Train of the Dead

Chapter Five - The CyberLeader

"DOCTOR!" The first one shouted "YOU WILL BE DELETED", it stepped towards him, the others did the same and soon The Doctor and Ken were surrounded by them. The Doctor had his hands in the air, his sonic screwdriver back in his pocket. "No! No!" The Doctor yelled"We'll come quietly! Just take us with you!", the cybermen all tilted their heads slightly, and a small buzzing noise filled the air,"They're sharing information, wirelessly" He said.

Yellow light was shining through the door, and The Doctor and Ken winced as they came out of the dim, green carriage and into the bright light. Ken looked around at the blinking lights and heard the soft electronic hum of all the different machines that were crammed into this small space. "Oh...
