Doctor Who Drabble: Shadow Men

Title: Shadow Men
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Eleventh Doctor
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 189: David Bowie – Shadow Man at dw100.
Spoilers: The Impossible Astronaut.
Summary: The Silence are a mystery, even to the Doctor.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Doctor Who, or the characters.





They’re like shadows, startling, even frightening when caught sight of unexpectedly, and they’re always unexpected, yet ignored and forgotten about most of the time.


Like shadows, they’re always present too, although never mentioned, because no one who sees them ever remembers them once they look away, even for the smallest instant.


Where they’ve come from, these tall, cadaverous figures in black suits, not even the Doctor knows, but any being so intent on hiding its presence can’t be up to anything good; the Silence are no exception.


But how do you investigate something you forget whenever they’re out of sight?

Record it when you do remember it?

Leave little reminder notes for yourself?

And then wonder what the notes mean... The Doctor managed to deal with them in the end though.

Thank you!
Great drabble, shadow people kinda frighten me LOL
Yeah, they would me, and the Silence were creepy too.

Thank you!
