Author's Summary: A Blake's 7 crossover featuring the Fourth Doctor and Vila.
Characters/Pairings: Fourth Doctor, Vila Restal
Warnings: None.

Recced because: AstroGirl writes some wonderful crossovers, and having just discovered Doctor Who's long lost TV sibling in Blake’s 7, I was thrilled to stumble over this. You don’t need to know anything and there’s no spoilers for either series. Vila encounters the TARDIS in this sweet, humorous piece that is perhaps as much an exploration of the TARDIS through new eyes as anything else.

AstroGirl has Vila’s jokey POV down perfectly, ditto Four’s chaotic approach to life – and you don’t need to know B7 to get filmed-in-a-quarry jokes. There’s only one downside – I wish there were more adventures for this AU TARDIS team.
