Summary: The Doctor gets an unpleasant surprise and disturbing thoughts.
A wife; a very beautiful wife.
The Doctor tried not to recoil too visibly at the sight. Jack and Martha were counting on him. They couldn’t know how much it hurt to see the public display of affection, even if it was just a display.
He wondered how much of a marriage his old enemy really had. Time Lords were capable of great passion, as well as cruelty, but generally in private. So what exactly did Mr. and Mrs. Saxon get up to behind closed doors? What kind of caresses passed between them?
And why did he care so much?
