Author's Summary: Gerald and Harriet of the Torchwood Institute run an errand one rainy London night, scarcely realising the danger they are walking into. Crossover with Upstairs Downstairs.
Characters/Pairings: Harriet Derbyshire, Gerald Carter
Warnings: None.

Recced because: It’s a galloping good read, that’s why. If you don’t know the crossover fandom (Upstairs Downstairs – the 1970s one, that is) or Gerald and Harriet (who are characters from Edwardian Torchwood), fear not – neither do I and I still loved it. It makes use of a bit of cross-casting (one of the UD characters was played by one Anthony Ainley) and dives into adventure, fun and some romance between our old-fashioned heroes. What’s not to enjoy?
