Sophie and I have been languishing in this dungeon for nearly a week, no food, the only water what little drips from the cracks in the ceiling. We have seen and heard nothing from our captor since he locked us in here; we have no idea if he was captured or killed attempting to execute his plan to destroy all the Burger Kings on earth. The lack of food is beginning to make us see and hear things that aren’t really there. Or are they?
At first we can scarcely believe our eyes when a police box materializes in the cell behind us; but it is definitely real and solid, and as we examine it, the door opens and we are invited inside by a strangely dressed man who seems oddly delighted to see us.
He appears to think we are people he knows, and immediately assumes an easily familiar attitude, especially toward Sophie. Things become even more bizarre when he abruptly changes his appearance without warning.
Ignoring Sophie’s protests, our mysterious rescuer pilots his unique craft to Britain and drops her off in what he thinks is South Croydon, apparently oblivious to the fact that the display on his control panel says that we are in Aberdeen. And then, rather than taking me back to the university, he sets a course for deep space!
Having already been to deep space once, I have no desire to go back, but there seems to be no arguing with my new companion.
Where are we going? What are we going to do when we get there? And who IS on first, anyway? These are all questions that will be answered in time; because I am Dennis the Vizsla, and I never give up.
