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.

Title: The Lady of the Night, The Master of the Stars
Author: Forge
Rating: PG
Word Count:
Characters: Drusilla, The Master (Delgado)

Do I seriously need to say more than Drusilla’s narrative ‘voice’ is perfect and she meets the original Master? I feel somehow anything else is unnecessary.

Title: Of Blood and Time
Author: jinxed_wood
Rating: PG / All ages
Word Count: 682
Characters: John Smith (Human Nature), Drusilla

Another cross with an excellent Drusilla POV and a more vulnerable, human Doctor who nearly meets his end in 1913 as a result.

Title: Moving On
Author: Clarissa
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 569
Characters: Sarah Jane Smith, Rupert Giles

A brief character vignette with an ending that brought a smile to my face. Somehow, I just love the idea of these two together. Hmm… (Interesting idea; both of them might have stories to share about leading teenagers into danger at a later time).
