“A Shop Girl With A Broken Fob Watch” by LicieOIC
Pairing: Tenth Doctor/Rose Tyler
Word Count: 30,864
Warnings: NSFW, spoilers for Broadchurch
Following an emergency landing in the Dorset town of Broadchurch, the Doctor must hide his Time Lord self inside a fob watch to escape some vicious hunters, leaving Rose to look after his human self, Alec Hardy.
After years away from the show (and fandom, tbh), I have spent the last two weeks bingeing Doctor Who (I finally made it to Twelve…powering through to Thirteen). One thing became apparent really quickly: I ship Ten and Rose more than ever.
This fanfic is a crossover between DW and David Tennant’s other extremely popular show, Broadchurch, and also borrows the premise of the DW episode “The Family of Blood.” So basically, we get Rose taking care of a human Doctor who doesn’t remember he’s the doctor and they go on proper dates…it just makes my little shipping heart super happy okay? Especially after watching “Doomsday.”
Anyway, read this if you ship Ten and Rose. You won’t regret it.
