Story: Doctor Who And The Rambaldi Enigma
Author: Rheanna
Rating: All Ages
Word Count: 19651
Author's Summary: Retrieving a Rambaldi artefact from the Vatican's vaults is all in a day's work for Sydney Bristow -- until she finds herself transported to fifteenth century Rome. All Sydney wants is to get home, but she's not the only time traveller with an interest in the mysterious Signor Rambaldi...
Characters/Pairings: Third Doctor, Delgado!Master, Sydney Bristow
Warnings: None given.

Recced because: Mostly recced because good crossovers are hard to come by and this one is excellent. The first time I read it I only knew the Alias half, not having seen any Classic Who yet so I know it stands up if you only have a passing familiarity with Doctor Who.

Now that I AM familiar with the Third Doctor, I'm sitting here laughing out loud at how well Rheanna's written him and his relationship with the Master. This fic could have been an episode of the show, it's brilliant. As far as I'm concerned, it IS canon for both shows.

I'm re-reading it now and so far the author's doing a fantastic job of making the Alias characters accessible if you're not familiar with that show.

Mostly recced because how can you resist a fic with this great a sense of humour?

On the Master:

"He really goes in for moustache-twirling villainy, doesn't he?"

"He's always been overly melodramatic," the Doctor sighed, flipping his opera cape over his shoulder.
