“Isn’t this fun?” the Doctor yells, running through deserted streets, a swarm of mutated bugs close behind. “We’ll just lead them back to the laboratory and trap them in the stasis chamber!”
Martha isn’t sure ‘fun’ is the right word; ‘terrifying’ might come closer. She’s seen what the bugs do to anyone unfortunate enough to be in the swarm’s path, flesh stripped down to bare bones in a matter of minutes, but the Doctor swears they’re in no danger because he’s sprayed them with pheromones. They just need to run; the bugs will follow them anywhere.
Martha crosses her fingers.
