… I want to see a grumpy, slightly drunk Carlyle!Doctor plz. Especially if he uses his own accent and calls his companion (some tough, strong-willed brunette creature who is far too smart and independent) “lass”.
I want Carlyle!Doctor to be halfway to drunk off his ass most of the time, and his companion to just roll her eyes and do most of the work. Then he shows up, verbally bitchslaps the bad guys, and saves the day in five minutes right at the end.
And I want his companion to be all like ‘I had it under control’ and him to just laugh at her and drink more whiskey. (and can his companion be Belle, pretty please?)
