Doctor Who Drabble: Muck

Title: Muck
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Donna Noble, Tenth Doctor, The TARDIS.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 274: Mat at dw100.
Spoilers: Nada.
Summary: Bad weather has made Donna and the Doctor decidedly mucky.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Doctor Who, or the characters.

“Ick!” Donna pulled a disgusted face as she squelched her way towards the familiar blue box. When she and the Doctor had gone exploring earlier they’d left the TARDIS parked on a hillock, which was fortunate because since then torrential rain had turned the surrounding land into a quagmire.

The mud was ankle deep, thick and sticky; by now Donna was heartily wishing she’d worn boots for this excursion rather than trainers. Maybe her feet would still be dry. She baulked at the doorway, looking from her muddy feet to the TARDIS’s pristine interior.

“Time you got a doormat, Spaceman!”

The End


It's common courtesy.:)
I would think so, unless the Doctor has some sort of sonic device just inside that cleans shoes...

Thank you!
Remember when Eleven told Clara off for wetting the TARDIS floor with her umbrella?

Thanks for a nice read.:)

It's been a while since I watched Eleven so the memory is very vague...

You're welcome!
That's why it took me a while to warm up to Clara. Calling the TARDIS "a machine".*frowns*

Well, I guess it's an easy mistake to make when you don't know. She learned.

Happy New Year!
I think the feeling was mutual in a sense that the TARDIS didn't let Clara feel welcome. *Silly mysterious backstory*

Same to you! :)

Some of the backstory is a big vague, unfortunately. Fans notice these things.

Thank you!
Yes, because in order to enjoy the storyline we must pay attention to every single detail.:)
We fans are perhaps a little obsessive ;)

Thank you!
What do the producers expect?*rhetorical*

You're welcome.:)
I think they only care about ratings. As long as they get good viewing figures they're happy.
It's all in accordance to when a show is scheduled. Some decent shows get canceled because the timeslot keeps moving or they change networks.

While some shows which some say are overrated go on for far longer than expected because it coincides with decent ones. I've done some research on this topic.:)

But yeah, money is the incentive for the big bosses.
Anything that gets moved around is going to have a tough time building a fanbase and getting good viewing figures. A show I'd been watching has been shifted from 9pm to 11pm, so I've stopped watching.

It's a shame some shows get cancelled just because they're put on TV at the wrong time.
Sometimes it takes a dedicated fanbase to keep a show going or wait for a revival.

Anyway, my mum ask me to Goggle the original "Hawaii 5-0", so she could show me the differences between that one and the new one.:)
I loved the old version. I like the new one too, but it's a very different show now.

I hated that Firefly got cancelled after so few episodes, but at least we got the movie. Serenity is one of my favourite movies.
I haven't seen the original Hawaii. All I know is that the main difference is there's a female lead. Plus one of the actors is Australian.

I've only seen a few random episodes. It's supposed to be connected to NCIS: Los Angeles which I try to watch.

The only silver lining with a show cancelling is when actors move onto more successful projects.

I didn't get a chance to watch Firefly but
Nathan Fillion did "Castle", even if it lost abit of its spark towards the end.

Adam Baldwin finally did a role that wasn't a typical bad guy on "Chuck". I noticed him as the token bad guy in alot of other shows like in "Bones".

So that was refreshing to see him as one of the good guys for a change.

I think Summer Glau is an underrated actress. At least they went back and did the movie Serenity.

Like they did with Veronica Mars. Fans need closure for cancelled shows.

I didn't know it was connected to NCIS: LA, but then I haven't seen all that much of that, just random episodes. Haven't seen Hawaii 5-0 from the start either, only from about season 2.

Firefly was awesome, and Adam Baldwin wasn't a bad guy in it, I loved Jayne, he was part of Serenity's crew and sort of the muscle, he was bad sometimes, but nobody's perfect, lol!

I love Castle, I got the final 4 seasons on DVD for Christmas and I'm looking forward to finishing my rewatch, including all the episodes I've missed since I've only seen bits of the last seasons on TV.

Summer has done a few things, but she really seems to be underrated. She was amazing as River Tam.
