That was really good - great to see Benny in something again. You had her spot on. (Loved the bit about her early retirement & the emails...)

That was well worth the wait! I have to confess, though, that I almost stopped reading when poor Wolsey passed away; that hit a little too close to home for me. But then you slipped in and made things happy again--that much more so for the poignancy you'd created. Your characterizations of Benny and the Doctor were charmingly perfect, too. As always, lovely work!

Oh, this was lovely. True to form for Benny, too. I can almost hear her "voice" from the novels and the audios throughout this fic. And Ten was spot on. Then, having Seven stop in for a Christmas miracle was absolutely lovely. Left me with a smile on my face, especially given the ending.

Thank you so much for sharing!

I've never read any of the Benny novels, apart from the last couple of chapters of the one with Eight, but I do have a fair idea of her character. And this is just lovely :) Sad and regretful and tainted with loss, as much for her Doctor as for Wolsey, and you also manage to convey the Tenth Doctor's sense of loss also - in some ways, you never can go back.

But then that final section, where Benny's Doctor came through for her and gives her a Christmas miracle after all, is gorgeous :) Really nice work!

Author's Response: Cheers for that, hope you have a safe and restive holiday!
