Doctor Who Drabble: Instant Offspring

Title: Instant Offspring

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Tenth Doctor, Martha Jones, Jenny.

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 066: Inconceivable at dw100

Spoilers: The Doctor’s Daughter.

Summary: Martha knows that reproduction doesn’t work like this…

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

Even after everything Martha’s seen, this is hard to accept. She’s a medical doctor, she knows how reproduction works, and it’s not like this. Yet she can’t ignore the proof.

A tissue sample’s all it takes, the Doctor’s hand is forced into a machine and a couple of minutes later, there she is, a young woman, grown from his cells. Even Sontarans take longer than that!

The method of reproducing people is bizarre enough to leave Martha off balance, but what’s even harder to take in is that this woman is essentially the Doctor’s daughter.

She looks nothing like him.

The End


Definitely an odd way to reproduce forsure.

great drabble.
But at least you end up with a fully grown adult, it cuts out a lot of work!

Thank you!
Which is probably good, since he ended up marrying her in real life. :D

Lol! He married the daughter of one of his earlier incarnations!

Thank you!

She resembled more of the "Fifth" incarnation of the Doctor?
She did, but never having seen the Fifth Doctor, Martha couldn't know that. She just found it all rather baffling.

Thank you!

Maybe the Doctor should have told her that. What Jenny looked like was just one of the things that was baffling.
Like the Doctor would ever think to explain things like that! I doubt he even noticed Martha's confusion (can't remember the episode too well, I wrote this after a quick glance at the relevant section of the episode transcript).
This is the Doctor we are talking about. I didn't expect he would, just that he should of. He did invest in Martha's medical expertise.

How did Donna know about the two hearts thing?
I have no idea! Maybe she learned about that in a previous episode =/

Donna must have quizzed him or something between adventures.

The Doctor: You’re in space. Outer space. And this is my… space ship.
Donna: Who are you?
The Doctor: I’m the Doctor. You?
Donna: Donna.
The Doctor: Human?
Donna: Yeah. Is that optional?
The Doctor: Well it is for me.
Donna: You’re an alien.
The Doctor: Yeah.

Yeah, Donna was good at asking questions!

Donna: Listen, I don't know what sort of kids you've been flying around with in outer space but you're not telling me to shut up.

Martha tried but Ten was more comfortable/intimidated by Donna.:D
Martha was strong in her own way, but she wasn't the force of nature that Donna was. The Doctor needed that.

Martha got snarky with him after she got over her crush but Donna was the best at keeping him in line. I don't think even Amy or Clara were as good at telling the Doctor off when he was being irrational.

I miss Donna.:(
I agree. Both Amy and Clara have strong personalities, but they're not a match for Donna. I miss her too. Martha was at a disadvantage, being the one right after Rose because of the Doctor's 'relationship' with Rose. She was never going to get a fair deal from him. A lot of the time it was a is he only saw her in terms of who she wasn't, being constantly compared in the Doctor's mind to Rose. The Rose fans didn't treat her well either. I really liked Martha, but I know a lot of fans resented her.

Donna was the right match for the Doctor.

Even RTD made it obvious that Ten's mistreatment of Martha was wrong. Why can't the Rose fans see this?
Because they just don't want any other companion. They think it should just be Rose all the time and the Doctor shouldn't care about anyone else. I imagine most of those were young people who didn't know Doctor Who before New Who started, they weren't accustomed to companions coming and going and they got invested in Rose. *shrugs*

So they didn't know the nature of the show?

Some people can't handle the Doctor regenerating into another man.
Kids growing up with New who probably didn't, especially if their parents weren't fans before.

I know, it's ridiculous! So many people stopped watching when Ten regenerated into Eleven, acting like it was some kind of sacrilege to replace their favourite. They never even give the nw ones a chance. I've loved every Doctor for different reasons, and that includes Twelve despite my concerns that I wouldn't be able to accept Capaldi as the Doctor because of associating him with Frobisher in Children of Earth. I gave him the benefit of the doubt because he's a great actor, and he is so different from Frobisher that there's no problem for me. I still have my favourite Doctors (Eleven and Four), but the Doctor is so much more than any one actor. He's the reason the show is as popular and long-running as it is.
