And you're assuming that if the Doctor met Brian, he'd expect him to hit him. If so, you're saying so, not Doctor Who.

I mean, were they actually married? Alex Kingston said that was uncertain.

This was absolutely amazing. That's all I can say- just amazing! Combining 3 of my favorite series- and Harold as Smiley's son- Perfection! Now its all I can imagine!

Oh, I forgot to mention, I love your humour (especially about Finch's knowing all about Cassidy and his glad thought that he wasn't 'a creepy stalker') and the running jokes in the story, especially about Reese picking on Finch about his flock of adoring women (not that I would *ever* be added to that list).

This is beautiful beyond words. You have this wonderful way of creating tension (like making us wonder about the stewardess) but then the surpise being a lovely one. The epilogue had me tearing up. As much as I love "Encounters of the Tenth Kind," I have to say this is my favourite of your Doctor Who/POI crossovers to date.

So very lovely! (And you got Jenny Wren in! Hurray! :-) )

I've never inspired an epilogue before! And this finishes off the story beautifully (like the perfect cup of tea, I dare say). So often we see people mad at the Doctor (I think I flinched alongside him, but Brian is, well, just amazing), so it was really nice to see someone give him comfort and an understanding, "I'm there with you" hug. If Brian Williams was a real person, I think I would love to meet him. :-)
I still miss The Ponds, though. :-/ It's never easy when the Doctor loses friends (and in this case, family as well).

I meant to post a review/comment sooner, but I somehow managed not to. My apologies, for this is a *lovely* story. I so appreciate how you wove these three worlds together. You managed to do so in a way which makes perfect sense within each of their constructs, and in a way which bring a sense of closure and/or hope to characters who have been through so much.
If there is an epilogue or a one-shot involving the Doctor visiting Brian, I will probably dance for joy. Just saying. :-)

Oh, so SWEET! John, you big softie!

Oh, lovely. Lovely, lovely, lovely.

Heh heh, poor Harold and his adoring women. :-) What's a would-be paranoid recluse to do? And buying OMF "because it was there" - he is a proper Dickensian and no mistake!

"...A difficult way for a mother to live. But perfectly ordinary. He didn't need to worry about her."
Cue flight attendant serving green tea on a flight that doesn't have it. Well that certainly looks suspicious.
Can't wait to see what happens! :D
