Is my name The Doctor

By 2HeartedHuman

Other / Drama

Chapter 1

He heard footsteps and men talking. His head hurt, he felt like he was spinning. He was lying on something flat from his head to foot. He began to open his eyes. His vision was blurry until it came clear. A man and a woman were leaning over him. She was applying something to his head, a tissue or a wet cloth.

He frowned. He grew scared as he looked around the room. Police officers, paramedics, men in suits and carrying cameras surrounded him.

But he couldn't see her.

The paramedic noticed that he was awake and called for a woman. His memories began to flood back into his head, he can remember her franticly running about the room grabbing things and packing them, from time to time she would come over, give him hugs and kiss him on the head, tell him she loved him. She told him to stay quiet and to have a drink of water, and then it went black. Now she was gone, he couldn't see her, panic rose up inside him.

He wanted her to be with him. He was frightened. Another woman came over and knelt beside him on the floor. She smiled.

"It's ok Doctor. You're safe now"

The Doctor stiffened "Who are you?"

"Doctor it's me, it's Donna"

"Who? Why are you here? Why are you calling me Doctor?"

"It's your name" she replied

"I want my mummy" The Doctor stood. The paramedics beckoned him to stay down but he refused. He jumped up and began to slowly back up to the corner of the room.

"Where's my mummy?" The Doctor sounded like a child weeping for his mother for comfort and protection. He wept as he seeked shelter in the corner of the room, away from all of the strangers.

Donna stepped forward "Doctor, she wasn't your mum"

"You liar! Where is she?"

Two polices officers moved forward. With no intent on hurting or harming the Doctor, they knew what he had been through and didn't want to frighten him. However, Donna beckoned them to stay back allowing her to move forward and gently place her arm over the Doctor's shoulder "It's alright, I'll take you to her" Donna lead him out of the room, into the hall and outside into the fresh air.

They were in a neighbourhood, surrounded by houses and trees. Neighbours were outside at their doors. Police jeeps stood outside the garden. A woman was being handcuffed and about to be placed in the back of the jeep. The Doctor saw her and ran over.


She smiled in the officer's grip. The Doctor ran up and gripped her into a hug.

In her disadvantage she could not hug back and instead leaned her head on his chest.

"What's happening mummy? Why are there people in our house?"

She drew back from the hug. "I have to go somewhere baby and I'm not going see you for a while okay"

Tears formed in the Doctor's eyes "What. Why?"

The officer stepped up and gave her a shove indicating that it was time to go. Another man placed a hand on the Doctor's shoulder and tried to pull him away.

"I have to go now"


"I love you sweetie. You will always be my baby boy!"

The door shut and the police jeep drove away. The Doctor was lead to another jeep but it was different. It was huge and black. The windows were tinted and letters were stuck to the bonnet 'TORCHWOOD'. A man opened the back door and beckoned for the Doctor to get in. Once the Doctor had sat down, the door slammed shut. The Doctor leaned close to the window, desperate to see what was going on outside.

"Hey Doc"

A soft American voice called out from behind him, making the Doctor jump and turn immediately to face him. The man smiled, he sat in the front at the wheel, and he wore a long coat and a shirt with braces. His face was kind and his tone was soft.

"It's me Jack. I'm a friend; I'm taking you back to the hub okay"

The Doctor was too frightened to answer. The woman who called herself Donna opened the door next to the Doctor and sat beside him. The Doctor shuffled a far away from as he could and drew his knees up to his face, wrapping his arms tightly around his legs.

"Doctor I'm not going hurt you, I promise"

The Doctor looked her up and down. "I want my mummy"

Donna simply stared, sighing as she put on her seatbelt and Jack turned on the engine. The Doctor hid his face in his legs not allowing them to see him cry. The jeep finally drove away from the house. The Doctor just didn't realise that after two years with his kidnappers, he was finally free.
