The Doctor Who Drabble Files by badly_knitted
Chapter 238: In Trouble
Author's Notes: Written for Challenge 202: Miscreant at dw100.

Summary: The Doctor has an uncanny knack for landing himself in trouble.

The Doctor’s been called many things by many people during his centuries of travel. Some have been flattering, others, like the Oncoming Storm, have passed into legend, but most have been somewhat insulting. ‘Miscreant’ is one of the milder ones.

He doesn’t set out to break laws or get into trouble; he simply can’t resist meddling. If something’s unjust, he has to set it right, and if there’s a mystery to unravel, he has to be first to unravel it. Why shouldn’t he? He’s brilliant!

Sadly, the locals don’t always see things his way, so now he’s in jail.
