Summary: What the Doctor saw.
He’d been looking for clues in Reinette’s past and found so much more in her mind.
The glamorous woman whose presence had brightened the French court had depths that few of her admirers would ever appreciate. She wore silks in the most vibrant colours the dyers of Paris could provide, but inside there was something sad and grey.
Perhaps if he’d been able to take her away on the TARDIS, things would have been different. As it was, their minds touched for one glorious moment where he looked into her heart and touched her soul.
And she touched his.
