Anachronism, G, 100 words

Title: Anachronism
Characters: Barbara, Susan, the Doctor
Rating: G
Word count: 100
Summary: The chameleon circuit was broken.
Notes: Many thanks to purple_bug for betaing, as much as you can a drabble.




The TARDIS was supposed to change, to disguise itself, to blend in seamlessly with its varying surroundings.

It didn’t.

Susan said the chameleon circuit was broken. The Doctor merely hrrumphed.

Whatever the reason, the TARDIS stayed looking like a police box; a blue painted wooden box, nine feet tall and four foot square: it was as much an anachronism as they were.

Barbara rather liked it.

It retained the shape it had taken to fit in with 1963. Regardless of the interior, it was a reminder, a souvenir of home.

She hoped the Doctor wouldn’t fix the circuit too soon.

Very nice! I'm rather glad he never fixed it as well.
