Reimagined Moments #3

(4 comments)

Onboard the Silver Carrier, the Doctor and Jamie are eating square blocks of food from a dispenser.

"Doctor, what do you think Victoria's doing now?"

"Now?  Well, she's dead Jamie."

"Dead???"

"Yes, of course.  We left her in the late-twentieth century.  Looking at this technology, we must be at least a couple of hundred years on from then.  So unless she somehow managed to live to be more than 200 years old, she'll have aged and died a long time ago.  Right now she's probably just a brittle skeleton lying in a coffin, the flesh long since having bloated and peeled away and rotted and been consumed by bacteria and maggots and weavils and worms and stuff.  Unless they burned her up in a big fire.  In which case she's probably scattered around somewhere in tiny fragments or sitting in a vase."

"At best some Cyberman have got their metals hand on her, and she's marching around the universe somewhere failing to scream at anything."

At least a couple of hundred years? Most fan chronologies put Wheel in Space in the Twenty-first century. There are exceptions of course, like the novel The Indestructible Man which puts Wheel in Space in the 22nd century.

A rare case of finding a way to improve a David Whitaker script, this.
