He regards the console, sitting with his legs crossed. “The South Pole? Why?”

His eyes narrow. “Silence is not an answer.”

He moves his hands to his lap; best to know where they are. “I know I reset the HADS but the South Pole when I was at the North?”

He arches an eyebrow. “Is it beccause I was with Clara?”

He looks at his hands before at the central pillar. “I know she's not Amy but she's with me now.”

Then he realises. “Not with me. She's my … that is, she's ...”

He stands, hands in his pockets, staring at the console. “She's impossible and I want to know why.”

He looks up, at the pillar. “I'm the one who needs an explanation, not you. Why were you South? I know I reset the HADS but that's not the point!” He huffs. “I---”


He spins on his heels and grins. “Clara!”

“Who,” she begins while coming towards him, “were you talking to?”

“No one,” he answers, ignoring the pillar which flashes, briefly. “Should we try Vegas again?”

She arches a brow. “Are you sure it'll be awesome?”

“It'll be better than the South Pole,” he assures and turns back to the console. “I still,” he mutters at the console, “want to know why.”

“What was that?”

“Vegas,” he smiles, turning his head, “will be even more awesome now.”

“Agreed,” Clara laughs. “And no more resetting the HADS!”

Reluctantly, the pillar flashes its agreement.

Well done...often wondered the South Pole myself - why?

Thank you! And maybe the South Pole because it was safe ... and away from Clara?

You know, if the Ice Warriors weren't enough by themselves, mention of HADS was awesome.

Great story. Seems to follow the Doctor's confusion in the episode.
