Season Ten Trailer: Friend from the future
Hiya guys I thought I’d write a short chapter on the S10 Trailer that introduces the new companion. Alyssa is also featured. This is a spoiler for the upcoming season of DW in 2017, you have been warned!
Alyssa, the Doctor and their new companion Bill sprint down the corridor away from the number of Daleks that were shooting at them. The red haired woman stopped and turned around. “What is she doing?” Bill asked as the Daleks suddenly stopped unable to move.
“What she does best”, the Doctor replied.
“Doctor, Bill run. Not sure how much longer I can hold them here”, Alyssa said sounding strained. Her powers had grown over the years but even then there was only so much she could do. The Doctor quickly ushered Bill away down the corridor. They ducked into an alcove on the left and waited.
“What's were those things?”
“A Dalek”, the Doctor replied looking out for Alyssa concerned for her wellbeing. He knew that after all these years using her abilities too much still gives her headaches and takes a physical toll on her.
“A Dalek”, the Doctor repeated.
“What's a Dalek?”
“Never mind. It's a Dalek”, The Doctor was getting worried about Alyssa. “Wait here. I’m going…” he broke off when he heard a loud crash. Moments later the red haired woman ran up the corridor. She leant against the alcove panting. “You ok?” he asked.
Alyssa gave him a tired thumbs up and said “Peachy”
“Ali, the Doctor would explain what a Dalek is to me”
“A Dalek is an alien war machine”, Alyssa said before rubbing her temples.
“Yeah. Feels like the Cloister Bell is ringing in my brain”, Alyssa groaned. The Doctor put his arm around her and she leaned her head on his shoulder. “I want to go back to Sexy”, she mumbled.
“We will soon. I promise”
“I’m holding you to that Spaceman”
The trio tensed up when they heard Exterminate being shouted and a shadow of a Dalek on the far wall. “Fat, though”, Bill suddenly said confusing both the Doctor and Alyssa.
“Sorry?” Alyssa asked.
“It'll never get through that door. It's too wide”
“It's a tank. A tank driven by a super-evolved mutant programmed to wipe out all other lifeforms, so please keep your voice down”, the Doctor explained keeping his voice hushed.
“It's got a sucker on it”, Bill said.
“It's also got a gun”, Alyssa retorted.
“It's got a gun and a sucker? Why? They run out of guns?” the dark skinned woman joked. Alyssa felt like face palming herself. I swear Donna never asked this many questions she thought. Thinking of the ginger woman then brought her mind back to the Scottish girl who waited years for them. I miss you Pond. You and Rory. All the companions they’d had together: Martha, Donna, Amy, Rory and Clara held a special place in her heart. However, none more so than the magnificent Ponds.
“Is there a Dalek out the back with no guns and two suckers that's really hacked off?” Bill asked brining Alyssa out of her sombre thoughts.
“I don't know. I've never asked, because I've always been too busy running away. Now please, shh”, the Doctor said staring to get annoyed with her multiple questions.
“One more question. Why do they keep saying exterminate?”
“Duh they want to kill us”, Alyssa replied crossly.
“Wouldn't it be quicker to just say kill?”
“Do we really want them to save time?” the Doctor asked.
“Good point”, she said realising that it wouldn’t be a good idea. The Doctor pulls something out of his pocket after it beeps.
“What is it?” Alyssa asked as the Doctor read it.
“We need to get back to the future. 2017 needs us”
He takes Alyssa’s hand and they run with Bill close behind. Bolts of blue energy just miss them fly over their heads as they ran. The trio skids to a stop after a Dalek shouts “Exterminate!” they turn around as the Dalek announces “Humanoid detected”
Introducing Pearl Mackie as Bill.
