Summary: Missed connections and missed chances.
There was one more name on the list and the Doctor had been saving it for last, or as the TARDIS might say, “dithering.”
He could just imagine Rory’s reaction to Jack giving a typical “hello” to Amy, or to Rory himself.
Stop projecting. You need him.
Interstellar gossip said that Jack was back with Torchwood, so the TARDIS materialised at the underground coordinates, where the Doctor found a scene of utter destruction. Clearly, something had gone very wrong, but right now his priority was saving Amelia Pond and Melody.
“Sorry, Jack,” he sighed, re-entering the TARDIS. “Maybe next time.”
