What I Did on My Christmas Holidays by Sally Sparrow was a short story by Steven Moffat. It was the fourth story published in the 2006 Doctor Who Annual. It was later adapted as the TV episode Blink, again by Moffat.
Sally Sparrow is a child who is contacted by the Ninth Doctor after he gets stuck at her aunt's party after the TARDIS burps. The Doctor proceeds to write messages under Sally's wallpaper in her room and send her a video containing messages to Sally from Sally's aunt's party.

Story notes Edit
- This story was later adapted into the TV story Blink. The character remains named Sally Sparrow. Steven Moffat changed the character into an adult as he decreed that children did not like to watch other children acting. The same premise of communication across time using pre-recorded messages also remains, as does the idea of the Doctor being separated from the TARDIS and Sally piloting it to lead him towards it.
- The Ninth Doctor is depicted as travelling without a companion. There were two periods in which this incarnation of the Doctor was separated from Rose Tyler: PROSE: The Beast of Babylon and after The Red Bicycle.
- The Doctor would get into a remarkably similar situation in his next incarnation, due to an encounter with the Weeping Angels. (TV: Blink)
