Summary: The TARDIS contains the Doctor’s whole existence, but something’s missing.

The TARDIS is huge, which is fortunate because the Doctor’s been to so many places and times, and souvenirs do pile up. It’s not just the souvenirs either; there’s useful stuff too, clothes in every style and every size, handy gadgets he’s invented, a whole room stuffed with confiscated weapons, and of course plenty of tea. That’s an absolute necessity because some places it’s hard to get and nothing’s better than a nice cup of tea.

So here he is, in a TARDIS stuffed to the brim with everything he could want, and yet without Rose, it just seems empty.
