Written for Challenge 424: Puzzle Pieces at dw100.
Summary: The Doctor loves having an interesting puzzle to solve.
Mysteries were like jigsaw puzzles, and the Doctor loved puzzles of all kinds; there was so much satisfaction to be found in figuring out the solution!
Of course, mysteries were much harder to solve than jigsaw puzzles. For a start you never had a picture to show what you were working towards. Not only that, before you could figure out the solution you had to find all the pieces, and almost inevitably during your search you’d find lots of pieces that belonged to other puzzles and had nothing to do with yours, making mysteries even more fun to figure out.
