Author's Summary:
Shakespeare didn't get to see the TARDIS the first time he met the Doctor.  But he's smart enough to know what it is when he comes across it later.

Characters/Pairings: Shakespeare, Madame de Pompadour, Fourth Doctor, Sarah Jane Smith

Recced because: If you’re like me and you like “The Shakespeare Code,” “The Girl in the Fireplace”, and the Fourth Doctor, have I got a story for you!  Shakespeare walks into a strange blue box (this isn’t a joke) expecting to see Ten and Martha again, but there is a different pair traveling in the TARDIS.  (See, there was no punch line.)  He is accidentally transported through space and time, where he meets someone else who knows his Doctor.  It is a charming story, with just a hint of disappointment that the Doctor isn’t the right one.
