Doctor Who Drabble: Unworthy

Title: Unworthy
Characters: The Doctor.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 466: Alter / Altar at dw100.
Spoilers: Nada.
Summary: The Doctor doesn’t want to be treated like a god.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Doctor Who, or the characters.

Hundreds of people bow down before the TARDIS, falling to their knees, like worshipers before an altar.

The Doctor understands, they’re grateful to him for saving them from disaster, but he’s not a god, not some all-seeing, all-knowing all-powerful being. He’s just a person, not so very different from any of them, except that he comes from another, more technologically advanced planet.

He made the mistake of getting too far above himself once before, he’ll not do that again.

“None of that now. I didn’t save you; I just showed you how to save yourselves. Use your freedom wisely. Farewell.”

The End
