FIC: The Medic's Tale (Valiant Tales)

Title: The Medic's Tale
Series: Valiant Tales.  Read them in order here.
Rating: G
Tenth Doctor, 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.
Disclaimer: The sandbox belongs to RTD and the BBC. I'm just playing here, in the corner, making little sand-TARDISs.

I’m not that Doctor, or even a doctor, just a corpsman. The real doctor is Doc Patel, the Medical Officer. He oversees Mrs. Saxon’s drugs, an’ helps the Master's experiments with the prisoner belowdecks.

I do little stuff. Look after the Joneses. Stitch up lacerations, give coldpacks for bruises. Give sleeping pills to Turner in engineering, though they don’t stop the nightmares.

Even though I’m not a real doctor, Doc Patel gave me his mug. Says he don’t need it. Got a gold caduceus, and it says primum non nocere. What’s that mean, anyway?
