    I think Kitsun3 was speaking the of the small gap of time when Rose turned the Doctor down in joining him and then he (the TARDIS) rematerialized again and tempts her with time travel. For us and Rose, it was just moments later, but perhaps for the Doctor, he had several adventures in that time.

    Most likely this is not intent at all... but it's fun and good to speculate.


    For those of you who have followed the BBC Books adventures, this very same thing happened with the Eighth Doctor. Soon after taking on Samantha Jones as a companion, he drops her off at some kind of protest rally and picks her up a few hours later, from her perspective. For him, however, he has been traveling in the neighborhood of a year.

    Additionally, at one point the Eighth Doctor loses his memory and the TARDIS is nearly destroyed, and he spends almost the entire twentieth century stranded on earth. When his companion Fitz makes his rendezvous with him, however, it has only been a matter of hours or days for Fitz.

    I really enjoy these types of stories, because it makes the most of both the Doctor's longevity and his ability to time travel. Of course, the length of a television program limits the ability to pull off "long term" stories. However, there is no reason to reject the idea that, on occasion, the Doctor has spent years, even decades, in one place and time if the situation required him to do so.

    By the way, I think it would be fascinating if the Ninth Doctor went back to give Rose a second chance because the Tenth Doctor and Rose encounter him travelling alone during that interval. Anyone else dying to see the Doctor meet up with himself again (if the story is done right)? Maybe even with the Eighth Doctor? How is McGann holding up these days? Smile

    So many people are against it, I'd love to see it, if the story were done right.

    How about a multiple Doctor story where he is up against a new Master, who recruits one of his earlier selves to help him battle the two doctors? It could be called the Four Timelords.

    Oh well, it's a thought.

    There's only one way in which I'd like a multiple Doctor story. I wouldn't mind seeing Paul McGann in some kind of flashback to the Time War. Maybe. If done very, very right.

    That said, the idea of multiple Time Lords has a certain appeal. The one Time Lord—and, yes, she is a Time Lord—I really want to see is Susan. I firmly believe she survives, somehow, some way. To me, the perfect 45th anniversary special, done as a Christmas special, would be a family reunion.

    I've said it before, I'll say it again: Susan has a valid, emotional place in RTD Who.
