Short but sweet crossover ficlet. Very nice.
Amusing vignette – the confusion of non-linear meetings for time travellers and immortals… (The author has also written two drabble crossovers with Methos and the Doctor: Geodesy – the First Doctor in the Library of Alexandria – and Fall, a double drabble featuring the Second Doctor and Methos in the Himalayas).
I don’t really know Highlander (still) but this is a well-written, thoughtful crossover, with Martha and Methos (and the Doctor) meeting in a non-linear way, not unlike River Song and the Doctor would later.
Sapphire & Steel December 7, 2011
An excellent and interesting short crossover, but it will make a lot more sense if you have seen Assignment Three of Sapphire & Steel. (So also has some mild spoilers for that story.) But I like the meeting and the way it works, because the two universes aren’t as easy to mesh as they seem on appearances.
In which Romana provides a neat and well-done fixit for Sapphire & Steel’s final episode – so beware spoilers if you’re unfamiliar with the crossover show.
Hugely enjoyable and well written short crossover, even for someone like me who’s never read the books.
A brief encounter on a train that is perfectly, perfectly in character for both and rather lovely, playing on the fact that Tallulah and Jo were both played by Miranda Raison.
Sarah Jane meets an undercover spook in the 80s.
Dalziel & Pascoe / Reginald Hill July 20, 2011
I’m not especially familiar with the novels or TV version, but I didn’t have to be to enjoy a very entertaining ficlet. Somehow there’s always something about a TV detective finding he’s got the Doctor to contend with that never grows old…
It’s an odd combination, but it works, and the use of Drusilla’s POV gives us the Doctor and his travels in a new light. Beautiful, and clever, and sinister.
A dark and Doctor-less UNIT AU crossover, which is very well-written and not without hope. It’s also an especially good Harry story – well-characterised, and not an imbecile.
