Warning: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Characters: Ninth Inspector, Grover (Sesame Street), Lily Taylor (Inspector Spacetime)
Summary: The Ninth Inspector, played by Mark Williams, saw a return to genuine, somewhat realistic, and well-plotted tales of the earlier Inspectors before the strange wackiness of the sixth morph or the staid, ill-written episodes of the seventh. In addition, Williams brought a gravitas to the role that drew back many wayward fans, while creating even more.Not all involved in the Inspector Spacetime franchise were pleased, however. One writer, in response to several rejected scripts, wrote a series of short stories featuring her plots. 'The Monster at the End of this Story' (TMES) was intended for early series two, shortly after the introduction of Lily Taylor. The episode deals with the initial friction between the Inspector and Lily in Rory's absence, while also alluding back to the well-known puppet episode from the Sixth Inspector's run.
