Author: Lyricwritesprose
Author summary: While trying to cope with grief and survivor guilt, Wilf meets the one person he never wanted to see.
Characters: Eleventh Doctor, Wilfred Mott
Warnings: None

Recced because:
I always enjoy fics where Wilf and the Doctor meet up again. Wilf is one of my favourite companions anyway, and because they share a secret, and they're both old men by their species' standards, it seems that they'd really have a lot to talk about. This is a well-written story in which Wilf encounters Eleven and gets an opportunity he really should have had in the series. It does a good job showing the differences between Ten and Eleven, and showing Wilf's reaction to a new Doctor. It also contains this amusing and pithy description of Eleven:  Extra chin, hold the eyebrows.
