"I don't know-" the Doctor began, but then he clutched his head and winced as a sudden burst of gold fire began to grow from his temple. "Or maybe I do know," the Doctor groaned and hammered his fists against the side of his head as the fire began to spread. "No, not now. I can't do this now. I need to be focused!" He roared, just managing to open his eyes enough to see the old man walk to the door and open it wide.
"NO DON'T GO OUT THERE!" The Doctor yelled with dismay before pointing to him and shouting, "Astrid! Stop him!"
The woman needed no further encouragement. She grabbed a sword from the table and raced across the room, just managing to catch up with her father and place herself between him and whatever lurked outside the simple brick house.
The old man roared in protest, but did not attempt to harm his daughter as he had the Doctor. "Get out of my way Astrid! You are disgracing me!"
"No father, these beings are not servants of our gods. I felt it the moment I laid eyes on them!" Astrid cried, her blue eyes narrowed in a viscous scowl as she stared out of the doorway, brandishing her sword. "They are not of our world and they will not take you!"
More memories were flooding into the Doctor's head. Things were beginning to make sense as new knowledge settled in place, but the Doctor felt no better about it. He still couldn't make sense of what was happening, but yet he knew in his heart that he would soon and it would be terrible the moment he realised what was going on.
"Out of my way daughter!" The old man roared again and took a step forward to move her out the way, but before he could even lay a hand on her, Astrid turned on her heel and kicked him in the chest, sending him sprawling back to the ground. "You will not take him you beasts! He is my father and I will not have him taken from me!"
The beasts reply to her heroic plight was simple, cold and ruthless."EXTERMINATE"
The Doctor's face fell as the word rang through the room. There was a scream and a flash of light before Astrid's body lit up, her entire skeleton flashing neon green as all the life was extinguished from her body in one agonizing blast. She fell to the ground with a thud, her eyes rolled back in her head and her body limp and lifeless.
"No..." the Doctor whispered as he stared out at the creature that stood in the door way. A large blue metal machine, covered in silver spheres, with a plunger and a cannon for arms, and a large metal scope for an eye. It hummed as it floated into the room and observed the three of them with it's single eye, as if judging which one of them to kill next.
"No, no, no, NO! NO! NO! NO!" The Doctor yelled clutching his head between his hands as the gold fire burned his brain and brought back every foul memory of the creature before him; The Dalek, the killer of all, the great enemy of every living thing.
"WHY!?" The Doctor roared at it, getting to his feet and stumbling towards the turret like creature with a look of absolute hatred on his face. The look on his face was full of more rage than Robin would have ever seen on the Doctor's face. The Wire, the Slitheen, Greme Skindrad, none of them had inspired so much despair and hatred as the creature that stood before them. "WHY COULDN'T YOU JUST BE A BAD MEMORY? WHY DID YOU HAVE TO BE REAL?!"
