At the now familiar sound of the TARDIS materialising, the team wandered over to greet their visitor.
The last couple of times the Doctor had stopped by, he’d been alone, but now it seemed he’d acquired a new companion.
“Bloody hell! What is this place? Looks like the Bat Cave or something!”
“Donna Noble, welcome to the Torchwood Hub!” the Doctor said, grinning manically as he bounced on the balls of his feet. “Brilliant, isn’t it? They even have a Pteranodon!”
“You’re ‘aving me on!”
“Nope! Jack, Ianto, good to see you! Ah, Toshiko! Now, where’s this drone of yours?”
“Hang on a mo, Spaceman, how about some proper introductions before you swan off?”
The Doctor ignored her, heading over to Tosh, eager to see her new invention.
“Drone! Isn’t that a great word? Droooooone!”
Jack and Ianto shared a look then turned to Donna.
“I’m Captain Jack Harkness. This is my partner, Ianto Jones, Dr. Owen Harper, Gwen Cooper, and Toshiko Sato, resident genius.”
Tosh waved then turned back to the Doctor.
Donna eyed Jack and Ianto.
“Typical. The pretty ones are always gay or taken. So why’s there a bloke chained to your railings?”
