Summary Edit

River Song and the Eleventh Doctor are invited to a party by the fish people.

Plot Edit

River is opening mail and discovers the fish people have sent her and the Doctor yet another invitation to one of their parties. She tells the Doctor that she'll send them a decline, but he suggests maybe they should go. River argues that it's a trap, but the Doctor argues otherwise. Still trying to talk him out of it, she says that the fish people are one of his greatest enemies and the Doctor chokes on his drink before saying that the fish people are in the low 200s, with Rory's shoe being a higher rated threat. Annoyed, River points out that the last time they went to the fish people's party they were hung over a fire pit, but the Doctor claims he only remembers the guacamole, which River says the fish people tried to dunk them in. The Doctor insists that it sounds fun and River reluctantly agrees to go, but says she'll blame him if things go bad. Later, at the party, the fish people watch River and the Doctor in delight as they hang upside down over the fire pit. The Doctor attempts to talk to River about how good the guacamole is, but River refuses to talk to him.

Characters Edit

References Edit

  • The Doctor wonders if chilli was added to the guacamole they have been offered by the fish people.

Notes Edit

  • This is the first time Rory has appeared in a story in any medium without Amy Pond. Although he appears in one frame, he does not feature in the main adventure. This is the first Eleventh Doctor backup strip in which Amy Pond does not appear.
  • The title is a play on Mark Gatiss' 2013 docudrama special, An Adventure in Space and Time.
