Author: badly_knitted

Summary: Bureaucracy and red tape get everywhere.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Doctor Who, or the characters.

“All space vessels must dock in an appropriate berth,” the space station’s officious port master insisted, “and must pay the appropriate docking fees.”

“That won’t be necessary; my ship doesn’t take up much room. No point tying up a whole berth another ship can use. She’ll be fine tucked away in the corner, she’s not in anyone’s way.”

The port master frowned. “This is most irregular. The rules say all ships must be docked.”

“Excellent rule, but my ship isn’t the regular sort.”

The port master scratched his head with one flipper. “You’ll still have to pay the docking fees.”

The End
