Honestly, this is exactly how not to write a FanFiction imo.

And especially how not to write a storygame.

We were given the illusion of a choice, but no real say in changing anything. All that happens if you click the "wrong choice" (besides the last two choices of stay or go, at least) is you die, and then is given the option to go back and pick the other one. The ending is unaffected by anything you may have done in the game, and is just a simple "stay or go" choice.
It's ridiculously linear, in other words.

Hell, you didn't even change much. It's literally just things that happened in Doctor Who, except there's an extra character in who changes nothing about the story.

Honestly, I've seen quite a few Doctor Who Fanfictions and that is the thing that bothers me the most.
Most of them, don't have a speck of originality in them.
For god's sake, you have a time machine and a timelord. You could invent worlds made of fire, a galaxy who's currency is color, and any of that sort of thing. You could write about going back in time and finding out Abe Lincoln really *was* a vampire hunter (except the vampires were really just the water-creatures from The Vampires of Venice).
Just there is so much potential here, but people seem to want to stick to the storyline, and I don't understand why.

Either way, giving this a low score for lack of originality.

Well your story was legible and coherent, so that's something. However it was also stolen straight from the the show. Using elements of the show or even rewriting scenes so they happen differently can make great fanfiction, but all you did was rewrite a couple scenes with a new character. This character didn't even add anything to these scenes or change them in anyway. They were completely unnecessary to the plot.

The narration was extremely boring. The pacing was rushed, there was little details and moments went by far to fast. When I'm reading all I see is what you show me. Describe the scenery, let character's actions and moments help bring them to life. Also, paragraphs! Use them.

There is also the issue of your choices. There weren't really any. Every page only had two choices, one where I lived, one where I died. It made the plot completely linear and boring. And then when I did die you wouldn't even let me end the game. Every death page only had the option of returning to the previous page. If you're going to have death pages let people die. If they want to keep playing there's a go back button for that.

In the future if you want to write a fanfic, please come up with a semi-original plot for the characters to do. With Doctor Who you have all of time and space to explore. Why don't travel with your favorite doctor to your favorite time period and save the day? Or use your imagination and you can create any possible world or future. It's all up to you, but don't just write a narrative of the show's plot.

It was actually really fun!! SPOILER ALERT

At the start when it said statue I got really creeped out. I’m not an idiot I know that it was a weeping angel
I just wanna say it was really great with all the callbacks to Matt Smith’s era as the doctor 11 out of 10

This wasn't a good story. Every time I chose something you didn't want me to, you made it so I had to go back to choose the "right" choice. I can forgive linearity when it is a long and interesting story. This story was neither long nor very interesting. And being forced to take the path that the author wants you to take makes me think you would be better off putting this on a fan fiction website than a website called Choose Your Story.

This is not interactive fiction. This is a linear story with all choices railroading you to the "real" story.
