Doctor Who Drabble: Outside Help

Title: Outside Help
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: The Doctor.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 166: Bluster at dw100.
Spoilers: General.
Summary: Bluster doesn’t win battles.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Doctor Who, or the characters.





Earth’s military, especially the officers, must be trained in the art of bluster. Even UNIT isn’t immune. If invading aliens could be defeated merely by talking at them, the Doctor thinks, earth would never need his help. They’d be more than able to cope.


Sadly, the universe doesn’t work that way. Despite all the hot air the military and politicians are producing, indignantly asserting their sovereignty over their planet, words can’t sway Cybermen, or Daleks, or even Sycorax. It’s a good thing the people of earth have a little outside help in such situations. Someone needs to keep them alive.



The End

Oh, the Doctor's one to talk! He bluffs his way using the weapon of his choice, words, all the time....

That said, he does have a little more experience in dealing with other aliens, and some advanced tech to help... and the TARDIS!
He just considers himself to be in a different class. Plus, he has a better idea pf what he's up against and what might work. He thinks humans are woefully ill-equipped to deal with alien species. ;)

Thank you!
great drabble.
Thank you =)
