The Doctor Who Drabble Files by badly_knitted
Chapter 695: Impressive
Author's Notes: Written for Challenge 628: Figure at dw100.

Summary: No matter what, somehow the Doctor still manages to look impressive.

With his impressive height, smart attire, bushy eyebrows, and intense, hawklike stare, the Doctor cut an imposing figure, especially since none of the inhabitants of this planet were more than three and a half feet tall, meaning that for once Clara wasn’t the shortest person in the room.

The Doctor looked a lot less imposing, however, once they were inside the village elder’s home and he was squatting awkwardly on one of the small chairs in the low-ceilinged room. He reminded her absurdly of a grasshopper, his knees practically up around his ears, and yet he still commanded everyone’s attention.
