Face Value, by Gary Merchant

(U.N.I.T. double-feature!)

Story: Face Value
Author: Gary Merchant
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 2294
Author's Summary: Corporal Bell learns about UNIT's scientific advisor
Characters/Pairings: Corporal Bell, the Brigadier, the Doctor, Liz, Benton
Warnings: none

Recced because: I'm a sucker for a good story from the POV of a one-off or minor character, and Corporal Bell, who often seems to be the U.N.I.T. equivalent of an office manager, is a particularly golden opportunity. And there's something deeply satisfying about seeing Three run up against the universal truth that you just don't mess with the office manager.

Just a lovely little sketch of Corporal Bell learning about the broader universe, on her own initiative… via the medium of the olive-and-khaki, paper-fueled base she keeps running.
