Author's Summary: While trapped in 1969, the Doctor finds employment at the local hospital and finds much more than he bargained for.
Characters/Pairings: Ten, Martha Jones, Ian Chesterton, Barbara Wright
Warnings: None

Recced because: I always love the stories where the Doctor meets up with old companions when he and Martha are trapped back in 1969. This one does it within the context of a traditional Doctor Who mystery story, with aliens, murder, running down corridors, and a good set of original characters to balance it out and give it the feel of an actual episode of the show. It's nice to see Barbara (Wright) Chesterton still true to form, observant and sharp and quite able to take initiative once her suspicions are raised. And the interactions between Ten and Martha, as they transition from dealing with the mundane things like flats and jobs and money, over to conspiracy, alien invasion and general otherworldly peril, are really fun.
