Author's Summary: All that stargazing Wilf did and he never got to travel among them until one day he did.
Characters/Pairings: Wilfred Mott, Tenth Doctor
Recced because: Everybody loves Donna’s grandfather Wilf, and the Doctor proves he is no exception when he gives Wilf a trip in the TARDIS. This is a very moving story, full of beautiful descriptions. There’s a deftly used classic Who reference. The Doctor gets to show off his compassionate side and while Wilf proves that genuine wonder at seeing the universe isn’t confined to the standard pretty young female companions. “A Gentleman of the Universe” is a charming, heartfelt tribute to a charming, heart-filled character. Tissue warning, but not the sort that leaves you feeling crummy.
