The Doctor’s Plan – Prelude

“The Doctor has tired of the Gremlin.  It will not interact with him and makes no effort to communicate; not even eye contact.  Marley is afraid of the Gremlin and the Doctor’s bi-monthly nest cleaner will not clean the Doctor’s office any more. Even Angela seems to imperceptivity turn away from the Gremlin’s cage.

Here are a few facts I learned about the Gremlin by way of Marley’s mind.

The Gremlin’s real name is Mike.  He has used Rocky, Mr. Imp and Adolf as aliases over the past 90 years. It is male, has never known a female Gremlin, and is afraid of hamsters.  He likes to work alone and is especially talented in mechanical disruption.  Until the digital age he thought his work in aircraft malfunction was his crowning achievement.  He won several awards for his activities during World War II.  But the advent of computers, the internet and digital data transfer has given him a new calling.  Mike has embraced it with enthusiasm.  What a windfall.  Disrupting electronic data processing is so easy for Mike. He rejoioced, “Easy Street, now and forever”!

That was of course, until Marley and Cleo caught him.
