“I…don’t know what you mean, Sir,” Fredrick stammered, looking to Mary for support.
“It’s because he’s posh,” Mary giggled. “Using all those scientific terms - ‘coming back to life,’ indeed.”
In the distance, a grandfather clock chimed midnight. Time slowed and a woman screamed. The Doctor blinked and when he opened his eyes, Fredrick lay on the floor with tire marks across his chest.
He was clearly dead.
