All these things that we've done (Doctor Who)

Characters: Third Doctor, Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, Liz Shaw

Summary: The one where the Brigadier and Liz Shaw travel as companions to the Third Doctor.

This was delightful. All three characters were spot-on (including the Doctor's body language). This is the way that it would have been if this had happened in canon. I also liked how there was character development, the way that, being thrown together made the Brigadier and Liz Shaw come to a better understanding and liking of each other.

The Care and Feeding of Tiny Humans (and slightly larger Time Lords) (Doctor Who)

Summary:The one where the Doctor comes back for little Amelia Pond.

What it says on the tin. The Doctor isn't used to looking after people who are so small. Amelia would look after herself, only it's hard to reach the TARDIS console when you're so short. This gives us snippets of their adventures, and it is delightful. You will smile.

Five Times Jenny Met One of the Doctors Companions (Doctor Who)

Tags: Short Story

Summary:Jenny saves some civilisations, does a lot of running and meets some of the Doctor's old friends.

This captures the enthusiastic naivete of Jenny, and the other characters are in character too, painted with quick strokes. It would never happen, but it's fun thinking about.

Characters: Donna Noble

Summary: I'm a human being with the brain of a Time Lord and he's a Time Lord trapped in a human body. Which isn't nearly as kinky as it sounds.

I loved this. Yes, yet another post Journey's End Donna fixit story, but you know I'm reading a lot of them right now. Anyway, this was goofy and fun, and actually made sense too.

The Sacred Art of Stealing (Doctor Who)

Summary:A very serious and in no way silly story in which the Doctor attempts to pinch Sarah Jane's companions.

In one word: delightful. Ten is very bouncy, Sarah is very wise.

Summary:"Do you ever get the feeling that we're the best two?"

Nice little gem. It isn't making fun of them when they're really like that. (grin)

This Sporting Life (Doctor Who)

Summary:Sarah Jane thought that she had quite enough troubles already, what with the bright purple man-eating aliens living in the Thames. Then the Doctor turned up with a new face, an inexplicably northern accent and a sex crazed American in tow.

Straightforward mayhem and running and escaping and cuppas; banter and snark. It was really fun seeing Sarah Jane having an adventure with Nine and Jack; this really got Sarah's PoV, her mix of exasperation and exhilaration, Nine's infectious and goofy smile, and of course Jack being Jack.

Summary:The door opened and out came a sixteen foot scarf. The scarf was wearing a curly haired man.

Non-linear time travel: check Jack flirting with everyone he meets: check Sarah-Jane Smith in character: check Harry Sullivan being embarrassed: check Jelly babies: check Good punchline: check
