The Doctor cursed under his breath; he should have known better than to believe the word of a Shadhlich, they were a notoriously treacherous race of people who’d cheerfully sell out their own parents, children, siblings, or bosses if they saw some advantage for themselves in doing so.
Really he only had himself to blame, but this Shadhlich had sounded so sincere, requesting assistance in repairing its damaged spaceship, and the Doctor was in the business of helping people in difficulty.
Well now he was in chains to be sold as a slave. Good thing he still had his sonic!
