The Doctor Who Drabble Files by badly_knitted
Chapter 193: The Massacre
Author's Notes: Written for Challenge 174: First Doctor Titles at dw100.

Spoilers: Army of Ghosts/Doomsday, through Torchwood’s eyes.

Summary: Jack arrives at Torchwood Tower and views the destruction.

People were already calling it the Battle of Canary Wharf, the deluded fools, but Jack knew better; the word ‘battle’ implied that either side could’ve won, but that hadn’t been the case. No, there was no battle here. It had been nothing less than a massacre.

The humans, outnumbered, outgunned, and without a hope in hell of defending themselves, were mown down by Daleks and torn apart by Cybermen, converted wholesale and then used as little more than cannon fodder.

All because Yvonne Hartman wanted more power for the Empire.

Jack had no pity for her; she deserved her fate
