14. The 11th Doctor - Part Two



Hide, and ghosts make you want to do just that,

But a tale of ghosts? The Doctor smells a rat.

It turns out it's just a poor soul in need of help,

But when the Doctor see's the two loving Creeper's they yelp.



Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS, they must race though the ship,

Seeing the swimming pool, library, cot and jump with a skip.

Also a book on the Time War,

And in a showdown the Doctor tries to show Clara's enigma the door.


The Crimson Horror, Victorian Yorkshire is a deadly time,

Full of Mrs Gillyflower's Red Leach venom slime.

But with the help of Jenny, Vastra and Strax she had a fall,

From the tower where she wanted to launch a venomous rocket so tall.


But Clara's caught by the kids she looks after,

And at the thought of time travel they share some laughter.

So, in Nightmare in Silver, it seems fun faces rejection,

As an abandoned theme park is home to a silver resurrection...


The Cyberiad is faster, stronger and don't have to stress,

When they meet something new they just say "Upgrade in Progress."

With Cybermites, stealth and a sleek new design,

The Cybermen are back and revolutionised for the time.


The Name of the Doctor, and information is told,

To The Partnernoster Gang are about tales, old.

The coordinates of Trenzalore are given, and friend's taken away,

Clara has to tell the Doctor to save the day.



"The Doctor has a secret he will take to the grave, it is discovered."

But it seems Trenzalore is the place of the Doctor's grave, and it's been uncovered.

There Clara and the Doctor journey, to his grave,

Where the Whispermen and Simeon have a rave.




Inside the tomb lies the Doctor's time stream in light,

Simeon made him, Vastra, Strax, Jenny and Clara enter out of spite.

If you enter you are scattered along the stream,

And Simon steps in, making the Doctor's life no longer gleam.




The Doctor collapses, as all his victories are reversed,

His timeline, by Simeon, is now cursed.

Strax and Jenny disappear,

And Clara for her Doctor, sheds a tear.



Clara realises she is the key,

She gets up from the Doctor and her knee.

She's the Impossible Girl, this is why,

The Doctor's already seen her do it, but now it means she might die.



She prepares to jump in, knowing she was soufflé girl after all, 

Clara Oswald against the time stream, standing tall.

Nearing the light the person turned, she,

Clara Oswald said to the Doctor: 'Run you clever boy, and remember me.'



In she goes, and a million versions of her are scattered,

Across the Doctor's time stream to save him, thrown around and splattered.

Clara is born, lives and dies, but had fun,

"I'm the Impossible Girl, and my story, is done."







She's always been there, from the very start,

Helping him along, a big part of the Doctor's heart.

But now she's lost, forever gone,

After saying goodbye to River, the Doctor goes into his stream to save her before long.




She's lost inside, but the Doctor catches up,

She let him save her, the Doctor stepped up.

Reunited, holding her leaf, everything she will be,

From his secret and time stream, the Doctor then did flee...



The Time of the Doctor, to another we say goodbye,

Another incarnation, another face, we know here will die.

After a planet sends a coded message to the world, many species gather,

Amongst them, the Doctor and Clara marking one's final chapter.



Using his friend, Handles the Doctor realises the planet is Gallifrey,

Which really complicates and ruins the day.

Clara and the Doctor then go down to the planet, courtesy of Tasha Lem,

Part of the Church of the Papal Mainframe, but on the ground, the truth field entices them.



In the tower, it's revealed the weakest point in time (the Crack) is what's transmitting the message through the universe,

The Doctor and Handles confirm and converse.

The message is from Gallifrey, who knew?

The message translates as the question: 'DOCTOR WHO?'



If the Doctor gives his name, (with the truth field he cannot lie),

The Time Lords will come through, all aliens will go to war, all will die.

The planet is then revealed as Trenzalore,

The place that shows the Doctor's life the door.



The Doctor sends Clara home, but she refuses to go,

Grabbing the TARDIS as it disappears, shouting 'NO!'

Tasha then dedicates her church to Silence, that must fall,

So the Time Lords do not descend over Trenzalore at all.



The Doctor then protects the planet for three hundred years,

And lives through bloodshed, hurt and tears.

Then Clara returns, having been in space,

Feeling overwhelmed, and out of place.


The Doctor reveals he is at his last face,

There is no regeneration to replace.

Above them, Tasha is attacked as the Daleks mass for war,

Also the Kovarion chapter is revealed to have been part of the Church, but broke away, after that they got more than they asked for.



The siege of Trenzalore becomes all out war,

As Clara is sent home again, while spaceships soar.

Until the only ones left are the Daleks to die,

As in the Silence the Doctor forms an ally.




Again the TARDIS comes for Clara, Tasha flying the box,

Her face serious and as hard as rocks.

She reveals the Doctor will no longer be free to roam.

And that no man should die alone.



"And now it's time for one last bow.

Like all your other selves, Eleven's hour is over now.

The Clock is striking twelves."



The Doctor then bids Clara goodbye, 

As by the Daleks hands he prepares to die.

Clara turns to the crack with anger and wit, 

All she can do now is shout: 'Help him change the future, do it!'



Just as the Doctor feels he is about to die,

The Crack in TIme appears in the sky.

It's the Time Lords giving to the Doctor 14 new lives,

Much to his happiness and surprise.



The Daleks panic, 'Emergency! Emergency! The Doctor is regenerating!'

Clara watches, worried they will be separating.

With one last laugh, and orange light above, laughing at the Daleks as if they are fools,

The Doctor says 'Daleks! Never tell me the rules!"



Back in the TARDIS, Clara see's fish custard,

Knowing saying goodbye will be hard.

After his reset, the Doctor smiles with quiet glee,

"We are all different people, all through our lives, and that's good you gotta keep moving so long as you don't forget all the people you used to be. I will not forget one line of this. I will always remember when the Doctor was me."



He then see's Amelia, the first face his face saw,

He won't be away from her anymore.

And knowing it's the end of her Doctor's fight,

He see's his grown up Amy Pond, again, who bids him 'Raggedy man… goodnight.'




He takes of his bow tie,

Letting it on the floor lie,

As it's his time to go, 

His body becomes aglow.



There are many ways to describe, but an easier translation,

One word, one magician, it’s called: ‘Regeneration.’



A new face, a new man,

New adventures and soon a new companion clan.

Don't forget the youngest, and oldest facing many a foe,

With each one, a grin, and a 'Geronimo!'
