Recced because: Torchwood/ Doctor Who crossovers can be either extremely cool or extremely terrible. This one's definitely on the "extremely cool" side - a double mystery surrounding the Doctor and weevils (what else?) is at the centre of this lovely adventure. The best thing about this possible crossover is very apparent in this story - the tension between the Torchwood team (and their way of doing things) and the Doctor, who finds himself working with them in order to solve the mysteries: Torchwood are trigger-happy (as usual), the Doctor is condescending (as usual), and Jack is, well, Jack. This could have been treasured for the simple fact I find a lot of Doctor/Torchwood stories to be terrible, but it's actually a good, interesting, funny story, that leaves a fuzzy feeling once it's finished.
