Recced because: I love Harry Sullivan and I love this story. The first time I read it I actually cried with laughter, and no matter how many times I re-read, I still grin from ear to ear. A bizarre bonding moment for the Fourth Doctor and Harry that is wonderfully in character and full of so much charm. I can't imagine how anyone could read this story and not smile.

“What is it, Doctor?”

The Doctor flung his arms about wildly for a moment before ruffling his hands through his hair to get himself under control. “This!”


“This, Harry, this!” The Doctor cried, with one of his most frustrated, patronizing looks. “It’s never been this curly before!”

Harry had to hold back a chuckle when he realized what the Doctor meant. “Your hair? You can’t manage… your hair?”

“Help me, Harry!” The Doctor beseeched, still waving his hands as though the universe itself were on fire. “You must know how to keep it in check; yours is just as chaotic!”
