Recced because: I must admit I haven't seen the serial The Masque of Mandragora, where the subject of the Doctor's boot cupboard is first broached. Luckily it wasn't an issue, because not even complete lack of knowledge of the canon context could stop me snorting with laughter all the way through this story.

"One often thinks of very strange things when awaiting one's death," Sarah said, with just a hint of sadness.

The Doctor went back to the telescope. "Don't be silly, Sarah. I wouldn't have let you die."

"It's not a matter of letting," Sarah replied tartly. "Anyhow, I suppose that's why I was thinking of the boot cupboard. I didn't really think I was going to die, and I needed to pass the time."
