1. Prologue [Reviews - 3] (1245 words)
Grieving, lonely, and bored, the Doctor asks the TARDIS to take him somewhere, anywhere, where he can have a bite to eat and someone to talk to. He doesn't understand why she brings him to an empty beach in England, until he hears something totally out of place and time for the 21st century. This story is the start of my series Six Points and TARDIS Blue, but it can also be read as a standalone meeting between the Doctor and Rachel. ‘Shanah Tovah’ translates as ‘Good Year’ in Hebrew, basically it means Happy New Year.

2. Chapter 1: Meeting and Memory [Reviews - 2] (2564 words)
The Doctor identifies the source of the anachronism, but then finds himself confronting the memory of loss and grief.

3. Chapter 2: Bananas, Munchies, God, and Ghosts [Reviews - 0] (2439 words)
Rachel and the Doctor share a meal, and discuss theology.

4. Chapter 3: In love with a ghost [Reviews - 1] (2381 words)
Rachel has more to think about then just the New Year, and she might as well take advantage of a sympathetic stranger to get some perspective on a difficult relationship.

6. Epilogue [Reviews - 2] (1346 words)
The Doctor reflects on his meeting with Rachel, and finds a measure of comfort in her words.
