Recced because: This is hands down one of the funniest fics I've ever read. Missing Heathrow, again, the Doctor lands the TARDIS inside a cinema screening Godzilla. He proceeds to explain the history of the franchise desperately trying to ignore his companions bickering, sniping and generally just trying to make themselves heard.

My favourite part is the author describing the voices of the TARDIS crew, anyone who describes Adric's voice as the kind of voice one invariably heard at art openings and political gatherings; a sort of collected, slightly smug type of diction that you wanted to hit repeatedly with a brick deserves serious fandom points in my book.

And I don't want to ruin the twist at the end but it's excellent.
