"September 1666. Great Fire of London." The Doctor folded his arms and surveyed the devastation in progress. "Helped stop the plague."

Absently scratching her leg, Rose froze at his words. "So aside from fleas and rat bites, I could be infected with the Black Death?"

"TARDIS will fix you right up. Thought you'd like to see a little history."

Rose leaned out, smelling smoke and the ripe aroma of 17th century London. "Next time can we pick a place with indoor plumbing?"

WORD. Crowded busses in summer are bad enough. It boggles the mind to imagine the stink of an entire city, especially in the middle of a plague outbreak, with a raging fire on top of that. *pinches nose shut*
