The Waters Of Mars

We were on Mars, the stranger and me. It took me some time to react. The view was stunning and Mars was too.

What is it with men that give names to their cars, tools and equipment? While we were running through the Forest, he mentioned his vehicle, which he kept calling ´Tardis´.
I expected not to encounter a very flashy sports-car, and prepared myself for a dubious usual brand.
´Where did you park your car?´
´Car?!´, he felt hugely offended at my remark.
´It´s got more gadgets than a car. I´ll show you´.
And so, thanks to his flying phonebox, mine ´Did you see the waters of Mars?´ and his ´Just a joyride around the block´, I ended on Mars.

´I don´t want to spoil the fun, but I´m in need of a doctor´, I told the stranger . My right eye was badly swollen and I had to cough a lot after all this waterboarding. For some reason it didn´t quite cool my senses.
´I´m the Doctor´, he mused. `I have this device´.
He waved with his Sonic Screwdriver.
´Yeah, right mate, I mean a proper doctor´.
I didn´t want that gadget near me.
´Well, I can take you to the past, the future or to a local hospital´, he quipped.
´Sometimes men amaze me´, I said in disbelief to his geekness.

The hospital looked outdated, but the service was fine. Especially the after care.
´Mind if I check your eyes?´ ´Oh, doctor!´

After a couple of days I was picked up by this stranger again for a treat. I was taken to Roman days. We had some minutes to stay with a gladiator called Spartacus in Blood and Sand.

That was some fella! 

He is forced to have brutal fighting everyday. This is extra bad, because it is in slow motion with a lot of blood spatter. His master quarrels with him. He longs for his woman, yet has to perform some steamingly hot, luscious ´duties´ to certain ladies in Roman houses to stay alive, and all the others out there behave as forbidden fruits. Overall, it is steamingly hot!!!
´Shall we go somewhere else?´. My companion was obviously bored.
´Not yet! Yes! This makes me think of some poor bloke. He was treated badly by his authorities, stood up for himself and is now a soldier in a desert. He tries to connect with his estranged daughter and his ex-wife. He is willing to undergo brutal fighting and to have steamingly hot, luscious ´duty-calls´. He is steamingly hot!!!´

Some poor bloke!

´Oh no! This is enough entertainment for you!´
The stranger grabbed my arm and dragged me into the Tardis.
´But, it´s all hearsay! I haven´t seen it yet!´, I protested.

The blood of men

A man must accept his fate or be destroyed by it...  Spartacus Blood

It´s not what you are, but what you appear to be...  Strike Back (SB)

1. After seeing the Spartacus´ trailer, this trailer needs re-editing: more romantic scenes.
2. Will there be a Bootcamp clip on the upcoming DVD?
