Wow...I liked this version of John willfully ignoring the strangeness around him. It would have been even funnier if rather than giving in he stuck with the "no" and included a "if you want to talk to me so much you can do it over the phone or come to me" and then proceeded to prove that just cause he had a limp didn't mean he couldn't kick some hired goon's ass. I mean, come one, it's just an extra long baton. :)

Brilliant story:) It really does sound like a scene in a Dr. Who episode. The scene with Mycroft was one of my favorites from A Study in Pink - though I have to admit I went back and forth a few times trying to decide whether he was Mycroft or Moriarty :)

I really liked this, though there were a few things I thought were extraneous or a little out of place.
Mostly what seemed odd to me was that Mycroft would think it was necessary to go through the whole camera routine after he'd essentially boxed John in with three black cars. I think all the ringing phones and the cars and the big dude in the penguin suit would have gotten the point across just fine.
Also, John's questions once he gets in the car also seemed out of place. I understand that you wanted to stick to the script, but you get John all pissed off, and the wording of the questions is too mild to match his mood and the experience he's just been through. I feel like he should've asked 'Anthea' "Where are you taking me?" rather than "So, where are we going then?" And I doubt he'd have bothered asking her name if he was that keyed up.
One last thing: "John contemplated the car, sanity warring with curiosity." I feel like John would've been experiencing more of a fight-or-flight response in this situation. I know I would, but especially since you describe how he doesn't even feel safe in London anymore made me think that he'd be more distressed than simply curious. That he was just curious kind of implies that he could just as easily have walked away from the situation, which he very much could not.
Golly, that sounded critical. But I really do like it, and it makes me wonder what the rest of the series would have been like if John were more like this than being such a pushover all the time. Maybe he wouldn't have gotten himself kidnapped in each episode...

Very descriptive and well written. Well paced, and subtly humourous. I thought when officers were issued their weapons, it was theirs to do what they pleased with? I thought they were lawfully allowed to carry firearms with them if they choose? I don't know.
Loved it! In some ways i prefer it to what they actually did. Xxxx

Haha, I did always wonder what John would have done.

Love it! I'd wondered, too... Brilliantly done, but perhaps a little ooc for John? I don't think he'd refuse to get in the car, I think the curiosity would be too much for him.
Just a thought :) xx
