Doctor Who Drabble: Lost Language

Title: Lost Language
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: The Doctor.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 229: Encrypt / decrypt at dw100.
Spoilers: Nada.
Summary: The Doctor has his own way of recording information so others can’t read it.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Doctor Who, or the characters.

Sometimes the best way to keep vital information out of the wrong hands is to encrypt it so it can only be understood by someone who has the cipher, the key to unlocking the apparently nonsensical puzzle.

Many races use such encryptions in times of war to keep knowledge of such things as troop movements and battle plans from their enemies. They work well enough, at least until said enemies manage to get their hands on the cipher.

The Doctor doesn’t need codes; he simply writes in Gallifreyan. As the last of his race, it’s a language only he understands.

The End
