Author's Summary: Sarah Jane has an unexpected visitor.
Characters/Pairings: Clyde Langer, K-9, Mr. Smith, Other Character(s), Sarah Jane Smith
Warnings: None

Recced because: I'm ending my recs with yet another new author, and an entertaining Sara Jane Adventures story that refers back to one of the most interesting canon characters we never quite met in Doctor Who (yes, I am being a little cryptic) and does so with immense style. Some familiar characters do appear, and it's fun and fast-paced throughout.

Author's Summary: Clyde and Rani end up at Coal Hill School on a foggy November day, and the course of history is unravelling around them.
Characters/Pairings: Barbara Wright, Ian Chesterton, Susan Foreman, Clyde Langer, Mr. Smith, Rani Chandra, Sarah Jane Smith
Warnings: None

Recced because: I like stories which mix characters from wildly different eras of the Doctor's story. This one plunges Clyde and Rani, from The Sarah Jane Adventures, into the very first Doctor Who story, with potentially catastrophic timey-wimey results.

Author's Summary: Bloomin' Lovely are now making deliveries all the way to the Horse-Head Nebula. Regular fees apply.
Characters/Pairings: Gita Chandra, Sarah Jane Smith, Mr. Smith, Eleven
Warnings: None

Recced because: It isn't hard to believe that Gita Chandra, always hatching another ambitious plan to promote Bloomin' Lovely, would work out a way to extend her delivery range far, far outside London. Roses are easy, and even a request for a baobab straight out of The Little Prince is no trouble for the indomitable Gita, who isn't going to let anything as minor as Earth's existing flora catalog – much less Sarah Jane's insistence that Earth isn't ready for alien contact – limit her ability to serve her customers.

Author's Summary: The Doctor believes Luke is his son and that Sarah lied to him at Deffrey Vale. The truth is more complex than anyone suspected.
Characters/Pairings: Sarah Jane Smith, the Tenth Doctor, the Eighth Doctor, Clyde Langer, Rani Chandra, Luke Smith, Mr. Smith; Doctor/Sarah Jane
Warnings: None given.

Recced because: I've seen a lot of "Luke is really the Doctor and Sarah Jane's biological child!" stories, but this is the first one I've seen to convincingly pull it off. I was thrilled, because I was always really taken with the idea, but couldn't think of any way to make it work with canon. This fic takes that intriguing premise and runs with it, weaving a very clever story that uses all the tools canon gave it.

Most of my recs this week will be crossovers; this one isn't, not exactly, although it includes elements of two shows from the Doctor Who universe:

Story: Cause and Effect

Author's Summary: Luke isn’t quite sure of how to handle his rescue. How did the Doctor know when to save him?
Characters/Pairings: Clyde Langer, Luke Smith, Mr. Smith, Other Character(s), Rani Chandra, Sarah Jane Smith
Warnings: None

Spoilers for The End of Time and episodes of The Sarah-Jane Adventures

Recced because: Most people would just be grateful if the Doctor saved their lives. Luke worries about it, in a wonderful display of existential angst and dawning apprehension. The story is simply a beautiful character study in which Luke gradually realises that his rescue could be a very bad thing, compares his rescue to the many deaths that the Doctor didn't prevent, and tries to work out how he can still be alive without damaging the timeline.
