Drabble: Secrets of the Master

Title:  Secrets of the Master.

Author:  Cyber Moggy

Disclaimer:  Doctor Who does not belong to me, it belongs to the BBC.

Author’s notes:  This was prompted by a couple of stray remarks on the Mark of the Rani DVD about how much Anthony Ainley loved cricket.

 

The two men stared at each other across the narrow strip of well-manicured grass, each of them utterly determined that his team should prevail.  The Master narrowed his eyes as he stared at his blond adversary, taking in the confident way he tapped his weapon against the grass.

 

A game involving a lot of people standing in a muddy field, attempting to hit a small, hard-stuffed leather ball with a fairly thin strip of willow timber was something only humans could invent.

 

He bowled the ball.

 

The five sticks behind the Fifth Doctor toppled.

 

Secretly, he’d always loved this game.
