Doctor Who Drabble: Only Forwards

Title: Only Forwards
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: The Doctor, Others.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 192: Forward at dw100.
Spoilers: General for the Doctor’s story.
Summary: The Doctor tries to never look back.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Doctor Who, or the characters.

The Doctor’s past is filled with so much pain and heartbreak, more perhaps than any other living being has ever known. Countless friends and loved ones have passed beyond the veil over the centuries, leaving him to carry on alone. Companions have come along to brighten his existence for a brief period of time, but they can never stay for long. They age too quickly, and he has to let them go before his way of life can end theirs.

The last of his race, he feels compelled to keep moving forward, because looking back will only break his hearts.

The End
