Doctor Who Drabble: Like Old Times

Title: Like Old Times
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Sarah Jane, the Tenth Doctor.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 170: Familiar at dw100.
Spoilers: School Reunion.
Summary: He looks different, and yet he’s still the same.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Doctor Who, or the characters.

He looked completely different from the last time Sarah Jane had seen him; different face, different hair, different voice, and yet she felt as though she would have known him anywhere.

Stick her in a roomful of strangers and she was certain she’d be able to tell which one was the Doctor within a few minutes, because despite the changes in appearance and mannerisms, there was still something indefinably familiar about him, like he radiated an aura of some kind.

Working with him was familiar too. Just for a little while, Sarah Jane could almost believe she was young again.

The End


Ten was certainly excited to see her again.:)
I think any incarnation of the Doctor after Four would have been =)

Thank you!

Yeah. I meant that too.*remembers Eleven*
I guess each regeneration has memories of prior companions.

Twelve had a vague one of Donna.
Yes he did. He also had a picture of Susan (granddaughter, not the horse) on his desk alongside River's.

I don't know why the Eleventh Doctor didn't mention he had a granddaughter with the same name in "A Small Town Called Mercy".
Me neither. Maybe he was in a bit of a hurry and talked to horse Susan about it off camera ;)

Like how Nine talked to the cat in "The Empty Child".
If he speaks the language then why shouldn't he? =)

Both Nine and Eleven have talked to a cat. I like that the Doctor can have a proper conversation with animals. Us humans can only have a one-sided conversation.

I'm just saying that it was a wasted opportunity not to reference Susan on screen. That's just my opinion.
I agree.

The Doctor is lucky he can converse with just about anything.

He could be a vet?
great drabble
Thank you!
