Doctor Who Drabble: Her Ideal Man

Title: Her Ideal Man
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Tenth Doctor, Rose.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 189: David Bowie – Loving the Alien at dw100.
Spoilers: Season Two.
Summary: Rose has found her ideal man in the Doctor.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Doctor Who, or the characters.

Rose isn’t quite sure exactly when it was that she fell head over heels in love with the Doctor. She thinks it was most likely after his regeneration, because although she’d loved that brusque, big-eared man in the leather jacket, something about him had held her back. Perhaps because he looked around her mother’s age, whereas he seemed closer to her own age after he changed.

Maybe the when doesn’t really matter, because it happened, and now she can’t imagine not having him in her life. She doesn’t care that he’s not human; he’s still the only man for her.

The End


No matter how old he looks, he's still 900 years compared to her, what, 20? If she's told the truth about her age, that is. And even in his new form, he still looks quite a few years older than her.

Still, I suppose one can't help but fall in love, or at least learn to love him one way or another....
I always felt it was like Rose's first big love, she was so caught up with the adventure she fell head over heels, like teenagers do. She never really fully understood just how much older than her the Doctor was, too caught up in the romance of it all. It was a bit sad in some ways. It never would have worked out long-term.

Thank you.
Great drabble
