Chapter 242: Substitute
Author's Notes: Written for Challenge 204: Nuts at dw100.

Summary: What can the Doctor do when he runs out of his favourite nibble?

The Doctor dug in one of his capacious coat pockets, finally pulling out a crumpled paper bag and starting to open it. “Would you care for a jelly… oh.” He turned the bag upside down and shook it. Nothing. It was empty.

Screwing the bag up again, he shoved it back in his pocket and rummaged around in the other one, his arm disappearing to the elbow, then tried the first pocket again.

“I could have sworn I had some more. Oh well.” He pulled out a small, square packet and tore it open. “Would you care for some nuts?”
