Author's Note: This is quick ‘n’ dirty (for definition see the F. A. Q.).

I couldn’t help myself after watching Let’s Kill Hitler.

The Doctor sits on a chair near the console, his hands folded in his lap. “Bring her back,” he quietly asks.

Amelia Pond appears. “Voice interface enabled.”

“No, not Amelia!”

“I am not Amelia Pond. I am a voice interface.”

“Oh, you’re so Scottish,” he dismisses. “Bring her back.


Amelia vanishes from view. Martha Jones leans against the edge of the console, arms folded.

“No, not also guilt. Nor,” he holds up a finger, “more guilt. Bring her back.”

A disconsolate hum echoes around him.

“Oh, don’t be like that, Sexy, but,” he looks sadly at the console and the see-through Martha, “you know I love her.”

A blonde girl appears in place of Martha.

He leans forward in the chair, his hands dangling between his knees with fingers entwined. “Rose Tyler,” he smiles.

“I am not Rose Tyler. I am a voice interface.”

“I know all that,” he dismisses flippantly but the sadness in his eyes belies his voice. “Did we run, Rose Tyler? Did we—”

“I am not Rose Tyler. I am a voice interface.”

He sits back in his chair in disgust. His face falls into his hands, his hair falling through his fingers.


He sharply looks up and at her, eyes wide. “And then?”

“I am not Rose Tyler. I am a voice interface.”

He stands suddenly, walks over to the interface and reaches gentle fingers to her cheek. Of course, his fingers slide through the projection. “I know. I know,’ he sighs as his hand falls away. “But did we run?”


His gaze rises (it had fallen after his question) and meets the unflinching eyes of the voice interface; he knows Rose would never look at him like that.


“You may go,” he whispers and then spins to face the approaching redhead with a wide smile, resting both hands on the console. “What is it, Pond? Can’t you see I’m busy?” He twiddles a knob by his left hand.

“Who were you talkin’ to?” She asks as she comes up the steps, red hair sliding over a shoulder as she tilts her head.

“To my girl, if you must know, but my question remains: what do you want, Pond?”

She folds her arms. “Don’t be rude. I won’t take up much of your private time with the TARDIS. I’ve just come to remind you bunk beds are not cool.”

“Yes they are!” He slides on the edge of the console, stopping in front of her. “They’ve got ladders and there’s more than one!”

“Bunk beds,” Amy patiently repeats, her arms folded, “are not cool. Except,” she adds, “to you.”

He hears Rory yelp. “Run back to your husband, Pond, and be the boringest of boring in your non-ladder bed.” He flips a random switch.

“Thank you!” She leans over and kisses his cheek. He looks down, suddenly intensely interested in the console. There’s a hug he feels but not sees and then he’s alone.

He looks to the ceiling. “Are you happy?”


“Just so long as you remember he’s not me,” he replies and pets the console. “So, where shall we go, Sexy?” He whispers. “I can’t go anywhere without you.”

... Him and his bunk beds.

One thing that's always bugged me about the Doctor; is he never thinks about his old companions. Ten did on occasion; like when he was visiting Scotland and he used the name of 'Doctor James McCrimmon'; and obviously when Sarah turned up. But, despite the fact he'd outlive them all, I just don't think he'd totally forget about them.

Part of me thinks the voice interface works better written than visualised; as you can bring back companions that have changed too much; or are dead even, with the written word. Because if the Doctor wanted 'no guilt'; Jo Grant, Leela or Romana are probably the best. Maybe not Romana due to the timelord factor.

... Him and his bunk beds.
I couldn't help the bunk bed reference!

is he never thinks about his old companions.
I believe he does but since it'd be a quiet moment, so to speak, you'd not see it on the show which shows the action but not the quiet as much.

Maybe not Romana due to the timelord factor.
Romana might be 'loads of guilt' due to being a Time Lord.
