The Doctor Who Drabble Files by badly_knitted
Chapter 464: Opening Night
Author's Notes: Written for Challenge 414: Gilbert and Sullivan at dw100.

Summary: The Doctor has a real treat in store for Donna.

“Seriously?” Donna stared up at the marquee in disbelief. “Gilbert and Sullivan? You brought us all this way to see that? I thought you were takin’ me to see something new!”

“The Pirates of Penzance is a classic, and I’ve got tickets for the first night!”

“That’s psychic paper, sunshine.”

“It’ll still get us in. Don’t you want to see the very first performance of one of the most famous operettas in the universe?”

“Well, we’re here now, we might as well.” Donna looped her arm through the Doctor’s. “We should’ve brought Gramps. He’d ‘ave loved it!”

“Maybe next time.”
