Author's Summary: Post-Battlefield. After the fight, after the supper, the Doctor and the Brigadier share Scotch and extended metaphors.
Characters/Pairings: Seventh Doctor, Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart
Recced because: I'm somewhat ambivalent about the Seventh Doctor. On the one hand, I more or less hate his on screen period. On the other, there are stories that just make me love reading about him, and this is one of them. Can't really say much more than is already said in the summary about what happens in the story - but I can definitely recommend wholeheartedly the story itself as a brilliant small character piece - the kind that is so required after such an episode as Battlefield. And, of course, the Brigadier, one of my favourite Who characters of all time. He makes a killer combination with every Doctor he interacts with, and this story is no exception.
