Dawn on a world many light-years from earth was a sight to behold. Martha watched in awe as twin suns slowly rose above the horizon, infusing the clouds with tints of peach and apricot against the pale green of the sky.

“It’s beautiful,” she sighed.

“You haven’t seen anything yet,” the Doctor assured her. “You just wait for the dawn chorus.”

“There are birds here?”

“Not exactly.”

A few minutes later, the sky was filled with whistling as flocks of flying lizards took to the air, greeting the morning.

“Nothing’s quite as enthusiastic about sunrise as Mimbles,” the Doctor shouted.

The End
