Traveling Again

The Next Doctor Cybermen

OMG 21 people are following this story! I've only ever written for smaller fantoms, and Doctor Who is in no way small! It's like it's bigger on the inside;)

Anyways, again, updates won't be as frequent because I have school, and sadly should get good grades. Plus this weekend I get to take home the electronic baby for Child Development. :P

I hope you enjoy it! I was pleased enough with it, although I'm not the best at writing action scenes.

ALSO! I need a proofreader, for any Doctor Who errors, or spelling grammar etc. Please let me know if you would be interested. I also want to bring in Bad Wolf and don't know if this is possible, LOL, I watched the first season forever ago and can't really remember.

They found Rosita and what was the next Doctor, at a funeral. The funeral was a grave progression, as Rose supposed, it was supposed to be. She gripped the Doctor's arm tightly as they carried the old man past, leaving his house.

"The late Reverend Fairchild, leaving his place of residence for the last time." Doctor three said, to his companion Rosita, "Now, with the house empty, I shall effect an entrance at the rear while you go back to the TARDIS. This is hardly work for a woman."

"Ass hat." Rose muttered underneath her breath, and her Doctor glanced down at her.

"Oi!" he whispered, "That's my future regeneration your talking about." She stuck her tongue out at him, and he poked her. They both hid behind a firm, when the Next Doctor turned around, and instead They watched Rosita stomp away, and the next Doctor disappear into his cottage, and the Doctor took his chance.

"Hello!" he popped up in front of his future self, and grinned.

"How did you get in?" the man demanded when he saw Rose come up behind the Doctor.

"Oh front door. I'm good at doors. Er, if you mind me asking, is that your sonic screwdriver?"

"Yes, I'd be lost without it." He held it out proudly for them to inspect, but Rose frowned.

"But that's an actual screwdriver," she said, "How is it sonic?"

"It makes a noise!" the next Doctor said, and ducked behind a curtain. Rose and the Doctor, following suit, ducked behind the opposite curtain.

"I take it back," Rose whispered in his ear, "You are like his twin. Ow!"

"Now shush up you.." he said, and turned back to the room. "Doctor?" he called out, and Doctor three poked his head out. "This investigation off yours, what's it about?"

"It started with a murder." The next Doctor said mysteriously.

"Oh good." Her Doctor exclaimed.

"Rude." Rose whispered, and he changed his voice.

"I mean, bad. Whose?"

"Mr. Jackson Lake. A teacher from Sussex, he came to London three weeks ago and died a terrible death."

"Cybermen?" Rose asked quietly, staring at the floor.

"Hard to say, his body was never found." Doctor Three said, "But then it started, more secret murders, then abductions. Children, stolen away in silence."

"Well whose house is this?" Rose said impatiently, surveying their surroundings.

"The latest murder. The Reverend, found with burn on his forehead."

"Cybermen." Rose said firmly, "Doctor… er I mean John, we need to leave."

"How can you be sure?" he asked.

"I can feel it." She responded, "and," she pointed to the wall, covered in dust. Someone had curved their finger in the dust, making two words. Bad Wolf. Her Doctor stiffened at the sight of it.

"How?" He said, but Rose shook her head.

"I don't know-"

"What are you two babbling about?" Doctor Three demanded, and both Rose and her Doctor said in unison:


"Why are we hiding?" Rose asked, and Doctor Three looked confused.

"I thought something might pop out." he said, as if it was obvious.

"Doesn't make any sense."Rose whispered in her Doctor's ear.

"Look for metal." The Next Doctor said, evidentially ignoring their conversation. Her Doctor secretly scanned the wall with a real sonic screwdriver, and even though it's noise was faint, the other one heard it.

"Shh, what's that?" the other one thing.

"Oh," Rose said, making up something off the spot," just whistling."

"I wonder what's in here though." Her Doctor said and opened the writing desk on the other side of the room. " Rose come here." He said, and she walked over to where he was standing and looked inside.

"A different metal." She said grimly, and the other Doctor strode over, while her Doctor began to babble.

"I'm guessing this is a storage unit. Compressed information, tons of it. This is like a disc, a cyberdisc. But why would the Cybermen need something so simple? They've got to be wireless. Unless, they're in the wrong century. They haven't got much power. They need plain old basic infostamps to update themselves. Are you alright?" he was asking Rose, who nodded, but the Next Doctor answered.

"I'm fine." He said, dramatically, and Rose fought back a snort. Throw in two Doctor's and it was like a soap opera.

"No what is it? What's wrong?"

"I've seen one of these before. I was holding this device the night I lost my mind. The night I regenerated, The Cybermen, they made me change. My mind, my face, my whole self. I beg you John, help me."

"Ah." The Doctor said, and Rose knew they wouldn't be going anywhere, "Two words I never refuse. But it's not a conversation for a dead man's house. It'll make more sense if we go back to the TARDIS. Your TARDIS. Hold on. I just need to do a little final check. Won't take a tick. There's one more thing I cannot figure. If this room's got infostamps, then maybe, just maybe, it's got something that needs infostamping." He crossed the room, and opened a door to what he presumed was a bedroom. A Cybermen, metal body gleaming, stood behind it. "Okay." He said, and slammed shut the door.

"Run?" Rose asked him, and he nodded.

"RUN!" he yelled as the door was smashed down. "Run Doctor! Run!"

"Delete. The Doctor will be deleted." Another Cybermen joined the first, but this time from the door outside.


"Ok, so outside isn't an option." Her Doctor said, "Stairs!" he drew something out of the umbrella stand, which was of course, an umbrella. Rose took a sword mounted on the wall instead, and smeared out the words Bad Wolf with her fist before joining the Doctor's on the step.

"She's very skilled with a sword, I'm warning you!" The Doctor said, and Rose waved her sword in the air threateningly, but the Cybermen kept advancing.


"Listen to me!" he gave up threating, "Whatever your doing stuck in 1851 I can help! I mean it! I'm the only person in the world who can help you! Listen to me."


"I'm the Dcotor, you need me!" Her Doctor yelled frustrated, the other Doctor was at the top of the stairs, examining a second infostamp. "You need the Doctor and that's me!"

"Delete." A giant beam of light came from no where and exploded both Cybermen, they both turned to see Doctor Three, holding an info stamp, and looking extremely pleased with himself.

"Well that's something." Rose said.

"You told them you were the Doctor. Why did you do that?" he asked.

"I was protecting you." Her Doctor, the true Doctor, said.

"You're trying to take away the only thing I've got, like they did. They stole something, something so precious, but I can't remember. What happened to me? What did they do?"

"We'll find out." Rose said, "I promise."
