Experiment by orlieeee [Reviews - 16]
"The Doctor opened his eyes and gritted his teeth almost savagely as he saw the cold plastic and metal identification tag that they had virtually pierced into his left forearm. The tag was a harsh white and there was a barcode over the top rim, while the bottom corner read- SPECIES: TIME LORD." The Doctor thinks he has found a way to bring back his people without creating a paradox machine, or ripping a hole in the fabric of time and space. However, things go horribly wrong.

L'Sangri by Asa Meda [Reviews - 11]
This begins at the end of the First series of Torchwood (AU from that point on). Jack was still killed by Abaddon and lays in state for a few days. But what are the consequences? What's wrong with Ianto? How can the Doctor help? And what's Methos got to do with it?

Matryoshka by Pitry [Reviews - 23]
Being out of time and space isn't just upsetting – it's also very, very boring. Especially when the Doctor has to live it time and again, and the only person to help him out of the mess is himself. And himself. And himself, himself, himself, himself and himself. Oh, and himself and himself.

More Than A Name by Emery Board [Reviews - 17]
There have been secrets since the dawn of time. This is not one of them. There are secrets that would shatter the foundations of the universe. This is not that sort of secret. Perhaps the reason the Doctor refuses a name is simply because he has hundreds, and still none of them describe him properly.

Non Linear by winterhill [Reviews - 30]
A TW/DW/Dead Like Me cross-over. I am only using the DLM universe - no DLM characters appear. Ianto's job after he dies is to collect the souls of the dead, but he's surprised to learn that he's got a very particular specialization. A fluffy Janto-together-forever fic with bonus Doctor(s). Multiple character deaths with the promise of an afterlife.
