rec: Time Waits for No Godot by BetaCadabra

Story: Time Waits for No Godot
Author: BetaCadabra
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1882
Author's Summary: What the world never realised it so desperately wanted: a Doctor Who/Samuel Beckett crossover story. Familiarity with 'Waiting for Godot' not necessarily required.
Characters/Pairings: Second Doctor, crossover characters.
Warnings: None.

Recced because: Where to even begin? A work of literature is amusingly turned around by the arrival of the Doctor (who doesn’t have much truck with a permanent state of waiting, after all), and then what ought to be the crackiest of crossovers turns out to be unexpectedly serious in all the right ways. And I can echo the author’s assurance that no knowledge of Waiting For Godot is needed, because I’ve never actually read or seen it myself, and I loved this enough to rec it here. Plus, I think they’re right about the other thing, too – the world really did need this crossover, even if it didn’t know it.
