Summary: You’d think someone who could travel in time would never be late…
Disclaimer: I don’t own Doctor Who, or the characters.
Despite being able to travel through time as well as space, the Doctor’s timekeeping often leaves a lot to be desired. Usually it’s not a serious problem; winding up in the right place but a century early is easily fixable, just pop back into the TARDIS and jump forward in time.
But there was that time he took Rose home a year after she’d left, and… For a while there he’d thought Jackie might do something permanent to him for all the worry his little slip-up had put her through. He tried really hard to be on time after that.
