Story: Chase Your Demons Away
 All Ages
Word Count:
Author's Summary:
 Three weeks after Norway, the Doctor bonds with Tony Tyler over a shared affliction -- bad dreams. Tony accepts the man in the hallway as the same flesh-and-blood action hero from all Rose’s stories, full stop. Tony doesn’t find the human warmth of the Doctor’s skin strange or send him pointed looks if he says something more Donna than Doctor. Tony probably doesn’t dream about beaches and pinstripes, either.
Characters/Pairings: 10.5/Rose, Tony Tyler
Warnings: None.

Recced because: It's a bit of a problem, to get Handy quite right - the enough amount of human and Donna while still maintaining a person who's essentially the Doctor is a difficult task. thirty2flavors does a wonderful job of it here, telling what is essentially a human story, but still makes a perfect fit for the Doctor.
