Rating:all ages

Author's Summary: Alexander Saxon (six years old) hated Boxing Day almost as much as he loved Christmas. How does Alex cope with his human family? And how does the Doctor deal with raising the child of his archnemesis?
Characters/Pairings: Lucy Saxon, Other Character(s), The Doctor (10th), The Master (Simm)
Warnings:. none

Recced because: A little something to get in the holiday spirit. This is one of a series of stories in a AU where the Master and Lucy had a son during The Year That Never Was. In this story, Alexander is forced to deal with his extended (human) family on Boxing Day. It does a good job of showing a child’s viewpoint, and is a microcosm of the central tension in this series – how Alex reconciles the fact he loves both his father the Master, and the Doctor, who is helping raise him, and how needs to find his own path between the two of them.
