I've been a Doctor Who fan all my life and I've enjoyed every regeneration, each one brings something new to the role. My first Doctor was Jon Pertwee, so I guess that gives away my age. Matt Smith makes a brilliant Doctor, I think he could be my favourite ever, but then I seem to say that about each new Doctor!

Having said that, I mostly write Torchwood, though I ignore CoE and MD as much as possible and have as yet not written anything to do with CoE. I still might, but only fix-its. I'm a Jack/Ianto fan as will become clear from my stories.

The adventures of a stray alien who finds a new home with the Torchwood team. This is set in a kind of AU where Children of Earth and Miracle Day don't happen.

The Torchwood Drabble Files by badly_knitted [Reviews - 12]
A collection of drabbles, mostly based on the weekly prompts at tw100. Mostly Jack/Ianto as that's what I write, but no doubt other Torchwood characters will pop in from time to time. All genres are possible, but expect mainly humour and fluff, because that's usually what comes out when I write. All are 100 words exactly in Word, but apparently not here!
