IC-Ep 2-House Call(Rufus/Anna)

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.

IC-Ep 2-House Call(Rufus/Anna)

Queensway, Bayswater- London, England
7:30 AM - Sunday, September 8, 1940

As Lord Rufus Colville stood outside the Queensway Tube Station and looked around, he happened to see Anna Jerkins approaching from down a side street, and she saw him too.

“Hello there. How’s your day?” Anna said pleasantly in good cheer.

"It has been a bit of a long one, I'm afraid. For a moment I thought I had solved the mystery of the monster out in the air raid as a madwoman on the loose, but I've found myself with even more questions. I'm hoping her daughter Madeline Steadman will be able to answer some questions. I sort of eavesdropped on the other doctor giving you the address, pardon my bad manners but I'm glad to have someone around to tell me if I'm going crazy or not."

"No worries there. I've been pulling my hairs out here too. I'm more or less the representative of our sanitarium here. I lead the team...some of the time, and I suppose I need to help out with incidents like this. Are you ready to interview Mrs. Steadman?" Anna replied as she made a tired sigh. Trudging down the streets, with lichen growing from some of the cracks. She stumbled slightly, before regaining her balance as though nothing happened.

"I'm as ready as I'll ever be. I don't know anything about madness but luckily I'm quite good with ordinary folks."

"Great. Let's go, then." Anna said energetically.

Following the directions Anna had received, she and Rufus made their way to Madeline's house, which was one of several similar-looking two-story houses in a row on a side street. It was on the left side of the street, and light was visible through the windows which were crisscrossed with tape, the blackout curtains having been drawn aside.

A minute later, the door was opened by a pretty woman with black hair in her early twenties, wearing a checkered red and white dress. "Good morning," she said.

"Hello, mind if we come in?" Anna said, smiling.

"Are you Anna Jerkins?" asked the woman. "You got here quickly. I was just getting breakfast ready. Please, come in." She stepped aside. "And who are you, sir?"

"Thank you." Anna said, as she took off her shoes and pulled on slippers.

"Lord Rufus Colville, pleased to make your acquaintance" said Lord Colville.

Madeline bowed, then closed the door after her guests entered. They passed through a small vestibule, empty but for an umbrella holder and coat rack, and into a living room. The room was narrow but long. A sofa, an armchair, and a wireless set were present in the room. A staircase led up, and an archway led to the dining room.. "Welcome, Your Lordship," she said. "Would you both like some tea? A bit to eat?"

"Do you have any Eastern import? I heard the oolong was getting popular." Anna asked, smiling as she sat down in the couch. The living room was of a good design. Better than the one at her place, at least. "But of course, I'm fine with a less exotic blend. I already had breakfast, so, none necessary."

"Nothing for me, thank you. I've already eaten" says Rufus.

"I'm afraid all I've got is Earl Grey," said Madeline, leading the way into the dining room through the archway. "It's hard to get tea from the Orient, what with the war." The dining room featured a long mahogany table and six chairs in the middle. An open door led further back, and another one was in the left wall. "Feel free to have a seat. I'll be back in a few." She went through the open door.

"Earl Grey's fine, I suppose." Anna said, taking a seat. "So, milord, where do you want to start? Do you want to by askibg a few questions first, or do you want to look around a little bit? Mrs. Steadman seems to be very cooperative so far. The probability of Catherine hiding out here is slim, and I assume that we could ask her about her mothers' past contacts. She might be hiding elsewhere."

"I think you're right that it is unlikely Catherine is hiding out here, nevertheless we'll need to look around just to be sure. With our host permission, of course. But lets start like you suggest, with a few questions."

"Yes, I suppose we can ask a few question. Perhaps we should ask about what she was doing last night and whether or not she had seen anyone skulking about in this neighbourhood."
