Friday Fictioneers is hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields who provides us with a photo prompt each week, with a challenge to write a 100-word story inspired by the photo. (Apologies to the late Spike Miligan for stealing his witch-doctor joke but he was a big fan of recycling.)

‘Do you think that’s where he lives?’


‘The doctor.’

‘Which doctor?’

‘He’s not a witch-doctor. He’s a real doctor.’


‘Exactly, Dr. Who.’

‘So why would you think he lives there?’

‘Well, not live there but somewhere to chill.’

‘And you think that because …?’

‘Because of the Tardis.’

‘That half-painted black box? It’s nothing like an old police call box.’

‘What if the Tardis is inside that box?’

‘Like Schrodinger’s cat?’


‘And all of those cables?’

‘To recharge his tools, like his sonic screwdriver.

‘Man, I know pot’s legal here but you’ve got to cut back.’

    • Thanks, Rochelle. As one of those rare Australians who grew up playing baseball and watching Abbott and Costello, and one who went through their Cheech and Chong period (but did not inhale or have sexual relations with them) I appreciate the references. I don’t know if Dr Who is as massive in the US as it is in the UK and Australia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doctor_Who so some of the references might have passed some readers by.
