"Here," Ian said, handing Barbara an ornate cup.

She settled onto her throne, smiling. "I rather like you dressed like that. The beak is becoming."

He made an impatient noise from inside his elaborate headdress. "You're one to talk. Now drink up while it's still warm."

"What is it?"

"Cocoa. The Doctor told me to make you some, he was very particular. So there you go, genuine Aztec-style cocoa prepared by yours truly."

"Very thoughtful," she said. "Have you had any?"

He pulled off his headdress to gallantly accept a sip.

The Doctor snickered happily from behind a column.
