helygen in resonse to the prompt: "Ten, Rose, Brigadier".  The title is taken from the Beatles' song.


The Brigadier stared.  "Impossible!" 

"It... belongs to my friend," said the blonde leaning against the TARDIS.

"Hardly.  The owner left it in London yesterday."

"Who are you?"

"Brigadier Sir Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart!" a thin young man exclaimed.

Discipline kept him impassive. "You've done it again, Doctor."

"Yes-- blimey!  Where are we?"

"Barnbrook.  He-- you drove off five minutes ago."

"What?  I remember that day.  I turned back almost immediately.  Rose!  Time to go!"

She laughed.  "Goodbye, Sir Alistair."

The wording of the Doctor's salutation finally registered.  "Sir Alistair?  Doctor, please tell me you're jo--"  The sound of dematerialisation interrupted him.

That's brilliant! Especially the last line. I love how deadpan the Brigadier is up till that point :)

Thanks. The Brigadier has plenty of experience in dealing with the Doctor's... eccentricities. Regeneration? No problem. Alien invasion? Old hat. Being told that at some point in his future he's going to be burdened with a knighthood and a lot of ceremonial falderol? Terrifying.

I think with that knowledge, he'd have to reach into a pocket, grab his hip flask, and take a discreet sip. ;)
