Rec: Still Waiting

Story: Still Waiting
Author: Sheila Adamson
Rating: All Ages
Author's summary: The Brigadier and Jo practise life without the Doctor.
Characters: Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, Jo Grant, Sergeant Benton
Warnings: None

Recced because: There's not nearly enough UNIT fic out there to satisfy me, but this lovely piece does a great job of filling in some of the gaps. Learning to live without the Doctor is something particularly relevant given how the new series has portrayed departures, and here we get at that carefully and gently, through an investigation of a haunted house and an examination of what it's like to be the ones left behind, doing the paperwork, picking up the pieces, and waiting and wondering. All the voices are dead-on, especially the Brigadier's, and it's subtle and touching and funny, without ever being sentimental or cloying.
