Now for the second story. This one was inspired by the Eighth
Doctor's musical abilities, his interest in the Beatles, and by
a story I read a while back at "A Teaspoon and an Open
Mind". My apologies to the author as I don't remember the
title. It was a very interesting story and it set me to
thinking...

So here it is:

DOCTORMANIA

The Doctor and Sam were in Brighton for a Beatles Festival.
They weren't just attending the Festival. Ever the one for
new experiences, the Doctor was actually in it. He'd wangled
his way into being the opening act. Sam was well aware he
could sing and he loved the Beatles, but this was
something else.

They'd spent some time in the TARDIS wardrobe, choosing
his costume. Sam had actually persuaded him to wear
something more "Rockstarry". He finally wound up choosing
something straight out of the glitter rock 70's! Totally
incongruous to the music, but soo Doctor! "He always was a
bit anachronistic." Sam thought. But as usual, he made her
heart beat like castenets at the way he looked!

With his beautiful shoulder-length chestnut curls,
sapphire blue satin suit, pale blue t-shirt that matched his
pretty eyes, blue/green scarf(tied round his neck to his left,
ends dangling), he looked like someone from T-Rex. Her
mum would have been drooling and probably have passed
out! He looked like he should be on one of her mum's
favourite old music programmes "Supersonic". Now that would be something, if she ran into her parents. Finally, the Doctor
completed his costume with white canvas deck shoes. Again,
very incongruous, but given his and Ssam's vegetarianism,
very apt.

The Doctor and Sam came into the wings. Sam did a double-
take when she saw the Doctor's back-up band. They were four
men who looked like brothers, same dark hair and extraordinary
eyes. Especially one, he had the most dazzlingly blue eyes,
similar the Doctor's. In fact, Sam could have sworn he looked
a bit like the Doctor! But that was impossible!

The Mistress of Ceremonies came to introduce him as,
"Doctor Octavius". Sam did another double-take. She looked
like the back-up band! Okay. Right.

The Doctor walked onstage to enthusiastic applause. He'd
told Sam earlier that he'd already done one very unique
concert in France. Some years ago, he thought. Sam had been
very disbelieving when he'd described it. Some M.C. that
concert had had.

He started off with some of the most famous Beatles songs.
His curls shone in the stagelights. In seconds, he had
thousands of female fans, including Sam, dancing and singing
along. He'd just finished an energetic rendition of
"Revolution" when, with his fringe started to cling to his forehead,
he announced a change of pace.

He started to sing his own version of "In My Life", changing
"life" to "lives". He'd just got to"There's no one compares
with you", when all hell broke loose. The fans couldn't take
it anymore and rushed the stage. The Doctor went down. It
was all over in minutes.

Sam stared anxiously. At first, all she could see was the
Doctor's lovely hair, even more tousled than usual. Finally,
the screaming fans departed in a multi-coloured wave. Sam
boggled at the incredible sight that met her eyes.

The Doctor was sitting, cross-legged, on the stage floor. He
had the most extraordinary look on his face. He was clutching
his guitar in front of him, holding onto it for dear life. It was
a good thing too. Sam blinked-several times,and boggled-again.
The Doctor was covered, quite literally, all over his body in red
lipstick "kiss-prints". His adoring fans----had taken his
clothes.

The End

Thank you, both! I'm glad you liked the story. A number of my stories are at my Livejournal site. The address is in my profile. I really enjoy writing about the Eighth Doctor. He's a really joy!

The Doctor has such eclectic tastes there is no shortage of subjects to use! A true Renaissance Man!

Me, I'd just like to find one who can fix the garbage disposal.
