Doctor Who: Now We Are Six Hundred
  • Doctor Who: Now We Are Six Hundred

  • RETIRING

    On days I don't want to Doctor much
    I worry that I shall lose my touch
    All that running down those corridors
    Thwartings of tyrants and dreadful bores
    Brave rescues from the Foul Monster's Lair
    And firm trouncing all the Demons There.

    Chaos never ends, oh that's the shame
    So yes I tire of just one more game.
    Sometimes when the same old fight begins
    I fear, just once, I'll let Evil win.
    And then, on second thought, perhaps I won't
    Because they're Monsters, and so I don't.
    On days like that I don't think at all
    That being the Doctor's so bad after all.
