Author's Summary: On the usefulness of knitting in an emergency.
Characters/Pairings: Sixth Doctor, Evelyn Smythe
Recced because: Six and Evelyn are locked in a cell and have a discussion about escaping and knitting (not necessarily in that order). Evelyn is a character from the Big Finish audios, and I have a confession to make: I have never heard a single one of those audios. But not only do I love this fic, it has made me want to go buy BF audios so I can get more Evelyn, and my only worry is whether the Big Finish people can possibly write as wonderfully as vvj5 does in this story. If you're like me and don't know the audios, don't worry, because no background knowledge is needed (and you don't need to know Six, either -- just the Doctor). The dialogue shines, and while I can't vouch for Evelyn's characterization, Six is captured perfectly.
The Doctor paused and folded his arms. “Evelyn, do you not think for one tiny moment that us escaping this cell with our lives is just a smidgeon more important than the progress of your fluffy jumper?”
“I knew I shouldn’t have left the pattern back on the ship,” she reflected. “I should know by now we’re always getting locked up somewhere or other.”
