Two old friends talk for the last time...Disclaimer:
Doctor Who and all associated characters and themes belongs to the BBC. Author's Note:
This fic was written back in 2000, though never posted here before. Part of The Renewal Series, my alternative take on the end of the BBC Books Earth Arc. Set after Escape Velocity
, but written before the publication of that novel. The Doctor regains his memories, but finds the reality of his actions hard to accept."It's just the ghost of what you want to be
And the ghost of the past that you live in
It's the ghost of the future that you're frightened of…"
