He’d waited over a century for the Doctor to come, imagining how it would be, travelling through space and time again with the two people he loved most, his Doctor and Rose.

Only it wasn’t like that. The Doctor came, but not for him. It wasn’t his Doctor, Rose was gone, and he spent a year chained and tortured, his dream turning into a nightmare.

And he promised himself if he made it home, he’d stay there forever.
