IC-Ep 1-Into the Storm(Everyone else)

Story, Elizabeth, and Brook arrive in London in September 1940, in the middle of an air raid. They discover the body of a woman who has apparently been killed by something unnatural. They meet air raid warden Eddie Lawlor, who guides them to an air raid shelter where several others have taken refuge. A German airman also arrives, claiming that his bomber was downed by a monster.

For the time being Story ignores Eugene's rant and continues to follow, keeping an eye on the shadows.

Archie shakes his head in the darkness, looking uncharacteristically serious for a moment. "No, those terrible murders took place half a century ago. I am most hopeful that culprit has long since gone to explain himself to his Maker."

"My point is rather that acts which a rational mind would attribute to a wild animal can also be committed by disturbed men."

"Only one way to find out!" Eugene responds, "Shall we?"

The group continued walking. As they got closer to the warehouse, they were treated to a front row seat of an aerial battle above, which reminded them just how dangerous their situation was. A squadron of bombers escorted by a pair of German fighters dropped their bombs somewhere in the distance ahead just as two RAF fighters came at them. One of them zoomed ahead and engaged the escorts, drawing them away. Then the other one dived on the bombers from above and opened fire, sending it spiraling out of the sky. One German fighter slipped away from the British fighter dogfighting it and came up behind the one attacking the bombers, shooting its tail and left wing, which caught fire. As the RAF fighter dodged and weaved, the other one fought off the German still engaged with it and then came up on the tail of the other German fighter, riddling it with bullets and causing it to crash. The remaining German fighter and bombers made good their escape.

Brook winces at the sight and covers her ears. "Let's hurry..."

As Eugene walks by his parked 1938 Standard Flying Eight he is happy to see that it's not yet looted!

For a while Benjamin freezes in his tracks watching the aerial battle above him unfold. Then Brook's comment snaps him out of it.
"Yes," he agrees, "Let's make haste and get out of here."

As the group neared the waehouse, the blazing RAF fighter flew over the nearby canal in the direction of the Thames. The pilot leapt out of it before the flames reached the fuselage, silk blossoming as his chute opened and slowed his descent. The wind blew him towards a flattened pile of rubble where until tonight a building had once stood in a row of warehouses that now resembled a gap-toothed grin. A pool of blood lay in the street not far from the ruined building, a trail leading from it to the ruins. It was then that Story, Elizabeth, Brook, and Eddie realized that the ruins had been the warehouse they sought. Story and his companions came to the realization that they were now trapped in the Blitz, the TARDIS buried somewhere underneath all that debris...
