Doctor Who Drabble: Lost Skills

Title: Lost Skills
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Twelfth Doctor, Clara.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 207: Sink / Swim at dw100.
Spoilers: Nada.
Summary: In gaining new skills, sometimes the Doctor loses a few as well…
Disclaimer: I don’t own Doctor Who, or the characters.





Regenerating into a new body was always something of a lottery; each body was different, and came with its own unique set of physicals skills. For instance, his second body could play the recorder, his third knew martial arts, his fifth was good at cricket, and his Eleventh excelled at football. It was always fun discovering previously unknown talents.


The problem came not from discovering the new skills he’d gained, but finding out at the worst possible moment which ones he’d somehow lost along the way.


“Clara! Help!”


“What’s wrong?”


“I don’t think this body knows how to swim yet!”



The End

I wonder how many times the Twelfth Doctor felt that way? Lucky he can still manage to have a big ego.:)
Out of his depth? Probably quite a lot, but I imagine it's the same every time he regenerates. He's just good at blustering his way through any situation.

Thank you!
Twelfth Doctor: One question. Do you happen to know how to fly this thing?*refers to TARDIS*

Did he ever?.:)

Considering he has the parking brake on all the time, I'd say no...

:D
Great drabble
Thank you!
