"Where are we this time Professor?" A brown haired woman asked as she stepped out of blue phone box that harkened back to the 1950's.
"Well Ace, this is Sunnydale California about four years before it's destroyed." Her companion answered as he stepped out behind her. "I'd thought I would bring you here after our recent adventure in Gabriel Chase."
"What for? A nice and relaxing vacation after you tricked me into going inside that haunted house again?"
"Not at all, Ace. Gabriel Chase might have been a haunted house, but Sunnydale is a haunted town. Besides that, the legends about this town have always fascinated me."
"Professor, why did we have to climb to the roof of this building?" Ace panted as she tried to catch her breath. "The only thing you can really see from here is that school."
"Preciously!" The Doctor shouted. "As I told you this town is destroyed in four years time. The accepted theory has always been that a freak earthquake collapsed never discovered underground caverns and sucked the town in a sinkhole. That theory has always sounded a tad off to me. I always meant to come investigate the town personally and I thought you might like this particular time."
Why's that Professor?"
"Because Ace in about half an hour's time, that school will light up from a gas main explosion."
"I have to admit, I never expected this."
"What Professor? The fifty foot snake? The eclipse? Those things with the deformed faces? The students fighting the snake and those things? What didn't you expect Doctor?"
"Pretty much all of it Ace. No wonder everything I ever read on this town said it was haunted. But tell me one thing Ace?"
"What did you think of the explosion?"
"Brilliant. Just brilliant."
