Summary[edit | edit source]

It is December 31, 1986. Ben and Polly are meeting in a hotel room to reminisce about their experience at the Snowcap space tracking station in Antarctica. While Ben waits for Polly to arrive, he watches the news for any mention of Mondas' approach. Polly arrives, and while there is an awkward moment, they soon begin recalling their adventures and their friends, the Doctor and Jamie. Ben speculates that various organisations may have hushed up the events of Snowcap. They part ways, ready to face the new year.
