Summary: Everybody misses the Doctor
Oi, mate, where’s the Doctor?”
The lads keep up the joke for weeks, whenever he shows up for the match with just Sophie in tow. He smiles, laughs, cuffs them about the shoulders a bit and gets on with the game.
Still, the question haunts him. Of all the planets and adventures he glimpsed in the Doctor’s mind, where is he now?
Craig’s never wanted to leave Colchester; now he’s with Sophie, why should he? He’s got what he always wanted, but he can’t help wondering what the Doctor might be up to.
And if he’ll ever come back.
