Game 26 Round 5 lines

Things slipped a bit last night, so I will ask for your votes in the final round by early tomorrow morning European time / late Saturday night US time - ie by 0800 Central Europe, 0700 UK/Ireland, 0200 Eastern, 2300 West Coast. Apologies for the delay. As I mentioned back at the beginning, I have a business trip starting tomorrow and preparations for it rather dominated my day yesterday.

Anyway, the lines proposed for Doctor Who - The Reign of Terror are:
  1. "I must say I'm rather fond of our next destination," the Doctor said.
  2. It felt like the city was holding its breath.
  3. It was a planet shrouded in fog.
  4. It was late in the last July that France would see for many years.
  5. "My dear Chesterton, I know precisely what I'm doing and if you disbelieve me, look out of the doors and you will, without doubt, see Brighton Pavillion!"
  6. The cart rolled slowly to the guillotine.
  7. The twilit forest was hot and muggy.
  8. "This doesn't look like Bali," the Doctor said in surprise.

Which of these was written by Ian Marter?

Any guess as to who wrote any of the others?
