Recced because:
This is a crossover that just had to happen, because the Doctor and Sherlock have so much in common.  Dealing with arrogant geniuses provides a number of parallels between John Watson, Jack and Rose too.  The story manages to blend the two universes together in a way that honors both, and stays true to the characters.  I don’t want to spoil anything, so I’ll just say that there are fun twists and turns throughout, and an absolutely delightful ending.
