Oh, he's realized. Or at least, realized that it might have been meant as one. But he's willing to offer the benefit of the doubt, and in any case he knows very well that he really would be a strange old man in a beaten up old box, if not for the company of his companions. So if she finds him odder than most it's not really much of a surprise.

Somewhat less fortunately, he's too busy with making sure that they're on course and that they manage to come through the interference without any sort of adverse effects to catch all of her comment. In fact, it's only after she's started to move that he seems to realize that she's making for the door.

"No, wait!"

The comment comes too late, even as he's hurrying back around the console and towards the door - he hasn't so much as touched the door controls, but the TARDIS herself has already taken care of that. By the time Maribelle gets there, the doors are open wide revealing the whole of the Vortex stretching out before them. And safe it almost certainly isn't

On the other hand, without him working at the controls, their flight smooths momentarily. Even if he is a little concerned about the fact that the doors are open mid-flight.
