Recced because: It’s a fic that ties up loose ends with style (and bow ties) and also, in many ways, explores the fall-out of the Doctor’s adventures for those left with the more prosaic clearing up to do. Eleven returns to ask Martha if UNIT have noticed a crack anywhere. Of course, he manages to turn up early, and the result is a funny, sweet fic – and a convincingly creepy use of S5 to tie up continuity from The End of Time. The characterisation is great (even Amy’s short cameo is very recognisable) and I always love a fanfic that can take some of our show’s innate craziness and make something well worth reading out of it. This is one of those stories.
