INT. TARDIS – DAY
— I worry.
About getting sick again. About the cancer recurring.
I don’t know who to say that to. So I thought I’d said it to you.
Seeing as you’re a Doctor. (Beat)
Once you have it, it’s with you all the time. Not quite a shadow.
I mean, my check-ups are all fine. But it made me think.
I thought I should talk about it. Cos, those nightmares, made me realise, that fear’s still there..
The Doctor nods. Beat. She walks towards Graham-she reaches for both his hands and places them in her own-she smiles
I should say a reassuring thing now, shouldn’t I? About life, maybe just a little about death. Does life sound like just the thing for you?
They say the fear of the unknown is a lot worse than when it actually arrives-when it does-no, if it does-you won’t give in to it, you’ll stare it dead in the eye, the face of death itself, and you’ll say ‘you come and find me, and you drag me away, but I won’t contribute’-because you’re strong Graham, the strongest man I know, I meant every word of that-the fear is there, but here you are too. Standing still while the tide threatens to wash over you, refusing to be pulled in. Promise me you never will.
I can try Doc
The Doctor leans forward and gives Graham a soft kiss on the cheek
Glad you heard me
(she moves away)
I love you too Doc
Also added a couple of extra moments of dialogue, have fun looking out for them
