IC-Burning Daylight(Everyone)

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.

Anna balls up her fists and rubs her eyes, wearily she says, 'There shouldn't be any problem visiting the ward, I'll just say I'm showing you around. But I'm not sure robbing a woman in front of everyone is the best idea'.

Archie looks up from his inward contemplation, straightening his back and squaring his shoulders.

"No, we are civilised people, I will not hear of this. This war is a war for and against decency. Decent people do not rob a woman in a hospital visiting her sick mother."

"We could try convincing Mrs Steadman to assist us? Although we may not wish to reveal our hand just yet. My suspicion is the Major has it and intends to try to convince some of his RAF colleagues that it can assist."

"Which of course it can, in a very Faustian way."

"I tried to convince that witch when I followed them to their warehouse, and look where it got me," says Eugene, running a hand gingerly over a healing sore on his cheek.

"Perhaps Major Steadman might be more amenable, but don't hold your breath."

Archie still looks lost but shakes his head, as though trying to shake sense into it.

“I think perhaps we should go and check on the two of them, make sure they’re not getting into mischief.” He starts heading towards where he assumes the ward is.

"I'll show you where the ward is." Phyllis bustles after Archie.

Phyllis led the way back to the way, along with anyone else who wanted to accompany her. Madeline remained at Catherine's bedside, talking with her softly.

"Don't worry, Mother, he'll bring it this evening when he meets me at the station," whispered Madeline. "I can take over once he goes up tomorrow. I think we can tip the balance and win the air battle."

"I'll be out of here soon enough," Catherine whispered back. "The Father of all Bats has chosen the man who escaped us as his vessel. It is only a matter of time before he can no longer resist the call."

With great trepidation, Eugene follows the others, trying to keep out of site of the Steadmans (as he collectively calls the mother and daughter).

Spoiler:
Eugene couldn't make out all the words, but what he heard was disturbing enough. Madeline was whispering that "he" would bring "it" this evening when he met her, and then Catherine whispered something about the Father of all Bats having chosen the man who had escaped as his vessel, and that it was only a matter of time until he could no longer resist the call.

Archie turns to his colleagues. Sounding hearty and cheery, he says, "Mrs Exeter and Mrs Steadman are still conversing, so perhaps we should give them a few more minutes."

"I want to show you all my plans for an upgraded chapel for this facility. For the spiritual benefit of patients and staff alike. Do come and have a look."

Archie gestures back the way they came, looking hopeful.

Eugene is more than happy to follow Archie out of sight. When at a safe distance, he turns to the others.

"Did you hear that?" he hisses. "Madeline is meeting someone who will bring 'it' - I reckon that's her husband and the gemstone that she's talking about. But we have bigger problems - the 'Father of all Bats' - that's the monster that they summoned - has chosen 'the one who escaped' as his vessel! I-I think they meant either me or the Home Guard sergeant!"

"Oh my word!" Exclaims Phyllis. "Well, try not to worry, Mr Thomson, we'll look out for you and if a 'bat man' should appear I shall give him something to think about!" She brandishes her heavy iron umbrella. "We'd better keep an eye on the other gentleman too; dod she say when all this is to happen?"
