Recced because: This fic was written shortly after ‘Water of Mars’ aired, and it’s still my favourite coda to that episode (and it even fits in with canon, kinda). After all, who better than the Master to give the Doctor a few choice words after that particular imbroglio? It’s hilarious from start to finish, and yet has a deliciously dark undercurrent. Plus both characters are so perfectly portrayed that it truly does feel like a bit of canon left behind – the Doctor’s defensiveness, the Master’s glee... I can't count how often I've re-read it.
