Characters: The Doctor.
Written For: Challenge 319: Witness at dw100.
Summary: The Doctor has seen the best and worst of times in his travels.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Doctor Who, or the characters.
Travelling the universe throughout time as well as space has allowed the Doctor to witness firsthand some of the greatest moments in the histories of many worlds. He’s lost count of the number of coronations he’s attended, the celebrations marking the end of wars and revolutions, the premiere performances of great symphonies, and the rediscoveries of works of art thought lost forever.
He’s observed, though been unable to prevent, countless tragic events too, because he’s long felt someone should be there to mourn the loss of whole civilisations through war, plague, or natural disaster.
Not all of history is beautiful.
