The sun was a huge scarlet ball seeming to hang much lower in the sky than the smaller yellow star that illuminated earth. It made Martha a bit uncomfortable, giving the impression that it might suddenly fall on the planet, crushing everything beneath it.
The light it gave off was peculiar too, tinting everything it touched in shades of red and pink. Even the shadows cast by the low buildings of the small town had a purplish tinge.
Martha kept close to the Doctor, darting nervous glances upwards. Of everything she’d seen, this was proving the hardest to adjust to.
