Author's Summary: The Doctor finds out about Evelyn's heart condition... the hard way.
Characters/Pairings: Evelyn Smythe, Sixth Doctor
Warnings: None

Recced because: More Evelyn fic is always a good thing, and this is a particularly good example, showing the relationship between Our Heroes in a nutshell. Six is at his best here, bombastic, rude, and loud while still capable of loving his companions just as deeply as anyone else, and Evelyn herself deals with him with her sort of exasperated affection that somehow turns him adorable. The story itself, dealing as it does with Evelyn's never-specified heart condition, is elegantly researched and written, with excellent use of tension and buildup. Highly recommended.
