Doctor Who Drabble: Hard Choice

Title: Hard Choice
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Donna Noble, Tenth Doctor.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 262: Epoch at dw100.
Spoilers: Nada.
Summary: With all of time and space to choose from, where will Donna pick?
Disclaimer: I don’t own Doctor Who, or the characters.

“Where to; the far future, distant past, or another world? Take your pick, I can take you anywhere and any time!”

The Doctor’s enthusiasm was infectious, but how could Donna possibly choose? Where do you start when you have all of time and space spread out in front of you? There was so much to see and do…

It popped into her head out of nowhere. Not a distant world; that could wait. Another epoch, back when strange creatures roamed and the earth was still young.

“Dinosaurs! I want to see dinosaurs, like in Jurassic Park.”

The Doctor grinned. “Brilliant!”

The End


Donna is way braver than me.
She's practically fearless! I would love to see living dinosaurs though.

Thank you!
Me too, from a safe distance.
Of course. I wouldn't be running over to pet them, lol!
Well, you know what I mean? :)

I didn't watch the whole of "Jurassic Park" after one scary scene. I get freaked out too easily over things like that.:(
I love the first three Jurassic Park movies, haven't seen the recent ones yet. Guess I'm lucky that I don't get too scared when it comes to dinosaurs, but supernatural stuff, especially ghosts... I can't deal with those ghost-hunting shows!
I won't risk seeing something going too graphic because it takes a while to shake the image. Too traumatic for me.:(

For exampIe, I can't rewatch that Buffy episode where Willow kills Warren.

Psychological thrillers are more my genre. Supernatural was the last show I watched where things would get abit gorey.

I viewed it for the characters and the stories. Which is whats more important to me.
I agree characters and story are the most important thing in any TV show or movie.

I mostly don't mind gory because I know it's all fake, but now I live alone I've stopped watching horror movies and reading horror novels because I just get creeped out and can't sleep.
Yeah, it's not productive to waste time on mindless entertainment.

I have a home security system and I still wouldn't watch horror movies. I've always looked away when I tried too.

I don't know how people can produce that stuff without being psychologically imbalanced. I don't want to judge though.

I'd rather watch the news or a cheery children's program. Anything but horror.
Some people just enjoy the safe thrill of being scared by something that isn't real. I used to, but these days I prefer action adventure and SF. There has to be plot and good characters though. I can't stand soap operas or boring romantic dramas.

One of my favourite children's shows was terrifying. I've managed to get it on DVD but still haven't got up the nerve to watch it yet. O.O
Mine is going on a rollercoaster but I haven't done that in years.:)

I use to like love stories or drama but now find them unrealistic. I can bear it only if it comes second to the action or mystery within a TV show or movie.

Do you mind telling me what children's show you're referring too? You make it sound scary but I'm curious.:D
I've only been on a rollercoaster once, when I was about ten. I loved it, but I've never been anywhere since with someone who'd go on one with me.

Yeah, I'm okay with romance in something as long as it's not the main focus.

It's called 'Escape Into Night', an adaptation of a novel called 'Marianne Dreams'. A movie was made from the same book, but called 'Paperhouse', but it was nowhere near as good or as creepy. My best friend and I used to watch it at her house after school, once a week. It's only available in black and white now though, the original colour version is probably landfill somewhere now, like so many old Doctor Who episodes.
A rollercoaster is more predictable than a real life romance. Which is more enjoyable in my books.

However it takes good banter and chemistry between actors to entertain me.

Wow, thanks for the information.:)
You're welcome! I will watch it one of these days...

Yes, and good acting, and a good setting. A plot helps too. (I'm really picky, aren't I? *grins*)
I looked up "Escape Into Night" and the images freaked me out as it is.

That's a kids show?! :D

Nah! A plot has to be thick to be good.:)
