Story: The Silent Land
Author: AJK
Rating: all ages
Word Count: 33,156
Characters/pairings: First Doctor, Barbara Wright, Ian Chesterton
Author's summary: A lost tomb, an archaeological dig, a near death experience and reality starts to slip.
Warnings: none

Recced because: This is an exciting and suspenseful adventure story that kept me completely absorbed through all five chapters. Set in the interval between Susan's departure and Vicki's arrival, it features the First Doctor, Ian, and Barbara joining an archaeological dig on Earth in the year 1999, and encountering some seemingly supernatural phenomena from Ancient Egypt. Featuring a fascinating dose of Egyptian mythology, using Classic Who's penchant for characters who are physical doubles of our regulars to good effect, and including a good deal of playful and charming banter from our TARDIS team (and a good amount of Barbara/Ian shippiness), this is an entertaining and satisfying story that I'm glad to have stumbled across.
