Star Crossed

Doctor Who fanfiction crossovers recs & more

Red Dwarf March 29, 2009

British sf shows should stick together, don’t you think? Some talented ficcers certainly do…

Last of Your Species Support Group by Amy_Wolf
All Ages
Word Count: 2007
Characters: Tenth Doctor, Martha Jones, Cassandra, Scaroth, Davros, Daleks, Empress of Racnoss, Sutekh, Dave Lister, Arnold Rimmer.

A thoroughly entertaining cross with a twist. Let’s just say that the Doctor’s not popular with the other members of this support group. Plus points, of course, for Rimmer meeting another version of himself (one we’ve encountered previously, but he hasn’t).


First Contact by JJPOR
Word Count: 2242
Characters: Seventh Doctor, Ace, Holly, Dave Lister, Arnold Rimmer, Cat, Kryten.

Rimmer finally gets to meet an alien and Lister gets to meet another human (albeit one who likes blowing things up a lot). Excellent, fully in keeping with both shows and very funny.


Light Years by idontlikegravy
All Ages / Teen (only ish for a line or two. It is Red Dwarf, after all).
Word Count: 5048
Characters: Tenth Doctor, Holly, Arnold Rimmer, David Lister, Kryten, Cat.

I’ve only just now found this and it’s lovely. I think it might even be my favourite. The Doctor’s thrown 3 million light years off course, messing up Lister’s poker night. Which means that Rimmer gets to meet an alien and Holly needs repairing with washing-up liquid. (And I love any good use of Holly.)

Incompatible by Daibhid Ceannaideach
All Ages
Word Count: Double Drabble
Characters: Fourth Doctor, K9, Skutter

K9’s in love with a skutter, but it’ll never work out.

And if anyone knows which fic it is features Martha getting accidentally transported to Red Dwarf to give medical aid, I’ll add that as well.
