Recced because: I'm a sucker for crossovers and a big Buffyverse fan, and this is the latest instalment of the best and most canon-compliant Who / Buffyverse series, in which Jack is secretly The Immortal, a character discussed in Angel but never actually seen on screen. It's more serious than the first story, but still has time for romance and humour. I'm hoping that there will eventually be more in this series, but for now the story is complete.

The next second Gwen, Tosh and Owen sprang out from nowhere, guns pointing straight at Spike.

Then he turned to his team, slowly lowering his hand.
“Weapons down! It’s not him!”
Owen shot him a look that was quite frankly insultingly patronising, gun still trained straight on Spike’s chest.
“Oh please Jack, pull the other one. Come on, check out those cheekbones!”
“You read my log?”
There was a sudden discomfort in the ranks. Tosh cleared her throat.
“It... was forwarded to everyone after the... incident.”
“Oh,” he said slowly, reminding himself that a jealous Ianto should never be underestimated.
“Would you please explain what’s happening?” Buffy asked, pointedly, and he sighed.
“OK. He-” Jack pointed to Spike, “-happens to be a complete doppelganger of my ex-partner. Said ex-partner dropped by recently and caused some trouble. So, my team are a little... wary.”
He frowned at them. “I said weapons down!”
“What do you mean ‘ex-partner’?” Spike asked guardedly, and Jack grinned wickedly.
“Whatever you’re imagining in the darkest corners of your mind - turn it up to eleven.”
