Rose didn't know what to make of the dream. Daleks screamed "Ex-ter-min-ate!" and the Doctor regenerated over and over again; no surprises there. But it was more like a pantomime than a nightmare. An alien race that communicated by farting? The Sofa Of Reasonable Comfort? The Doctor getting engaged; wishful thinking perhaps? Then the Doctor regenerated into a woman and went off with her longtime enemy. That was the strangest part.

What did it mean? Who was the Master anyway? A symbol, or someone real? Another Time Lord, a fellow survivor?

Maybe the TARDIS was trying to tell her something.
