IC-Ep 3-A Day at the Asylum(Everyone else)

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.

“Onwards and Upwards, Mr Thompson!” Phyllis leads the way out of the ward, “The sergeant and Mr Thompson are walking out for some air in the courtyard.” She tells the duty-nurse. “I do hope we bump into the others so that we can tell them our plans.” She says to Eugene quietly.

Eugene gives a subtle nod. "I suppose we could leave a note saying we're at the church - they'll know which one we mean. Or would that give the game away?"

Phyllis ponders, “That would be a good idea. I could write, Have decided to visit Giles for a cup of tea. P Cruckshank. Hopefully that will be convoluted enough that only our friends can understand it, should the note fall into the wrong hands. Just in case the Steadmans guess it’s the church in Bethnal Green; what do you think?”

“Perfect! Oh, perhaps Charles should join us too; we’ll need him to set up flashbulbs in the church,” replies Eugene.

“Excellent, I’ll just write the note at reception and tell Charles and then meet you in the courtyard. I must say, this is all rather exciting; it’s almost like breaking out of prison!” She hurries ahead and begs pen and paper from the reception:

Dear all, we have decided to visit Giles and have tea with him, yours, etc etc, P Cruckshank.

And she hands to the receptionist. “If anyone asks for me please could you give them this?”

While Mrs. C makes the necessary arrangements, Eugene escorts the Sergeant outside, as if going for a casual stroll.

After the receptionist accepted the note, Phyllis went with Eugene and the sergeant into the courtyard. While it did provide them with the privacy to discuss their plans, it was soon evident that they could not escape from there. The courtyard was a completely interior one, surrounded by the building itself on all sides. There were lovely trees and plants, as well as benches on which to sit and the occasional bird.

The sergeant looked up and smiled. "It's a bright, sunny day," he said. "I like being in the sun."
