Pneumatic Tube

Pneumatic TubeRose stormed into the Console Room. "Where's Mr Wibble?"

Jack's disembodied voice sounded from beneath the floor. "Only the Shadow knows."

Picking up a hefty tool, Rose dropped it through an open panel and departed.

Jack surfaced, gingerly fingering the lump on the back of his head.

"Stay out of Rose's things and stop playing with the pneumatic tube network." The Doctor had it installed on a whim during a brief infatuation with Victoriana, but with the TARDIS rearranging things, the system had never worked properly. There was a good chance Mr Wibble would meet the recycler like his predecessor.

Alas, poor Mister Wibble!

D'you know, I can just imagine there being a pneumatic tube network on the TARDIS now you've put the idea in my head. :)

I can't see Mr Wibble surviving his trip either.

I'm a sucker for pneumatic tube thingies. Loved the shiny one strung across the city in the opening of The Shadow.

*chortles*

Loved the dropping of the tool through the panel - I can actually picture Rose's flick of the wrist. You do OT3 banter very well.

Somehow, I doubt it will.

I love the dialogue in this. Short, sweet, and so full of humor.
