The creature was falling. Falling towards the ground, towards the end of its rather short existence. And yet...
"You're a whale!" the Doctor yelled over the rush of the wind. "You're not even supposed to be up here. Although I have been to a planet once where fish swam in the sky. It's quite lovely, you'd love it. Just watch out for the sharks. They bite!"
The creature kept falling, quickly approaching its doom, and yet it seemed rather oblivious to this fact. One could say, even happy about it.
"Hello, ground!" it said with a smile.
The Doctor winced.
