Doctor Who Drabble: Ginger

Title: Ginger
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Tenth Doctor, Donna Noble.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 215: Red / Blue at dw100.
Spoilers: Nada.
Summary: The Doctor wishes his hair was red.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Doctor Who, or the characters.

The Doctor loved Donna Noble, she was smart, feisty, brave, funny, and generally amazing in every way, but he also envied her, because she had something he wanted; red hair.

Here he was, well into his tenth regeneration, and his hair had been dark brown, light brown, blond, even white, but never red. He’d wanted to be ginger for ages, but sadly had no idea how to influence what he would look like after regenerating; it was all a bit random.

Still, the next best thing to being ginger was travelling with one. He was having the best fun ever!

The End


And that is why Donna was brought into the TARDIS instead of the other way around.:)
She fits the Doctor's needs in many ways ;)

He still wants ginger hair himself though.

She sure does!

I guess he should have dyed his hair.

Maybe hair dye doesn't work on Time Lords, or they're allergic to something in it...

Yes, that must be it. Romana went from a brunette to a blonde when she regenerated. She was suppose to be better at controlling her regenerations than the Doctor. I remember she changed a few times before settling on looking like Princess Astra.
Some Time Lords must have talent in that area while others don't. The Doctor I think is too impatient to work out how to control what he looks like after regeneration.

Okay. It would have been interesting if they had put the changing gender thing when Romana regenerated.
Yeah, I think I'd be more comfortable with it if it had happened before.

Its like the River Song storyline. Something that was not explored before on the show. Someone who knew the Doctor before he knew them.
The tardis couldnt make the Doctor ginger so it did the next best thing.

great drabble.
Good theory!

Thank you!
Yup, I'm a firm believer that the TARDIS knew and sent the Doctor a Ginger. He did look like he really enjoyed his time with her. Both of them positively glowed from being in each other's company.
It was a friendship match made in heaven - or by TARDIS. She can be quite the matchmaker when she tries.

Thank you!
She sent him exactly who he needed at the time... a friend first!
I think that's true. I'm sure the TARDIS sometimes guides the Doctor to the people she thinks will be good companions. She wants him to have company.
