IC-Ep 2-Buried(Story/Elizabeth/Brook/Eddie/Seamus/Tinker)

London, 1940: The world is engulfed in the flames of war, and now the war has come to Great Britain's capital. German bombers rain death and destruction upon the blacked-out city, but what other terrors lurk unseen in the darkness? The Time Lord, his companions, and a handful of London's inhabitants doing their bit may be the only ones who can avert disaster.

This is Classic Doctor Who meets Call of Cthulhu, the fifth of a series of connected adventures set in different eras and locations that includes The Terror Out of Time, The Ninth Planet, The Shadow Over Dunwich, and The Brotherhood of Death.

Salmon Lane - London, England
5:20 AM - Sunday, September 8, 1940

Eddie and a constable with Chinese features approached the ruined warehouse, which had since been cordoned off, with another air raid warden standing nearby in conversation with Story, Elizabeth, Brook, Seamus, and Tinker. He recognized the warden, who was about forty years old with dark curly hair, as Melissa Rogers.

"Yes, if she took shelter in the basement, that's the only way she could still be alive down there," she said. "Hopefully there's enough air to keep her that way for a while. The floor hasn't collapsed yet under the weight of all that rubble, but there's a danger that it could at any moment, especially if it's disturbed or more weight is put upon it. We'll have to dig a narrow tunnel near the edge so we can access it." She looked up. "Oh, Eddie, I'm glad you're here! Saves me having to go for help."

"Do we have to do the digging personally or does the city have some means of digging these buildings out?" Tinker asks.

She moves in close to whisper to Brook, Elizabeth, and Story, "Maybe we shouldn't imply that we are looking for a person. Do you want to be responsible for diverting rescue resources?"

Eddie nods at Melissa. "Nice to see you too. Does that mean the Fire Brigade aren't already on their way with something to help us dig a tunnel?"
He looks at the constable, "What about your lot? Could do with a few more helping hands here."

"Not yet," said Melissa. "I'd just finished inspecting and blocking off the scene. This gentleman reported that a girl named Nell went inside last night." She indicated Seamus. "It looks like nobody could have survived, but if she took shelter in the basement, she just might still be alive, though trapped down there. I'll go fetch the fire brigade. They'll have the tools we need to dig her out. Don't let anyone mess about with the rubble while I'm gone. Too much pressure could collapse the wreckage into the basement, and that would crush any down there to death." Melissa began to head away.

Constable Lee shrugged. "So sorry, the sergeant only had me to spare," he said. "Busy night, busy day."

Seeing the Constable, Seamus feigned a coughing fit, being careful to keep his face from being revealed. He didn't want to be recognised by anyone in the police, and shuffled himself to the side of the group furthest from the man. He dared not even speak, but faded with the occasional low sob. Hopefully his fear will look like his distress for Nell.

"Story, do you think this is a good idea?" whispers Elizabeth to her friend. "I think Tinker made a valid point."
