The one with rubbish rain g-ϟϟϟϟ-GAAAAH! N.. n-n-n-nevermind!! They're really quite lovable chaps up there (please don't kill us)! Remember that, everyone!! ϟ YEOW! What was that for?

Alright, alright, we'll get on with the recap! Impatient little ϟϟϟϟϟ-AHAOWW!! Right... guess they hate swearing too... makes sense...

One of the three minisodes released with the Series 7 DVD, along with "The Inforarium" and "Clara and the TARDIS".

It was written by Neil Gaiman (and not, as credited, Steven Moffat) and it is a rewrite of a scene originally from "The Doctor's Wife", which also appeared as a short comic featuring Amy and Rory instead of River.


River and the Doctor are in one of their date nights. Not the best, since they're about to be sacrificed to the local Rain Gods.

They bicker a bit, and the Doctor assures River that he really, totally has a plan. Creating a distraction and running away. Which River thinks is not much of a plan.

But then the Doctor smells something — ozone. Thunder rumbles, the Doctor taunts the Rain Gods (to the horror of the locals), and crouches on the ground with River. Lightning strikes the two standing locals. The Doctor pulls an umbrella out of nowhere as it starts to rain. Delighted, both run away.

The final shot is of the TARDIS parked in the rain, while the Doctor and River are heard, bickering still.
