"The Doctor, The Murderer"
An escape pod floats among the backdrop of a billion stars.
A little eight year old girl stares our of the circular
window on its side. She presses her head against it trying
to look back. Something lights up behind her. It’s a huge
explosion. Tears stroll down the girl’s piercing blue eyes.
She’s been crying before.
Inside of the ship, a man is standing in front of a large
round gate. He’s dressed in a dirty, slightly old suit. He’s
got a name tag on him. CAPT. J. HUDSON. He seems to be in
his mid-forties. There’s another mechanical whir and a green
light flickers on at the side of the gate, on a control
panel. The gate rolls to the side.
A little girl, steps out. She’s got a teddy bear tucked under her arms. Hudson approaches her and kneels down, looking into her sad, sad eyes. He puts his hand on her shoulder.
It’s alright, lil’ Alice. Uncle
Jim’s here. Uncle Jim’s always
going to be here.
C’mon, I’ll find you a spare room
and you can go get some shut eye.
Shut eye is good. Shut eye helps.
Hudson leads Alicia into a cold metallic room. A small bed
lies in the corner next to the window which looks out at the
darkness of space. Hudson tucks her and her teddy into bed.
He points to the bear and smiles. It’s that type of smile
Cute name. I’ve got to go do
something important now but don’t
worry. Everyone on this ship is
going to take good care of you.
Hudson turns off the lights and leaves the room. Alicia
closes her eyes to go to sleep. There seems to be a light in
the room turning on and off. Alicia opens her eyes again as
she hears a sound (Insert TARDIS sound). A blue box
materializes in front of her. Her eyes widen. It’s the same
blue box that was there when her dad died.
A man steps out of the box. An awkward man with awkward hair
and awkward clothes. It’s The DOCTOR. Alicia seems
frightened when she sees his face. She jumps out of bed and
moves as far away from him as possible.
He gets back into the TARDIS and it de-materializes. (TARDIS
sound) Alicia sits in the corner, crushing her teddy bear.
She has no idea what just happened but it was scary. That
This action might not be possible to undo. Are you sure you want to continue?
