As the day wore on, he was seen by more Doctors. He even consented to a brain scan once he was convinced that it wasn’t going to wipe his mind. They’ve used that equipment on aliens before. In the end they concluded that he was indeed healthy, even if they couldn’t make heads or tails of his brain scan. He still had the brain of a Time Lord, just the body of a human. His reflexes were also slightly faster than an average human. He gloated a little when the optometrist determined he did need glasses for reading. (“You thought I was just showing off, didn’t you Rose Tyler?”)
He was discharged from the medical ward and he was given some plain looking clothes to wear out as his blue suit and burgundy trainers were thrown out. This unnerved him more than he let on. Those were his last pieces of his identity he had left and they were just chucked in the bin.

It was the sound of a beating heart that came to him first in the darkness.
Uh oh, the right one’s stopped beating. I need to get that one started again!
He started concentrating on the rhythm.
The left one seems a bit slow. Why’s it beating so slowly?
He tried to breathe in using his respiratory bypass to reduce any stress on his lungs in case they were injured. He ended up gasping for air instead.
Well… that’s never happened before…
“It’s okay Doctor. I’m here. Just stay calm.” It was Rose’s voice. He could feel her one of her hands wrapped around his and the fingers of her other hand drifting through his hair. But how could he stay calm when one of his hearts had failed and his respiratory bypass was suddenly non-existent? He also couldn’t get his eyes open. They felt so heavy.
“I gotta… got

Rose stood and just stared at the square indent in the sand where the TARDIS was standing just moments before. It was gone. He was gone. The man she loved above all else. She promised him that she would stay with him forever. She crossed entire universes just to see him again, and she succeeded. She thought that she could finally fulfill her promise to him and that he would at last allow himself to show her just how much she knew she meant to him. She saw it on his face when he first laid eyes on her, the way he ran to her.
That damn Dalek.
Things suddenly had to get so complicated, and yet so very simple. Now there was two of him: one that would live to an impossible age, and one who would age with her. She chose the latter. She chose the one that could promise to be with her forever, even if it meant they both grow old and eventually die. She chose the one who wasn’t afraid t

He hadn’t intended to bring her there. He was aiming for a warm climate and Rose unwisely dressed for that kind of weather. But like its Earth counterpart, Siberia was cold. Freezing even. He had landed at the middle of a mountain range and Rose found the view so incredibly breathtaking she couldn’t take her eyes off it. She was so taken in with the view that she didn’t even realise she was shivering. The Doctor shrugged off his heavy leather coat and in an unprecedented act of chivalry draped it over her shoulders. This action was enough to jar her away from the view in front of her. She looked over at him.DW: Doctors Make the Worst Patients by Shantella
“Thanks, but won’t you be cold?” He chuckled at Rose’s concern.
“Nope! I’m fine. Hot, cold… doesn’t matte
