Old Soldiers by AstroGirl

Story: Old Soldiers
Author: AstroGirl
Rating: All Ages
Author's summary: What the Brigadier and other UNIT folks were doing during some of the events of the new series.
Characters: Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, Doris Lethbridge-Stewart, John Benton, UNIT
Warnings: none
Word Count: ~ 4,000 words

Recced because: A brilliant take on some new skool via old skool UNIT characters; this story follows the Brigadier, dear old Brigadier who never gives up, never stops wanting to help (and be a part of things, something he finds shameful but is so terribly human), and the major events of World War Three, The Christmas Invasion, and Army of Ghosts/Doomsday. It's plotty and slips perfectly into the canon (I'd like to believe this happened!) and has great cameos from Doris and in particular Benton, who is written exactly right ("I've heard you say it yourself often enough, and, if I may say so, it would be a crushing disillusionment if I had to start doubting your word now" he says about the Brig, which is so perfect). A sensational story, and the last line is a killer.
