“This is full scale war. Wirrn and humankind locked in a deadly struggle for survival. When did that happen?”
The Doctor and Lucie land right in the middle of one of the human race’s bloodiest periods of history. Trying to make a difference here would be like standing up and calling for a cease-fire on the Somme. Certain death…
