The only sound in the TARDIS library was her background hum and the rustle of pages being turned until Martha Jones straightened up from the book she'd been poring over for the past hour and groaned. The Doctor looked up from his place on the far side of a table that was strewn with books, notes and maps.
"OK?" he asked in concern.
"Yeah, just stiff and a bit achy. I've got out of the habit of spending long hours studying since I started travelling with you. I forgot that I should move regularly to stop my muscles from seizing up." She rubbed gingerly at the back of her neck, wincing.
The Doctor looked at his copious notes, scrawled on several sheets of paper, and Martha's more meticulous ones. "I think we've done enough for today. Why don't you go and have a shower or bath to ease your muscles and I'll bring you a mug of hot chocolate in a little while?"
Martha looked over at him in surprise. Since when did the Doctor make her mugs of hot chocolate? Still, she wasn't going to turn down his offer.
