A Teaspoon And An Open Mind: A Doctor Who Fan Fiction Archive
Second Chances by Gary Merchant [Reviews - 3] Printer Chapter or Story


It was late in the evening, and a UNIT radar technician was coming to the end of his shift. He yawned and stretched in his chair, dreaming of a warm bed, when a blip appeared on the screen. Immediately alert, he double checked, then put a call through to the main office.

Within minutes, Mike Yates had been informed. A first contact situation was confirmed. Except that it wasn’t a UFO in the strictest sense.


When Ben Jackson joined Yates at the radar station, he had an idea of what was coming. And when he saw the picture on the vid-screen, his thoughts drifted back to the Doctor, Polly, and the coldest place in the world.

As far as Ben was concerned, it had happened over twenty years ago. It was about to happen all over again, but this time he knew what the outcome would be.

Doctor Who and its accoutrements are the property of the BBC, and we obviously don't have any right to them. Any and all crossover characters belong to their respective creators. Alas no one makes any money from this site, and it's all done out of love for a cheap-looking sci-fi show. All fics are property of their individual authors. Archival at this site should not be taken to constitute automatic archive rights elsewhere, and authors should be contacted individually to arrange further archiving.
