DWA15 14[]

Vastra approaches Strax and asks him to get Jenny's cat, Mittens, out of a tree. After considering using rockets or grenades, Strax decides to save the kitten with his Time Shark. He rides the shark through the time vortex to stop a squirrel from planting the acorn that would become the tree. He finds the squirrel which planted the acorn and the shark eats it. Back in Victorian London, Jenny is reaching for Mittens. Suddenly, the tree disappears beneath Mittens and she falls into Jenny's hands. Strax declares this to be another victory for the Sontaran empire.

Jenny has asked Strax to buy a pineapple from the greengrocer. As he leaves Paternoster Row, Vastra reminds him to disguise himself when going in public. Later, Vastra walks past the Grocers and sees Strax riding the Time Shark and wearing a top hat. She scolds him for not wearing a disguise, but he claims that wearing a hat is a disguise.

DWA15 16[]

Strax finds a mouse in the kitchen and asks Vastra if he can use his grenades to get rid of it. When she says no, he asks if he can use lasers instead. After another no, he asks if he can use the Sontaran slime shooter, but Vastra says that that would be too loud. Strax asks if he can blow it just a little bit and Vastra once again says no.
