In an alternate universe where Sam went with the Doctor and Jamie, they run into Blackadder’s version of Wellington. Funny, fun and with happy Sam/Jamie fluff, too.
Monty Python November 8, 2010
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
The Ninth Doctor pops into a handy hardware store in search of a sonic screwdriver and gets more than he bargained for.
1899: The Doctor and Rose encounter the Phantom Raspberry Blower of Old London Town.
Hancock’s Half Hour
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…)
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
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 1786
Characters: Tenth Doctor, Martha Jones, 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.
And a drabble, mainly because it also features Zoe:
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.
Romana encounters Arnold Judas Rimmer. As always, she’s equal to the challenge.
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.
Sherlock Holmes June 7, 2009
Jack in his travels through time the slow way encounters Sherlock Holmes in the 1890s. Nice.
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.
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.)
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.
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.
