Doctor Who Drabble: Travellers

Title: Travellers
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Face Of Boe.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 171: Terminus at dw100.
Spoilers: Gridlock.
Summary: Boe has done all he can to preserve some of the planet’s population.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Doctor Who, or the characters.

They’re all seeking the end of their long journey, the motorway’s exit, always believing others must have reached the terminus. The dream keeps them going, year after year; the hope of reaching their destination, of getting out into fresh air, where there are jobs to be had and a life to live.

In truth they’ll just go around and around, because the journey is all that’s keeping them alive. Everyone on the surface is long gone; the travellers in the under-city are the only survivors, and Boe will keep them down there, protected, until the Doctor comes to save them.

The End
