Doctor Who Drabble: The Charms Of Gravity

Title: The Charms Of Gravity

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: The Doctor

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 028: On the meaning of space travel at dw100

Spoilers: None.

Summary: Gravity varies throughout the universe.

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

Gravity varies, planet to planet; sometimes it’s so low that a world’s inhabitants are barely held to its surface, bounding along in great leaps, almost flying. On other worlds, the strength of gravity is so great that the natives are only a few centimetres tall, creeping slowly over the ground.

The Doctor avoids high gravity planets. Although the TARDIS creates its own gravity field, to step outside her door on such a world would mean certain death, crushed flat in an instant. That’s something even a Time Lord couldn’t survive.

But zero gravity, well, that’s the best fun of all.

The End
