, because it’s familiar, recognisable, and the other side of the Atlantic. New York, a place she’s only ever dreamed of visiting but always wanted to see.

Travelling with the Doctor really does mean anything is possible!
