Welcome to “Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge.” Each week I will be posting a photo I grab off the internet and challenge bloggers to write a relatively short flash fiction piece inspired by the photo. While there are no definitive style or word limits, I suggest trying to keep your posts to under 300 words.

          1. There were very few I didn’t like. Sarah Jane was the girl next door type and being young I really liked her.
            Goodness… Romana is who Tom Baker married in real life…well the actress…

            I just remember Adric talking about the companions.
