Heinkel’s Austrian, so she has a good grasp of its history. Fortunately, Emma and William don’t. (Cut them some slack; it’s 1897. They have no idea how important Austria-Hungary will be in about seventeen years.)
And so, later, at the Jones mansion:
William: …and then Austria-Hungary is Wilhelm’s lap dog…
Integra: Don’t get into it, Heinkel.
Heinkel: But they can’t talk about Austria-Hungary like that! It can’t help needing an ally. Its military is so weak and it’s next to Russia. If Germany’s the only country that will back it up, then…
William: Oh, how cute! Look at you, trying to talk about international politics with the adults! Isn’t it just so sweet, Emma?
Integra: On second thought…never mind. Carry on.
If you have a copy of Dracula, flip to this page and follow along!
Yomiko: Renfield, quoted in Dr. Seward’s diary, 3 October 1897: “I heard the dogs bark behind our house, but not where he was!”
We’re there. In the middle of Dracula. “He” is, at this moment, out in front of this building!
The reason why it was the Sixth Doctor who appeared: he’s just gone through the events of the serial Timelash, in which the real Herbert George Wells (pictured) travels on the TARDIS.
And, for good measure, inside the TARDIS:
Doctor: And that’s that.
Young H. G. Wells: Was that England? It looked like England.
Doctor: Yes. We took a slight detour. That was England a few years after your time.
Wells: This is all so exciting! Time travel, I mean.
Doctor: And you’re not getting any more of it, Herbert. Our next stop is to put you back where you belong.
Wells: That’s all right, I’ve learned so much already. Do you know, I think I may write a book!
This is of course Colin Baker, the Sixth Doctor.
Doctor: I have things to do, so I’ll make this quick.
One. There’s a temporal paradox rapidly developing here, or else you crazy kids would be getting no help from me. Two, the vampire is right. The reason you’re losing age is that you’re becoming increasingly less likely to exist. Amateurs should never attempt serious time travel!
Integra: It was unintentional.
Doctor: Exactly my point. Three, go to dinner. That’s all.
Integra: Who was that?
Alucard: The Doctor.
Heinkel: “Doctor” who?
