The Doctor Who Drabble Files by badly_knitted
Chapter 116: Starting Over
Author's Notes: Written for Challenge 100: Fresh Start at dw100.

Summary: The Doctor finally feels ready to take on a new companion.

Somehow, the Doctor always seems to gravitate back to Earth; he often wonders why he’s so drawn to the planet and her people. Maybe it’s because humans seem to need his help more often than other races; after all, aliens do target them a lot.

So he’s back here yet again, and so are the Autons, causing trouble as usual. This time a young shop assistant has been caught up in their schemes. After so long alone, it feels good to have someone running beside him once more.

Maybe it’s time to make a fresh start, with a new companion.

The End
