The Doctor Who Drabble Files by badly_knitted
Chapter 56: How It Begins
Author's Notes: Written for Challenge 048: Beginning at dw100.

Posting early today because I'll be at the hospital for tests at the time I usually post and I don't know when I'll be able to get back online.

Spoilers: Smith And Jones.

Summary: Martha’s life is about to change dramatically.

For Martha, it begins in the most extraordinary way possible. The whole of the Royal Hope Hospital, with all its staff and patients, is ripped from the ground and deposited on the moon. It’s incredible, unbelievable, has to be some sort of mass hallucination because if it’s real, why aren’t they all dead from the vacuum of space?

They almost do die, because there’s not an unlimited supply of oxygen and over time the air gets bad. But a man calling himself the Doctor saves the day then invites her to travel with him.

Extraordinary? She hasn’t seen anything yet!

The End
