The Land Of Happy Endings

Mightygodking’s I Should Write Dr. Strange has returned, and with a plot hook where you could substitute Strange with Who again.

Discussion of the theme in general over on The General Gaming Blog...

So what would the Doctor do if he met a future Doctor who had settled down to keep bees and help look after a line of grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren? 

On one level he’d be delighted... but I don’t think he’d accept it. Of course the Doctor has plenty of time to go on holiday - technically he has all of time to go on holiday, and then some - but resting isn’t the same as stopping. The only time he really tried that was in The Curse Of Fatal Death...

Of course, being weirded out by one’s future self is an occupational hazard for the Doctor more than most characters. “So these are my replacements? A dandy and a clown?” Imagine the adventurous early Eighth Doctor meeting shellshocked Nine, or indeed Nine meeting Eleven.
