Doctor Who Drabble: Swarm

Title: Swarm
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Martha Jones, Tenth Doctor.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 298: Fun at dw100.
Spoilers: Nada.
Summary: They’re running for their lives and the Doctor thinks it’s fun!
Disclaimer: I don’t own Doctor Who, or the characters.

“Isn’t this fun?” the Doctor yells, running through deserted streets, a swarm of mutated bugs close behind. “We’ll just lead them back to the laboratory and trap them in the stasis chamber!”

Martha isn’t sure ‘fun’ is the right word; ‘terrifying’ might come closer. She’s seen what the bugs do to anyone unfortunate enough to be in the swarm’s path, flesh stripped down to bare bones in a matter of minutes, but the Doctor swears they’re in no danger because he’s sprayed them with pheromones. They just need to run; the bugs will follow them anywhere.

Martha crosses her fingers.

The End
