Claws of the Macra: Part I

Have you ever wanted to star in a Doctor Who story? Now’s your chance! Thanks to Dave T. and the magic of the “Decide Your Destiny” book Doctor Who: Claws of the Macra, this is your chance to help the Doctor and Amy deal with the problem of crabs! Giant ones!

I’ll set up the scene and then give you the options. Vote in the comments for what you folks want to do, and then we’ll take it from there.

Here goes! OOO-WEE-OOO!

Okay, so you’re part of a school group that is touring a huge gas refinery. At the center centre of the refinery is a big control tower, and a long tunnel goes from the parking lot car park to the reception area at the base of the tower, where you are. There are two teachers and about fifteen kids with you, and of course the refinery is packed with people.

Your tour group gets their visitor passes and starts to head off to begin this amazing school trip, but you, you clever child, you’ve noticed something nobody else seems to have: a door marked NO UNAUTHORIZSED ACCESS. And it’s been left open!


1) Stick with the tour group because this is a dangerous place.

2) Sneak off through the door because how dangerous can a giant gas refinery possibly be?

I’ll be back later to see what you want to do.

    2! 2!!!

    Two, of course!

  3. Matthew says:

    Yes, 2! 2 FTW!

  4. Dave says:

    guys maybe I have not emphasized the dangerousness of the gas refinery

  5. Wait, is this proper Doctor Who or is this a Sarah Jane Adventure? Because this is sounding a LOT more like a typical Sarah Jane outing (School trip? Hello?)

    If and when K-9 shows up, I shall rest my case…

    I’ve long suspected that Amy has crabs.

    I’m sure that Miss Hoover would throw a wobbly if I was to wander off. And besides, that gas refinery looks scary.

  7. Andrew Weiss says:

    #1, because I don’t want to miss out on any knowledge that may help me in my planned career as a BP engineer.

  8. Boyd says:

    #2 – The visitor passes will protect me from anything dangerous, I’m sure.

  9. Bully says:

    Before I make my decision I need to know a couple pieces of vital information: am I an exceptionally bright and beautiful child that no one understands and has the tendency to fall in love with clever authority-challenging figures who remind me of my missing father? If so, then, 2.

    Also, I probably oughta be a girl.
