"Just the Doctor, if you don't mind."

Admittedly, it's not much of a name, but it's his and that's all that really matters. Even if it makes him sound terribly odd. On the other hand, it's not long at all before he's stepping around behind her and undoing the rope binding her wrists.

And then, he's heading right back to where he'd been before, putting the length of rope into one of his pockets as a sort of distracted afterthought. He'll probably forget it's there too, given enough time, but the general implication is clear enough. Whoever he might be and however strange he might be, he means her no harm. Nor will he let any harm come to her, although that isn't something that's immediately visible. On the other hand, the door she'd come in is closed, for now, and he doesn't seem to be at all inclined to ask her to leave.

"But no, I don't. Or at least, don't blame you for not believing it. I mean, I'm sure they've had to notice a big blue box in the middle of one of the dungeons. But I don't think they've figured out that anyone's in it. Well, anyone apart from you, anyway. And they probably weren't expecting it to look quite like this on the inside either."

Most people aren't, the first time they step through the doors.
