Pete's Universe: Owen and the Doctor (with Tosh) WHO: Owen, the human Doctor WHERE: Torchwood WHEN: Directly after this. WHAT: Owen's there to investigate the alien virus, gets a surprise. RATING: PG/PG-13?
Owen was going to say goodbye to Tosh, as he normally went out of his way to do when he was leaving work, but he couldn't find her. Perhaps she was away from her desk, or in the loo, or out for a late lunch. Either way, he felt a small swell of disappointment as he gathered his medical supplies and left his desk.
It didn't take him long to find the Doctor; he hadn't officially met him yet or anything, but someone pointed him in the right direction along the way. Apart from his usual white coat, he had a pathogen-filtration mask for his own protection. It sounded like it was an airborne pathogen. Best not to take any unnecessary risks.
He knocked on a door, waiting outside it for an answer.
