Fic: The Other Doctor's Tale (Valiant Tales)

Title: The Other Doctor's Tale
Series: Valiant Tales.  Read them in order here.
Rating: G
The Master (Simm), other characters
Genre: drabble
Spoilers: Minor spoilers for The Sound of Drums and Last of the Time Lords.
Summary: A series of drabbles about the people who lived, worked, and suffered on the Valiant during the Year That Never Was. 100 words according to MS Word.
Disclaimer: The sandbox belongs to RTD and the BBC. I'm just playing here, in the corner, making little sand-TARDISs.
A/N: This is the other side of
The Medic's Tale.  I suggest reading that one first.

The Master calls me "Doctor Patel" with a sneer, as if only his compatriot deserves the title.  I took my degrees at Edinburgh and Harvard; nevertheless, I swallow the insult for the sake of all I can learn.

The test subject he calls "The Freak" is remarkable.  I must perform more experiments.  If I can replicate this accelerated healing in humans...

I have a coffee mug that says "Primum non nocere" -- an outdated platitude!  Medicine is never without harm.  Drugs have side-effects; surgery violates the body.  I will give the mug to my corpsman.  I no longer need it.
