It seemed fitting somehow; they’d met, from the Doctor’s point of view, in a hospital; now here they were, many years later, in another one. Usually he didn’t do this, he moved on, never looking back, but he owed Martha so much.
Her courage all those years ago had allowed him to reverse the Master’s paradox, but he hadn’t done right by her and her family back then, too consumed with tying to save the instigator of all that suffering. He should have paid more attention to the ones who’d suffered.
Perhaps now he could repay the debt he owed.
