Clive stared at the skeleton standing before him.
IF YOU'D COME THIS WAY, PLEASE?
"Who are you?" Clive said.
ME? the skeleton said. I'M THE DOCTOR'S TRAVELLING COMPANION.
"...Death," Clive whispered.
Death nodded. IF YOU'D LIKE TO COME WITH ME?
"What about my wife? And my son?"
I'M SORRY, MR FINCH. Death said quietly. WE HAVE TO GO.
SOMEWHERE THE DOCTOR HAS NEVER BEEN, Death said. ARE YOU WILLING TO COME?
"What the hell. Somewhere even /he/ hasn't been. That's gotta be worth seeing."
He took Death's hand.
And then they were gone.
Summary: After you've discovered the truth... what then?
