This is a message for our captors, but anyone else is free to listen. I'm not that bothered, really. It's our hosts I need to speak with, but everyone here is involved so you may as well hear this,
[He pauses, and his normally amiable smile vanishes. Those who know him well will be able to see the cold, slow burning anger on his face.]
So this is how you do things. You take us from our homes--you claim you rescued us. You lie. I know you're lying. Rescuers--heroes, do not lock up the ones they help. They do not imprison them. They do not lock them in a tower of horrors. Why? I understand that you could have reason for taking some of us. Horrible, awful reasons, but there is one thing I cannot excuse.
The involvement of children.
You've taken children away from their homes, families, friends, lives. You've gone and placed them here, in a dangerous place, with no one who can protect them.
And then. And then. [His voice gets louder] And then you make them disappear! Adults too. Where have you taken them? What happened? You can tell me now, or I can find out for myself.
Because I will find out. I always find out. I always know and I always remember. I never forget. Ever. One day, I will find out and remember and know and you will not enjoy it. I am beginning to get angry, very angry. You have no idea what you've brought down upon yourselves. You have no idea how much you should fear the day I know and remember. I don't know what will happen that day. All I know is that it will come.
And you will be wishing it hadn't. Everyone will know. People will tell stories. Stories of a Doctor who saved everyone and of those unlucky enough to face his anger. By then, you'll be just a story. A memory. There will be nothing left but that. You will just be another in the long line I've left behind.
Return those you've taken and don't --do not even think about taking anyone else. Don't even think about it. For every person you take and then disregard--
[He stops and breathes, calming himself a little. His next words are quiet, but still firm]
...I am The Doctor, and you ought to quit while you're ahead. For your own sake.
Now, if anyone is hurt or needs anything, anything at all, I will do everything in my power to help and protect them. Do not hesitate to ask for my assistance. I promise that until I get us out of here, I will do my very best to help each and every one of you.
