Author's Summary: The Doctor teaches Ace why he can and can’t interfere with history.
Characters/Pairings: Seventh Doctor, Ace
Warnings: Mild swearing, otherwise fine.
Recced because: Mandragora uses the Seventh Doctor to tell the logical question – if you had a time machine, wouldn’t it be tempting to use it to change history for the better? Or could that attempt make things much worse? And are there parts of history which can be altered over others. In light of the recent Let’s Kill Hitler episode this story manages to tackle that a little more expertly together without treading too much on what’s been said on the subject of changing the past. Seven and Ace are firmly in character and this makes for a great character piece between this much beloved TARDIS crew of mine.
