Another day, another weird alien planet, and by now, Amy would have thought she’d be used to it, but it all still filled her with wonder.
“Look at those!” She pointed towards a group of creatures that looked a lot like mobile, hairy haystacks.
“Don’t point, Amy; that’s considered very rude here,” the Doctor admonished.
“But they’re pointing at us!”
“Yes, well, they’re just children. They haven’t learned manners yet.”
“Children? But they’re huge! What are the smaller ones?”
“Adults. The people here don’t grow up; they grow down. Tread carefully; wouldn’t do to step on someone’s grandparent by mistake.”
