A benevolent abduction

Story: A benevolent abduction
Author: Lydia hunter
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 4067
Author's Summary: Ian tells his children about how their mother saved him and Susan from a madwoman with the very best of intentions.
Characters/Pairings: Barbara Wright, Ian Chesterton, Susan Foreman, First Doctor
Warnings: none

Recced because: I needed something lighter after yesterday’s dark rec, and then I found this in my bookmarks. A whole alien culture is created within the space of a few thousand words, as well as a lovely domestic scene. The story is a heart-warming look at life for Ian and Barbara after their days in the TARDIS. It is also a great mini first doctor tale.

Ian and Barbara are often overlooked by younger fans like myself who started watching in or after 2005, and that is a great shame. The First TARDIS team might be nearly fifty by now, but that doesn’t make them any less brilliant. All four of them are perfectly characterised in this story, especially Ian is his wonderful self. The reactions of the children to their parents’ story are fun and utterly believable.
