"Crossed Broadswords" (Highlander/Doctor Who)

Reviewed by Kathryn A on 18th March 2000 (2)

This one really won't make sense unless you've seen the Doctor Who episode "Battlefield", and are familiar enough with the Highlander universe to know about Watchers and Hunters. But it's a keen little vigniette. I like Brigadier Bambera.

"Prolonged Insults" (Highlander/HHGG)

Reviewed by Kathryn A on 21st March 2000

I actually have read a story before, where Methos was insulted by Wowbagger the Infinitely Prolonged - but it's too good an idea not to enjoy again. And this was, indeed, enjoyably amusing.

"The Youngest and the Oldest" (Highlander/The Dark Is Rising)

Reviewed by Kathryn A on 18th March 2000 (1)

A poignant little vigniette, where the youngest Old One meets the Oldest Immortal. Probably wouldn't make much sense unless one had read Susan Cooper's "The Dark Is Rising" series, a classic of children's fantasy.
