Overall, very intriguing. I noticed a couple misspellings/wrong word use (women instead of woman stood out), but beyond that, very well done. I liked how it was from the Doctor's perspective and not an all knowing/seeing narrator.

I am rather fond of the 'Idiot narrator' method and whilst it does run the risk of running into problems, such as too-many narrator-type characters. However I think its for the best given my writing style.

Unfortunately misspellings and wrong word use will be preventative due to my dyslexia. I am glad you liked it Kurt.

This may not be my thing per say but it is a decent start to an interesting Fanfiction and I for one will be looking forward to what you put out next.

Do your best, do not doubt your work and most importantly proofread before posting.

I try to proof-read, however I appear to be more literal version of 'Batman' when it comes to finding mistakes.

Rest-Assured I'll pour over this and put up the amended version as soon as I can.

One thing I've found to help when editing is to enlarge the font to about 14-16 point and then print it out. Then go over it with a pen and mark up the changes you see that are needed.

I may have face-palmed at my own stupidity, as it turns out my laptop has a £200 word checker thingie.

Pushed my first update to the forum and dropbox.

Edit: Umm, I might have come up with a really unfair tactic using Barricade's Hyperion patrolstar.
