Part 1: April
by Chris Chibnall
The Doctor leaves a voicemail for Amy and Rory, checking in and recounting his latest adventures: escaping from a troop of Sontarans by surfing the Firefalls of Floridel IX; enjoying a spot of crumpet with Mata Hari in a Paris hotel room; laying down backing vocals for a rap-song with Dizzee Rascal; and then colliding with ancient Greece. Listening to the message, the unimpressed Ponds toast their friend over a glass of wine...
