THE STORY SO FAR: You are a kid on a class field trip to a huge gas refinery. You’ve discovered, along with The Doctor and Amy, that there are giant crab monsters called Macra in the plant. A scientist named Professor Greif has been studying the aliens, and you all narrowly escaped one of them. Now you’ve met up with soldiers from UNIT who are hiding out near the GasTech operation.
Professor Greif is lying.
A UNIT trooper steps forward and claims the Professor is lying. He WAS a UNIT advisor, but he defected to GasTech and started experimenting on the Macra. The soldier claims Greif is a traitor to the human race.
They arrest him and haul him off. The soldier then announces that you, the Doctor, and Amy are also going to be arrested…for interfering with the Macra.
It turns out that GasTech and the Macra have come to an arrangement. In exchange for sanctuary, the Macra will happily eat all the toxic by-products of the gas plant. It’s a win-win situation!
“Excuse me…,” the Doctor begins.
1) The Doctor approves of this deal.
2) The Doctor opposes this deal.
I think it’s best if we don’t think too hard about where the Professor fits in to all of this.
