Lord Peter Wimsey / Dorothy L Sayers May 22, 2011

Lord Peter Wimsey – Dorothy L Sayers
Title: A Whimsical Adventure
Author: lostwolf
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 9400
Characters: Ninth Doctor, Rose Tyler, Lord Peter Wimsey, Charles Parker

Well done, and unexpected crossover with Nine and Rose investigating a mystery with Dorothy L Sayers’s famous detective.

Title: Another Time, Another Time
Author: tree_and_leaf
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 501
Characters: Fifth Doctor, Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, Lord Peter Wimsey (in passing)

A gorgeous short, the crossover being almost only in passing, but it’s great – and I especially love the Brigadier getting a chance to have a trip with the Doctor, and his reactions to that.


His Dark Materials / Philip Pullman

Title: A Wind From Another World
Author: Poetry
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 27,465
Characters: Ninth Doctor, Rose Tyler, Jack Harkness, Lyra etc.

Long, well-written crossover fic for Philip Pullman’s series.


The West Wing May 13, 2011

Exploration of Remix_Redux 2011 revealed two excellent West Wing crossovers, the original and the remix:

Title: The Doctor for America
Author: krabapple
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 3208
Characters: Tenth Doctor, Joshua Lyman, Leo McGarry, CJ Cregg, Toby Ziegler, Sam Seaborn, Josiah Bartlet, Donna Moss.

Leo has a new assistant he can’t stand. That would be the Doctor. This is great fun, and also a lovely sequence of vignettes of the Doctor snatching an important moment with each member of the Bartlet for America campaign staff.

Title: They’ve All Gone to Look for America (The Doctor’s Note Remix)
Author: pocky_slash
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 3878
Characters: Eleventh Doctor, Joshua Lyman, CJ Cregg, Sam Seaborn, Leo McGarry, Toby Ziegler

An engaging and very well-characterised remix of the above, in which Eleven finds time to take each of the main West Wing characters listed on a one-off trip in the TARDIS.
