INT. TARDIS - DOCTOR'S CONSOLE ROOM

The Doctor checking various things at the TARDIS console, YAZ and RIVER sitting quietly near the steps talking.

YAZ
Your not coming with us, are you?

RIVER
No, I’ll look after the other TARDIS.
Never know when you might need one that is willing to not look like a police box.

YAZ
(Glancing towards the Doctor and whispering)
You haven’t been to Darillium yet, have you?

RIVER
(smirks)
Now, that would be telling, and where is the fun in that…
You know there are diaries from Victorian Era Ladies,
that show ample evidence that Ladies of that time were 35 for years....
When my parents first started traveling with the Doctor in their early twenties,
I was never less than 35 when I saw them as River....
So what's a century or so when married to an ageless god.


INT. TARDIS - STUDY / SMALL LIBRARY
THE DOCTOR sorting through the boxes from St Luke’s; looking sadly at the two photos set on a desk. YAZ reading work related training material on a near by couch.

YAZ
Doctor, I think we’ll see River again.
When she first saw me beside the TARDIS she called me Detective…

THE DOCTOR
(Distractedly)
Well it does say police on it.
She’s flirty like that.

YAZ
I noticed.
The thing is, it wasn’t yours,
it was the TARDIS you'd sent us back from Gallifrey in
and she apologized right away and corrected it to PC Khan.
We never even really did introductions....

THE DOCTOR
(Excited now, The DOCTOR looks up at YAZ and Grins)
Oh! more Spoilers......
