The Doctor Who Drabble Files by badly_knitted
Chapter 159: One Last Trip
Author's Notes: Written for Challenge 141: Opulence at dw100.

Spoilers: Mummy On The Orient Express.

Summary: This is what travelling in style used to be all about.

The opulence aboard the train is impressive, it’s like stepping back in time to a grander age, where travelling for the sake of travelling was something only the rich did, and they could afford to do it in style. The Doctor tells her it’s a re-creation of the original Orient Express, only bigger; Clara can well believe it. Not that it’s overly spacious, but still…

If she’s really going to stop travelling with the Doctor, this is a good note to go out on. One last trip, seeing something that no one else on earth in her time ever will.
