Author's Summary: It's easy for the Doctor to drop out of sight. It's somewhat harder for him to come back. Short, angsty oneshot set after The Five Doctors.
Characters/Pairings: Mike Yates, Sarah Jane Smith, The Doctor (5th)
Warnings: Spoilers for 'The Five Doctors'.
As my second rec for the day, here's a barely under 1k story set after 'The Five Doctors'. And it just about breaks my heart in a bittersweet way, because it's the Fifth Doctor after all that mess with Omega and he's come to see Sarah Jane; and after the way they originally parted in his previous regeneration, he's bound to be a little nervous after all that time.
The writing of the Doctor and the wonderful details and description (and Yates!) make this a welcome post-episode fic to an often dismissed adventure.
