Tomorrow's Fish and Chips was a short story published in Into the Unknown.
Summary[edit | edit source]
Ibrahim returned home after a trip to the destruction of the Crystal Palace in 1936 with Habitat. He shows Helena a copy of the Daily Mirror he's brought from 1936. Later, when Ibrahim is showering to get rid of the the smell of smoke, Helena switches the Daily Mirror with a copy of the Daily Express from the same day, hoping Ibrahim won't notice. Her reason: the second page of that day's Daily Mirror had a photograph of a woman greeting Jewish refugees to London, a woman who looked exactly Helena.

The Eleventh Doctor, Amy Pond and Rory Williams came to the Palace at this time, although they had intended to visit it in 1851, and met up with Winston Churchill.
