Captain Jack emerges onto nothing, and unwraps the champagne; Rose, wigged, comes out after with two glasses. They are standing in front of the face of Big Ben. Rose laughs and nervously mumbles, "I'm standing on something..." He chuckles and flicks a switch on some other wonderful device, and the ship appears under their feet. Rose is hilarious: "Okay. You have an invisible spaceship. Tethered up to Big Ben, for some reason." He says that the first rule of "active camouflage" is to park somewhere you'll remember. Captain Jack pops the cork, and Rose gasps, and he laughs and fills their glasses.
Less debonair: Limehouse. Nancy hurries across train tracks, into a house where she starts with the bag of food. She feels the Doctor watching her from the doorway, and turns: "How'd you follow me here?" She's wearing a cloak, kind of, and carrying food, right? "I'm good at following, me. Got the nose for it," says the Doctor. Nancy is suspicious, and says that people can't usually follow her if she doesn't want them to. "My nose has special powers," says the Doctor, and she very nearly tells him what a big nose he has. He pushes, but she won't tell him, teasing, "Nothing! Do your ears have special powers too?" He's very calm: "What're you trying to say?" What big ears you have! Why The Doctor, I think you've just been Bad Wolfed for this episode. "Goodnight, Mister," she says, ending the conversation and possibly (I'm told) making reference to a weird playground game called "What's the Time, Mr. Wolf?" Which I like, because of the "time" aspect. I dunno, though. I just know it's dinner time. Nancy turns away, and the Doctor presses her: "Nancy. There's something chasing you and the other kids. Looks like a boy and it isn't a boy, and it started about a month ago, right?" Yes. He keeps asking. "There was a bomb," she admits. "A bomb that wasn't a bomb. Fell the other end of Limehouse Green Station." He tells her to take him, and she warns him that there are soldiers and barbed wire guarding it. "You'll never get through," she says, earning the usual response from the Doctor: "Try me!" She tells him to go see the doctor first, and he laughs to himself about how confusing it all is.
