Doctor Who Drabble: Joking Aside

Title: Joking Aside

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: The Doctor

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 010 – Jokes at dw100

Spoilers: Nothing specific.

Summary: Humour can be an effective weapon.

Disclaimer: I don’t own Doctor Who, or the characters.







The Doctor loves jokes; there’s no better tool for annoying his enemies than humour, preferably at their expense. While they try to be their best evil selves, he cracks jokes, taunts them, makes them react impulsively, even irrationally. When people of any species get angry, they make mistakes. It’s a universal constant.



Besides, jokes are funny, and what’s life without a bit of fun? Dead boring, that’s what. Laughter breeds hope, and where there’s hope, anything is possible.



That’s why the Doctor always wins. Not because he’s smarter, although he usually is, but because he knows which buttons to push.



The End
