Doctor Who fanfiction crossovers recs & more

Buffy July 20, 2011

Title: Ten Trips Still To Be Taken
Author: atraphoenix
Rating: All ages / PG
Word Count: 3114
Characters: Tenth Doctor, Drusilla

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.

Title: Apocalypse: The bird in the box
Author: Calapine
Rating: PG / All ages
Word Count: 3276
Characters: Harry Sullivan, Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, Sergeant Benton, Liz Shaw, Rupert Giles.

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.

 

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.

Short ficlet in tribute to both T P McKenna and Nicholas Courtney:

Title: An Unexpected Ally
Author: kalypso_v
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 400
Characters: Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, President Sarkoff

On Lindor, all hope seems to be lost, but Sarkoff may be about to receive assistance from the most unlikely source imaginable. This is lovely (and, of course, Blake and the Doctor are behind it all), but written in tribute to both T P McKenna and Nicholas Courtney and their respective characters, this can’t but leave the reader with a smile.

 

Tomb Raider / Lara Croft October 3, 2010

Title: Disposable
Author: Adrian Tullberg
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1114
Characters: Third Doctor, Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, Jo Grant, Sergeant Benton, Mike Yates, The Master (Delgado)

Good use of a crossover, with an explanation for Lara Croft on the one hand, and a properly sinister plan for the Master on the other.

 

Monty Python November 14, 2009

Title: Dead Master Sketch
Author: Astrid
Rating: PG
Word Count: 904
Characters: Fourth Doctor, The Master (Beevers), The Master (Ainley), Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart

Erm, if the title of this needs any explanation you probably shouldn’t be reading. In the meantime, I shall go away and snigger some more to myself.

 

The Avengers November 13, 2009

Title: Miss Romanadvoratrelundar, You’re Needed
Author: dblauvelt
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 820
Characters: Romana III, John Steed

One of those ‘what cross is this?’ stories that I have slightly spoiled by putting here, but nevertheless, one to make the reader smile – and a get-out clause for a Post-Time War Romana.

Title: Spies Like Who?
Author: Clarissa
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 9622 (8 chapters)
Characters: Fourth Doctor, Sarah Jane Smith, Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, Tenth Doctor, Rose Tyler, John Steed, Emma Peel

An engaging adventure taking place in two time zones, but with everyone nicely in character. (Well, certainly on the DW side, me being Avengers-ignorant).

 

Carry On Films June 20, 2009

Okay, so it’s just me crossing these so far, but it’s been fun. And, seriously, someone had to do it.

Carry On Cowboy

Title:How The West Was Lost
Author: vvj5
Rating: All Ages / PG (Some Carry-on-ness in the middle)
Word Count: 24,486 (9 Chapters)
Characters: Third Doctor, Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, Marshall P Knutt, Judge Burke, Annie Oakley, Belle, Johnny Finger (the Rumpo Kid), Big Heap, Little Heap (et al).

Since Jon Pertwee played the ill-fated sheriff in Cowboy and it also starred Peter Butterworth (better known in DW circles as the Meddling Monk) and Angela Douglas (later Doris Lethbridge-Stewart), somebody had to do this. Really.

Abroad, Cowboy, Don’t Lose Your Head, Screaming, Nurse and Behind

Title: Carrying On
Author: vvj5
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: Drabbles
Characters: Eighth Doctor, Sixth Doctor, Peri Brown, Third Doctor, Second Doctor, Tenth Doctor, First Doctor, Joan Sims (in various guises).

A collection of drabbles featuring Joan Sims’s characters from the above films kissing various Doctors. Well, except for one time she preferred the Medding Monk (sort of).

Look, did I ever claim to be sane here? I think not.
