Holes by sensiblecat [Reviews - 8]
Shameless crackfic, dedicated to all the people who think the end of Torchwood S2 would have been more fun with the Doctor in it. In his “Who’s Who” entry it probably listed his interests as “Sticking his nose into other people’s business” “Leading young ladies up dark alleys with a cool motor and non-specific intentions” “Collecting Hatboxes” and “Saving People.”
