Part 5: Rattus and Dave remove Blenkinsop's power, and are now back at the time-sewer console room ...


Several hours later, Dave finished attaching the light back to the ceiling, and sighed in relief, clambering back down off the chair.

"Much better," he said brightly, looking round the now tidy console-room. Books were picked up and on the shelves, the place was swept, shelves fixed, consoles fixed, and -

He looked at the wooden crate perched on the table (still stamped for Siberia) and sighed again - his smile disappearing.

"Rattus?"

There was no reply.

Dave rubbed his eyes, walking over and sitting at the table, acutely aware of how covered in muck he was compared to the now clean console room.

"Rattus, everything's tidy now so you can go look at the Middle Ages from your perch! That'll be fun, trying to guess what disgusting thing you can pull from that time-period as a prize, won't it ..."

His voice trailed off, and a quiet mumble was heard from inside the crate.

"They're dead Dave."

Dave started to speak, and shut his mouth, sighing.

"Everyone dies Rattus," he said eventually, and Rattus poked his head out of the crate.

"We could have stopped it."

"Rattus - he didn't need it, remember?"

Rattus glared at him.

"Not the point Dave! We've fought off zombies before, we could do it again!"

"It wouldn't have been zombies Rattus; it would have been the collapse of history and time."

Rattus scrunched himself into a ball, mumbling his reply.

"It's not fair Dave."

Dave looked at the console, and inspiration struck him.

"Look - give me two minutes Rattus," he said, quickly heading over to the console and tapping out a few commands. A video started playing, and a smile appeared on his face.

Quickly heading back to Rattus, he spoke.

"Rattus - yes, they will be dead by now, but just come and look at this. Please."

Rattus looked up.

"At what Dave?"

Dave gestured to the console, and Rattus looked curiously at it.

Jumping down to the floor, he padded over, clambering up the book-staircase and peering at the screen.

A moment later, he turned to face Dave, the sullen look from before replaced by a look of wonder.

"Dave - is - is that?"

Dave nodded, coming and standing at Rattus' shoulder.

"1928. Their home village."

He looked at Rattus, speaking again.

"They did make it through."

Rattus kept looking at the screen as he spoke.

"Dave - can we have the sound on?"

Dave obliged, and the sound of birds singing and laughter filled the air.

"Come on old bean, if I can keep up with Rover, so can you!" said Maltravers jokingly.

"That's because you enjoy running as fast as a train," retorted Blenkinsop, a grin on his face as he caught up with Maltravers and a collie dog, quickly picking up a stick and throwing it for him.

"Fetch, Rover!" he said, and the collie pelted off - skidding slightly on the ground.

Blenkinsop and Maltravers laughed, leaning on each other as the dog completely ran past the stick, their grins as bright as the summer sunshine.

Dave grinned, and Rattus looked at him.

"They really did make it Dave!" he said, his grin wide, and Dave patted Rattus on the head.

"Yes, Rattus, they did."

After a moment spent watching the two of them walking on, their laughter filling the console room, Rattus spoke again.

"So, we saved the universe."

"We did."

"And it wasn't my fault."

Dave rolled his eyes.

"No, Rattus, it wasn't."

"Just wanted to check Dave, just wanted to check," replied Rattus, and Dave laughed, leaning against the console.

"Of course - nothing to do with the victory parade you're now going to ask the BBC for is it."

"Well," said Rattus with a grin, "we did just save the universe. We could even ask for a pay-rise!"

At that, Rattus and Dave's laughter mixed with the laughter coming from 1928 - and Dave finally began to relax.

"By the way Dave, I should probably tell you something."

Dave raised an eyebrow.

"What is it Rattus?" he said, a smile on his face.

"I ... mayhaveletthevelociraptoroutoftheCretaceousEra. And I might have accidently sent it to Ancient Rome."

"Sorry?" he said after a moment.

Dave pinched the bridge of his nose.

"Rattus!"
