Doctor Who fanfiction crossovers recs & more

Star Trek: Voyager November 8, 2010

Title: Five Times the Doctor Got in the Way of Captain Janeway (and One Time They Got Along Just Fine)
Author: vvj5
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 5526
Characters: Eleventh Doctor, First Doctor, Vicki, Third Doctor, Jo Grant, Ninth Doctor, Eighth Doctor, Charley Pollard, Kathryn Janeway, Chakotay, Tom Paris, Tuvok

A case of multi-era nonsense by me in which the Doctor and Janeway keep running into each other in the wrong order, so I’ll say no more.


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.


Agatha Christie’s Poirot November 22, 2009

Title: Ego Clash
Author: vvj5
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 567
Characters: Third Doctor, Jo Grant, Hercule Poirot

It’s time for the denouement and Poirot takes centre stage, the identity of the murderer to be unveiled… and then someone steals the limelight and insults his moustache. Incroyable!


The Eurovision Song Contest November 10, 2009

Title: Nul Points
Author: Gary Merchant
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 2766
Characters: Third Doctor, Jo Grant

This isn’t strictly a crossover. In fact, being set at in specific space and time, maybe it should be historical. But the Doctor investigates fixed voting at the Eurovision Song Contest (while approving of Terry Wogan’s commentary) feels like a crossover to me. And it’s marvellous fun.


Nero Wolfe books – Rex Stout June 22, 2009

Title: “The Orchid Thief”
Author: leviathan
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 15292
Characters: Nero Wolfe, Archie Goodwin, Tenth Doctor, Martha Jones, Third Doctor, Jo Grant, The Master (Delgado).

I have no idea about this cross, but the story impresses from all angles. It’s well written, it’s fun, everyone is in character and I particularly love the latter part with the 70s DW trio – the description of Jo is spot on.


Chalet School April 18, 2009

What the heck, let’s not go too mainstream just yet…! (For the uninitiated, the Chalet School series by Elinor M. Brent-Dyer ran from 1925-1970), the early stories being set in Austria, the last run in Switzerland.

Two CS/DW AUs:
Sarah Jane of the Chalet School by paranoidangel
All Ages; AU
Word Count: 26,065
Characters: Sarah Jane Smith, Harry Sullivan, Joey Bettany, Madge Russell, Grizel Cochrane, Juliet Carrick, James Russell, Jack Maynard (et al.)

Sarah is in need of a job and gets a teaching post at the Annexe of her old school. Meanwhile, Dr Harry Sullivan joins the Sanatorium. (Despite this, it doesn’t end the way Elinor would have ended it.)


Companions at the Chalet School by hhertzof
All Ages; AU
Word Count: 36,184
Characters: Sarah Jane Smith, Barbara Wright, Josephine Grant, Ace McShane, Tenth Doctor, Seventh Doctor; Hilda Annersley, Joey Maynard, Kathie Ferrars, Althea Glenyon (et al.)

This is in many ways so true to the series and could almost not be an AU if you wanted it not to be. Seven’s actions around the scene (including getting himself a teaching post briefly), Sarah and Ace’s “I think we’re going to be the girls who don’t fit in.” and the loving but merciless employment of just about every Chalet School cliche makes this well worth a read for fans of both series.

hhertzof has also written this short Chalet cross:

A Letter to Joey
All Ages
Word Count: 937
Characters: Joey Maynard, Sarah Jane Smith, Harry Sullivan, the triplets.

Sarah writes a letter to Joey after the Invasion of the Bane. (I’d match Harry with a different trip, but that’s a minor quibble.) What Sarah doesn’t write is more telling than what she does.
