Rating: All ages
Word Count: 997
Characters: Samantha Briggs, Jamie McCrimmon, Second Doctor, The Duke of Wellington.

Author: johne
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 774
Characters: Second Doctor, Jamie McCrimmon, Victoria Waterfield, Father Hernandez

In Silver Nemesis, Lady Peinforte and the Doctor both remember their former meeting – under less than ideal circumstances… Of course, there would be an unexpected complication.


British Comedy: Hancock’s Half Hour & The Two Ronnies July 11, 2009

Well, I was trying for an X-Files post today, but I ended up with this motley collection of unlikely comedy crossovers. What can I say? I’m strange that way.

The Two Ronnies

Title: Bric a Brac
Author: vvj5
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1403
Characters: Ninth Doctor, Nyder, Ronnie Barker, Ronnie Corbett

The Ninth Doctor pops into a handy hardware store in search of a sonic screwdriver and gets more than he bargained for.


Title: Close to the Wind
Author: johne
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: Drabble
Characters: Ninth Doctor, Rose Tyler.

1899: The Doctor and Rose encounter the Phantom Raspberry Blower of Old London Town.


Hancock’s Half Hour

Title: Doctor Hancock’s Half Hour
Author: The Secretive Bus
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 3305
Characters: The Doctor (Tony Hancock), Sid James, Bill Kerr, Hattie Jacques, Kenneth Williams.

Not so much a crossover as a ‘What if Doctor Who had started in the 1950s starring Tony Hancock?’ Ish. Really. It’s insane and marvellous.


Star Trek June 28, 2009

Finally, I boldly go into the realms of the really obvious…

The Original Series / 2009 Reboot
(In my ignorance it’s a bit hard to tell which is which in some cases…)

Title: Section 3-52
Author: atraphoenix
Rating: PG
Word Count: 1529
Characters: Zoe Herriot, James T Kirk, Spock.

I think the author’s sumnmary says it all: Zoe couldn’t continue to wander around the bridge in that catsuit. It was Kirk’s job – his duty, even – to get her out of it.


These are both definitely 2009:

Title: Oh, I Beg Your Pardon, We Appear to be in the Wrong Universe
Author: mithrel
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1786
Characters: Tenth Doctor, Martha Jones, Spock


Title: A Delicate Destiny
Author: jinxed_wood
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 870
Characters: Tenth Doctor, Spock

I may not be an expert on Star Trek, but I can recognise well-written fic with some good characterisation and a spot of humour here and there and this is certainly one of those.


Title: Threads in the Pattern
Author: Azar
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 637
Characters: Jack Harkness, Malcolm Reed, Jonathan Archer, Travis Mayweather, Trip, T’Pol and Phlox

On relationships.


And a drabble, mainly because it also features Zoe:

Title: A Fair Cop
Author: johne
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: Drabble
Characters: Zoe Herriot, Second Doctor, Jamie McCrimmon, Jonathan Archer, Phlox, Malcolm Reed


More Red Dwarf June 22, 2009

A couple of Rimmer stories (again from that LJ crossover meme that’s going around lately). Oh, and a drabble.

Title: No Kind of Atmosphere
Author: JJPOR
Rating: PG
Word Count: 610
Characters: Romana I, Arnold Rimmer

Romana encounters Arnold Judas Rimmer. As always, she’s equal to the challenge.


Title: We Don’t Need Another Hero
Author: JJPOR
Rating: PG
Word Count: 863
Ninth Doctor, Rose Tyler, Jack Harkness, Ace Rimmer

Oh my, oh my. I’m reduced to incoherent giggles merely thinking about it. If the list of characters leaves you unmoved, then just let me say: spot on and, very, very funny. The Doctor’s reaction is priceless.


Title: Cassandra Truth
Author: john_elliott
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: Drabble
Characters: Tenth Doctor, David Lister, Cat.


Sherlock Holmes June 7, 2009

Title: Tools of the Trade
Author: Padawanpooh
Rating: All Ages/ PG
Word Count: 935
Characters: Jack Harkness, Sherlock Holmes, Dr Watson

Jack in his travels through time the slow way encounters Sherlock Holmes in the 1890s. Nice.


Title: Murder at the Mill
Author: johne
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1016
Characters: First Doctor, Sherlock Holmes

Sherlock Holmes encounters the First Doctor in the course of his investigations. And, of course, logic dictates Sherlock’s willingness to believe in the improbable. (And aren’t I lucky? This one was written for me!)


I should also mention that, while not exactly crossovers, John Elliott has also written a fair few Sherlock Holmes Storytime tales for This Time Round. These feature various narrators (from Dr Watson himself to the newest Master) retelling the stories with DW characters in the roles. It is indeed as crazy as it sounds, but also a huge amount of fun.

The Coming of the Hound (The Hound of the Baskervilles).
The Speckled Band
The Three Garridebs
The Bruce Partington Plans
The Adventure of Charles Augustus Milverton
The Adventure of the Engineer’s Thumb
The Adventure of the Musgrave Ritual


Discworld April 5, 2009

I’m all in awe of people who’ll risk Pratchett crossovers and even more so if they come off really well.

The Dalek Invasion of Discworld by TigerKat
All Ages (PG, mild swearing)
Word Count: 720
Characters: Daleks, Samuel Vimes, Ridcully, Nanny Ogg, Granny Weatherwax, Death, Rincewind, the Luggage.

If the title doesn’t make you want to go and read it, there’s nothing I can say. (Except that it does indeed do as it promises and it all ends exactly as you would expect.)


This is How the Universe Ends by googlebrat and perryvic
Word Count: 3827
Characters: Death, Jack Harkness

Jack’s inability to die is holding up the end of the universe. He and Death try to come to a solution. It works so well (particularly the game-play, which includes Monopoly, Twister and Cluedo) and the resolution is excellent. Very Death and typical Jack.


Trouble in Store by John Elliott
All Ages
Word Count: 15,840
Characters: Jamie McCrimmon, Second Doctor, Victoria Waterfield, Zoe Herriot, Samantha Briggs, Liz Shaw, Gia Kelly

Another This Time Round story, but a proper story, too, of a Pratchett plot (from Reaper Man invading Nameless. Jamie, Victoria, Zoe, Samantha Briggs, Gia Kelly and Liz Shaw team up to combat the threat and get more than they bargained for.
