"I don't have it!" he says again panicked. 

Permalink

The Master steps towards him.

Permalink

He flings the laser at him and runs, breaking through the two of them and darting for the relative safety of the street. 

Permalink

The Master catches the laser and turns, raising it to point at the man's back. 

Permalink

Thea frowns and moves to block the action – "Please tell me you're not going to hurt him."

Permalink

"He stole my laser!"

Permalink

"At least don't kill him!"

Permalink

The thief slips away. 

Permalink

"What a shame!" she says, gesturing exasperatedly and giving him an annoyed look. She takes a breath, pausing, then continues: "What would that have helped?"

Permalink

"He stole. My. Laser."

Permalink

"Yes! So take it back and take him to a – I don't know – cosmic police officer!"

Permalink

"Cosmic police officer?"

Permalink

"I assume you must have some?" she asks, looking at him incredulously. "You don't just all run around – lawless, vigilante-style?"

Permalink

"Mostly, yes. Oh, there are laws here and there, but mostly they stick to their own little area."

Permalink

She shivers. "Then – you have a time machine, surely you don't need to shoot to kill."

Permalink

"Have to? No. Feel a burning desire for vengeance? Yes."

Permalink

She stares at him, slowly turning that over, and looking more and more horrified as she does so.

"Why?" she bursts out with. "You – you're strictly more powerful, he couldn't have harmed you!"

Permalink

"He stole my laster! I can't exactly get another one! Gallifrey is gone."

Permalink

"But – why hurt him? It'd take you minutes to just – go catch up, in time and location, and grab it out of his hands, you could get him later tonight, or –" She cuts herself off, gesturing her mixture of exasperation, horror and uncertainty.

Permalink

He shrugs.

"Habit?" he says, somewhat uncertainly.

Permalink

She looks at him incredulously. "What kind of a habit is that!"

Permalink

"One fueled by years of insanity."

Permalink

Deep breath in. "You never considered changing it?"

Permalink

"It must have slipped my mind."
