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?"

Ambuscade 02: Hiatus

As his companions explored the room, the Doctor looked from the window to the monitor. The settings suddenly made sense. "It looks like we landed on a transport vessel from the undersea mining operation to the surface. We'll be stuck here for 48 hours."

Rose froze midway through ferreting through a drawer whose only contents were a Gideon bible and tentacle porn. "We're trapped?"

Jack was putting the room's fab unit through its paces. He passed martinis to Rose and the Doctor. "We have a huge bed and an open bar. I'm sure we'll find some way to amuse ourselves."
