Rec - Mortal by Booster

Story: Mortal
Author: Booster
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 630
Author's Summary: What about those people swept up in the Doctor’s trail? People have a nasty habit of dying when he’s around. Set just before the end of Aliens of London.
Characters/Pairings: 9th Doctor, Unspecified companion
Warnings: None
Recced because: Booster is one of the best crossover authors. However, this story is Booster in non-crossover mode, showing us the human cost of the Doctor's adventures in a small vignette.

Major Henri Ladouceur heard his death sentence over a glass of reasonable cognac, from a man with a maniacal grin.

“Hello! I’m the Doctor,” boomed the tall leather jacketed man bounding over and shaking the Major’s spare hand. “Isn’t this fabulous?”

Ever since Henri had joined UNIT, he’d heard the tales darkly whispered among the surviving personnel. Of the strange man known only as the Doctor, his scientific prowess and the death and destruction that followed in his wake. The only thing worse than this sudden, unexpected meeting would have been to come round a corner suddenly and find his infamous blue box.
