Recced because: Shy computer genius Tosh never got her chance to meet the Tenth Doctor in canon, which is a shame, because I'd like to imagine it happened just like this: Tosh calculating when the TARDIS next needed to be refuelled, bantering with Ten on the way to get some cream cakes, and finagling a tour of the TARDIS -- and quite a bit more with Ten, but that's not something we were ever going to see in canon. Fortunately, we do here, in a story where the dialogue and characters feel true to form, and one with a very sexy pairing to boot.

Excerpt:

He'd brushed away most of her questions, insisted on stopping for a styrofoam cup of tea, and finally steered her back along two alleyways (nice shortcuts, she'd keep those in mind when she went back for more cream cakes, which she definitely would do) and they arrived back at the blue box, still sitting undisturbed between the back of a restaurant under construction and a brimming skip. The Doctor made a gallant half-bow gesture and ushered her into the box.

Tosh paused after coming over the threshold. "Oh. Oh! It's-"

"Go on," the Doctor smirked. "Everyone says it."

"It's an entirely different dimension on the inside!" Tosh blurted. She ran her hand along a strut support for the ceiling which looked like coral and felt almost alive. She shivered.

The Doctor coughed. "Yes, that's it exactly."
