Title: There’s No Noddy
Author: Derek Metaltron
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1595
Characters: Tenth Doctor, Donna Noble, Second Doctor, Zoe Heriot, Noddy, Big Ears, PC Plod

This makes great use of cutting between The Unicorn and the Wasp to The Mind Robber to make one of the unlikeliest crossovers ever occur. It’s very entertaining.

Author: travels_in_time
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 547
Characters: Jack Harkness, Owen Harper, Toshiko Sato, Gwen Cooper, Ianto Jones, Wowbagger the Infinitely Prolongued

This is brilliantly in character for both shows, very funny, and very Jack. What else could you ask for in a fic this short?


Title: the people you meet (the things are also people)

Word Count:
Characters: Ninth Doctor, Rose Tyler, Arthur Dent, Rose Tyler, Zaphod Beeblebrox, Trillian

Arthur’s quest for tea leads him to the alien who’s just bought up the entire contents of the shop they were in, and to Rose Tyler, and trouble. Lovely, fun cross, the narrator’s voice very much in-keeping for both worlds.

And: “Get ready, Rose, for the most excruciatingly mind-numbingly dull bit of planet-saving you’ll ever be involved in.”
“What, why? What’re we going to do?”
“How are you at filling in forms?”

Title: Mind The Gap
Author: moonmonkey
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 60,992 (18 chapters)
Characters: Eighth Doctor, Fitz Kreiner, Anji Kapoor, Romana

Again, I don’t know the cross, but this is also simply a well-written fic tied into the EDAs.


Nine / Firefly November 20, 2010

No less than three Nine-era crossovers with Firefly. Enjoy.


Title: Out of Joint
Author: HonorH
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 44597
Characters: Ninth Doctor, Rose Tyler, Jack Harkness, Mal Reynolds, River Tam, Inara Serra, Book, Simon Tam, Jayne Cobb, Kaylee Frye

I haven’t read this yet (not wanting to be any more spoiled for Firefly, which I’ve not yet seen) but this author writes excellent crossovers, and this long fic doesn’t look as if it’s any exception.


Title: Cover Stories
Author: ChristinaK
Rating: Teen (For Jack, and several cases of accidental nudity, and Jack)
Word Count: 3266
Characters: Jack Harkness, Ninth Doctor, Rose Tyler, Mal Reynolds, Inara Serra, River Tam, Zoe Washburne, Simon Tam, Kaylee Frye

There’s a party with a defabricator and two sets of people trying to walk off with a priceless artefact. This is very entertaining and excellently done. As above, Teen warning for Jack and several cases of nudity (including Jack).


Title: Respite (The Unquiet Dead)
Author: kaydee falls
Rating: All ages / PG
Word Count: 1997
Characters: Ninth Doctor, Rose Tyler, Jack Harkness, River Tam

Lovely, well-written, thoughtful crossover with excellent use of River to bring an enlightening perspective to the TARDIS team.

Title: World As Myth

It’s not a crossover I know, but this certainly looks like an interesting story – something a little bit different.
