Doctor Who Drabble: Clinging To Hope

Title: Clinging To Hope

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Martha Jones; mentions the Master and the Tenth Doctor.

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 076: Lost Causes at dw100.

Spoilers: Last of the Time Lords.

Summary: Martha has to believe that the Doctor can save the earth.

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







Martha thinks that to anyone but the Doctor, the situation on earth would appear hopeless. The Master is in control, destroying cities and people on a casual whim. His emissaries, the Toclafane, carry out his orders gleefully; they seem to delight in murder as much as the insane Time Lord himself.



Even though she doesn’t fully understand the Doctor’s plan, Martha does her part willingly. Walking the earth, spreading the word, is exhausting, terrifying, and lonely, but she clings to hope because it’s all she has.



As long as the Doctor lives, there’s no such thing as a lost cause.



The End
