Rec: A Trump Lead by Sheila Adamson & The Sky Was Good For Flying by Doyle

I'm rounding off my Big Finish week with a rec for Mel and one for Peri. Big Finish may not have created them, but they've done some rather wonderful things with them.

Story:A Trump Lead
Author: Sheila Adamson
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 2787
Author's Summary: The Doctor treats Mel to a lesson in probabilities and card play.
Characters/Pairings: Mel, Seventh Doctor
Warnings: please None

Recced because: This shows the way in which Mel and Seven interacted together wonderfully. The story starts off with Mel angry at the Doctor, for a number of things, but mainly because people died and he wouldn't go back and save them. Through explaining the game of Bridge to her Seven explains about changing the past. It's a beautifully written allegory.



Story: The Sky Was Good For Flying
Author: Doyle
Rating: All ages
Word Count: 1883
Author's Summary: The Doctor trespasses on a royal garden and meets someone he didn’t expect to ever see again.
Characters/Pairings: Peri, Sixth Doctor
Warnings: Just for how Peri left the Doctor

Recced because: TV canon leaves what happens to Peri up in the air. There are two conflicting stories, both from unreliable sources. Doyle makes a future for Peri that is wonderful and exactly what she deserves. Also the Sixth Doctor gets resolution in the matter as well.
