“Penny for them?” Jack asked. He and Ianto were enjoying a trip to the future with the Doctor, but Ianto was even quieter than usual.

“This is incredible,” Ianto replied, “and we’re only a thousand years into the future. You came from a world two thousand years ahead of even this! Doesn’t earth seem horribly primitive to you?”

“I’d already travelled extensively with the Time Agency,” Jack pointed out, “but yes, at first it seemed impossibly backward; took some getting used to. But if you think earth’s primitive now, you should’ve been there during the Cretaceous. That was really primitive.”

The End
