Title: Our Days Begin With Trouble
Author: Mara
Rating: All ages

I’ve been avoiding Sherlock fic (because of how I haven’t watched it yet, and want to), but stumbled over this despite myself, which is a lovely, fun crossover ficlet anyway.

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.
