Doctor Who: No Company for Old Men, by Cryptile

FANDOM: Doctor Who
FIC LINK: No Company for Old Men
AUTHOR LINK: Cryptile
RATING/WARNING(S): G
WIP?/WORD COUNT: Complete | 7,300
MAIN CHARACTERS: Ninth Doctor, the Brigadier

FIC SUMMARY: "Who are you and what did you do with the Brigadier?"

RECCER'S NOTES: What did the Doctor get up to in those ten seconds at the end of "Rose"? Turns out he buggered off to see the Brigadier, and more or less refused to go away. Reasons to read this: 1. It's Nine and the Brig; 2. it's by Cryptile. Dialogue sharp as knives. The Brigadier's voice is delightful, his reaction to the intruder memorable, and the brittle wrongness of this new Doctor as the Brig watches him about the place sticks in my throat and burns.

Consider this an author rec, too, because every fic on Cryptile's profile is fantastic, with that balanced DW blend of drama and comedy and absolutely impeccable characterisation. One of the very best.
