Author's Summary: A TARDIS inside a TARDIS and an unexpected meeting.
Characters/Pairings: Romana I, The Doctor (11th)
Warnings: General, Standalone, Vignette
Recced because: Okay, I have to admit - I have a weakness of Classic meets New. And ahhh, Romana I! Who doesn't love her? Smart, beautiful, reserved, intuitive and with that well hidden, sly humor that made the character so memorable! And Romana I meeting Eleven - close to, yet so very far from the Fourth 'her Doctor'. This was just one of those fictions that needed to happen. And it was written by a brilliant author that I look forward to seeing more from. Once again, gorgeous attention to detail, every nuance and line holding more than one meaning and everything just wonderfully, nostalgically gorgeous. A must read for all - Classic and New Who buffs alike (and a definite must for the ones that love both)!
When Romana opens the door, she finds herself staring at a room she's never seen before.
It's a TARDIS console room. Romana can tell that at a glance even though it's configured more grandly than any she's set eyes on. There are glass floors and staircases and a time rotor apparently made of blown glass. The man in charge — loosely speaking — is gangly and gauche in his ridiculous outfit of too-short trousers, tailored tweed jacket and blue bow tie, and he's darting around the control panel like someone demented. It's perfectly obvious who he is.
