Jonah was the eleventh short story in the Short Trips anthology Short Trips: Life Science. It was written by Todd Green. It featured the Eighth Doctor.


The Doctor becomes concerned about the health of a boy called Jonah, who has chronic granulomatous disorder (CGD). His investigations lead him to another boy under Doctor Richard Sterling's care called Brian. Brian looks almost identical to Jonah, apart from being a bit older, but the boys are unaware of each other's existence. The Doctor decides to look around Sterling's house to find out what is going on. He finds notes from tests conducted on Jonah. The notes reveal that Jonah is a healthy clone of Brian. Sterling created Jonah to cure Brian and plans to kill him. Sterling arrives back home to find the Doctor, who evades Sterling's grasp and takes Jonah somewhere he will be safe and happy for the rest of his life, leaving Richard Sterling still looking for a way to cure Brian.
