Ambuscade 01: Decompression

The Doctor hurried his companions along, but before he could get his sonic screwdriver out to secure the door behind them, there was the solid thunk of a lock, followed by the hiss of pressurisation.

Jack looked over his shoulder. "That didn't sound good."

The Doctor prodded experimentally at a monitor by the entrance. "It's better than being chased by an enthusiastic dustbin on wheels."

Jack shrugged. "Any idea where we are?"

"I think I know." Rose uncovered a window with a flourish and threw the external lights. A small fish darted out of view. "Could it get any worse?"

I finally got a chance to recycle something that went nowhere as a longer fic. I love when that happens.

Well, I'm surprised that hasn't happened sooner! Hope they have dehumidifiers on board.

I don't expect the view is terribly spectacular at big depths anyway.

No, pretty much zero even with the lights; and not much life deep down, either.

It's never wise to tempt the fates.
