Doctor Who: The Bright Asylum

The Gang at 42nd Street


A small hand holds up a small note.

The note is blue, squarish. Straight-edged and unassuming.

“…-this- is what he wants us to do while he’s busy with that artifact he stole?” asks the owner of the small female hand, her small female head bobbing side to side with what must be disdain.
