Whoop, I missed a day! Expect another this evening to make up for that.

Author's Summary: Biographies were the Doctor's favorite literary form. (Crossover with Lois McMaster Bujold's Vorkosiverse)
Characters/Pairings: Tenth Doctor, Cordelia Naismith Vorkosigan
Warnings: None

Recced because: It's an unlikely but unique way for the Doctor to meet a new companion: fitting into the blind spot of her biographer. This is a very well done crossover with the Vorkosigan saga. Cordelia's listlessness is plausible, and her dialogue quite in-character. There is a lovely attention to mood in this piece, both in the settings and the characterization. I'm looking forward to finding the time to read the other stories in this series.

Author's Summary:“The Doctor?” The Brigadier thought about that for a moment. “He’s the Queen’s sworn enemy as well?”
Characters/Pairings:Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, Sergeant Benton, UNIT
Warnings: None

Recced because: Another great fic arising from continuity niggles - this one being the obvious question of where exactly was Torchwood in the 70s when the Doctor was working for UNIT and fighting off aliens on a weekly basis while patently not being arrested? The result is a satisfyingly twisty, Spooks-style spy story that explains why. And has the Brigadier and UNIT getting the better of Torchwood's sinister men in grey. Read it and cheer.
