The StoryDoctor of Who
A good while back I posted a poll to see what y'all thought should be the basics of a Doctor Who story I was planning, sort of authorship by committee. Well after a long time of not being able to get around to it, here's my idea for a beginning, the opening teaser. Once I get it mapped out I'll go into dialogue and exposition and all that good junk. Right now, I'm just trying to get the outline.
It's a Tenth Doctor and Rose story. It doesn't take place at any particular time, since the show has established that weeks and months may take place between episodes.

The TARDIS lands for no readily apparent reason, at random, materializes near a tiny Welsh village. The Doctor and Rose venture into the village and are surprised to find it empty. There are signs the village was peopled recently, as recently as maybe a few hours before. The Doctor pokes around for a few moments, and he and Rose are about to head back to the TARDIS when they are met by a small band of villagers, all of whom look not-very-happy and are brandishing makeshift weapons.
“Revenge!” hollers a man in front, who brandishes an axe, as he charges The Doctor.

Now I'll open it back up to some committee suggestions. Does anyone have any suggestions, questions, comments, etc.? If you can't recall the poll (April, 2005), here it is. I do have something of a general idea for the plot, but I'm not married to it. If anyone's got ideas, the field's completely open.
