Summary: A portal between dimensions opens and yet another woman materializes inside the TARDIS. (Late season three Tenth Doctor, crossover with BtVS.)

I didn't enjoy this as much as this author's other Buffy/Doctor Who crossover, but I have to disclaim that since I myself have written a story with a very similar premise, I could be considered biased, and that my differing interpretation of the characters is why I feel that some parts of this were out of character. However, there were other places where I simply felt frustrated because we didn't get to see the character development since it happened in the background. But there were also many good bits: clever, amusing, profound, snarky, bittersweet. So give it a go, you may like it more than I did.
