Fifth Doctor Drabbles

Chapter Text

“Throw him overboard!” Captain Wrack ordered.

Her first mate grabbed the Doctor and dragged him toward the hole in the floor. The Doctor locked eyes with Turlough. He could see the boy’s emotions flicker across his face. Confusion and fear were followed by hesitation, then angry resolve. Turlough pushed Wrack into the void. She hardly had time to scream before fading into nothing.

The Doctor struggled near the edge. Reaching out, Turlough grabbed his hand, pulling him to safety. The first mate attempted to follow but stepped too close to the opening. He was sucked into the vacuum of space.
