Characters: The Doctor, famous poets.
Written For: Challenge 161: Poetry at dw100.
Spoilers: Tiny for the Shakespeare Code.
Summary: The Doctor loves meeting talented people from earth’s history.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Doctor Who, or the characters.
Despite dabbing a bit in odd moments, the Doctor isn’t much of a poet himself, but he’s met a fair number of them. One of the best things about time travel is being able to hop into the past and witness people of rare talent creating their masterpieces. Byron, Shelley, Keats, Wordsworth and his Daffodils… Oh, those were a lovely sight!
Shakespeare of course, poet as well as playwright, and a legend throughout the universe.
Many worlds have poetry, but earth’s poets are among the finest. The Doctor feels privileged to have met them. Maybe he’ll chat with Poe next…
