Title: "A Really Nice Shade of Blue", part 1/10(ish)
A Top Gear/Doctor Who(/Torchwood/Sarah Jane Adventures/Big Finish) crossover
by [personal profile] melannen
Characters: Bessie, Oliver, a somewhat modified Nissan Figaro, a not-exactly-factory-model Fiat Panda, a Type 9 TARDIS in the guise of a police box, TGD and K9. (Also a bunch of anthropoid apes, but let's face it, no-one here watches Top Gear for the monkeys.) Gen, w/canon ships & subtext.
Story summary: "Tonight on Top Gear: James May fixes something that has been broken for a very long time, Richard Hammond is troubled in love, and I get abducted by an alien. Oh, and we also lark about on the Top Gear test track a lot and put a star who you've probably never heard of, but James really wants to go on a date with, in our reasonably priced car."
Disclaimer: For all I know, the Stig actually is an alien.
Notes: This is set, for Top Gear people, during the filming of an alternate S14; for Torchwood people, the autumn after Children of Earth; and for the Doctor, sometime between Journey's End and The End of Time. Also, I am not good with getting WIPs finished expeditiously, so it might be awhile till Chapter 2. But [community profile] crossovers wants us to post WIPS. :D Originally posted at [community profile] topgearslash.

Your special multimedia bonus enrichment for this chapter: Max Warp, the Big Finish thinly veiled audio crossover in which it is revealed that the Doctor thinks a Top Gear taping is the sort of place to bring a girl for a special night out. I think we all agree that he is correct. (Warning, this audio contains graphic depiction of Richard's crash, but spoiler:he isn't really dead.)

'So, as they are ever-responsive to the voice of the British populace, our producers have declared that in this episode, we are not going to spend any taxpayers' money on automobiles. This week, in the spirit of the great British virtues of thrift and making do, they've given us the key to an old BBC storage facility, which they tell us contains a variety of old prop vehicles used on cancelled shows. So instead of recklessly destroying a lot of expensive modern automobiles, we're going to be responsible by reusing and recycling, by which I mean recklessly destroy some iconic symbols that were beloved by an entire generation.' )
