Recced because: This is a beautiful little vignette about the true nature of Jack's immortality. It's sweet and hot and timey-wimey and philosophical, and it proves that no one can show up the true nature of the Doctor's sins quite like his previous selves can. Even if you haven't watched Classic Who or aren't familiar with the fifth Doctor, you can read this one--you'll understand more than enough to "get it."
