Well done. Thank you for an enjoyable read.
Your plot is both clever and solid and your characters are true. The dialogue is good and captures the Caskett & Doctor/River relationships. You have created sensible aliens. This is a fine piece of writing.

Well, that was fun! Very well written, capturing all of the characters so no one was out of character and the story flowed smooth and believably. You didn't use any worn out races or try to make either side fit into the other's life. Nothing was cliched, excepting what cliches are already present in both shows and you managed a decent plot twist from both perspectives. I personally wouldn't have revealed the Doctor's past quite so quickly, but he did with Martha, so it's not completely out of bounds.

Wow what a story ! When I first took a look of the crossover between Castle and Doctor who, I didn't expect that Your story is truly wonderfull, I so enjoyed reading it ! :) I'm looking forward to read the awesome prequel. Your writing is fluid, and for a big whovian and caskett fan like me, it's clear that you perfectly reproduce the behaviour of every character. The trust, the love between castle and Beckett, the sadness of River, the guilty of the doc. You made me laugh to The dialogues are so perfect ! what a good idea, Come in to River, Castle and Beckett head... I just hope you'll enter more in The doc head next time River is one of my favourite character, I hope I'll see her again. Hope you took time to watch the episodes of the classics serie, There are so marvellous :D You do not want to miss that *_*
Sorry if I made a few faults, I'm french and my english is kind of approximate...

Wow. What a story. I so enjoyed this. The plot was incredible, full of twists. I loved the character interactions, and how well everything was thought out down to the last detail. There was, humor, sorrow, excitement - like a very good Doctor Who episode, plus the Castle gang. And you're writing really enhances what is already a terrific story.
Thanks so much. Can't wait to read the sequel.

To say ‘nice job’ is a SERIOUS understatement.
From the beginning, you created an intriguing case with circumstances that hinted at a situation that would require the Doctor’s involvement without making it too explicit- the cause of death was strange, but not something that couldn’t theoretically have a human explanation-, to say nothing of the amusement of the Doctor’s reaction to being arrested, and everything from then on has continued to impress.
The Doctor and Kate’s bonding moment after he revealed the loss of his home planet was excellent, and the case was an intriguing situation that plausibly gave both sides a reason to investigate without either being overshadowed, Castle and Beckett’s local knowledge and desire for justice working well with the Doctor and River’s superior knowledge of the weapons involved and the alien nature of the victims and the suspect.
I might have liked to see more of Ryan, Esposito and Lanie’s reaction to the ‘aliens are real’ revelation without the TARDIS as evidence, but your idea about the Karrows’ true history worked out very well, with the history of the Arondrians and the Fatorins sounding like a perfectly plausible addition to the Whoniverse, particularly with Tanya’s own ties to provide a human connection.
VERY nice touch with the moment when Castle provides the insight to see through the attempt at a trap, and the final confrontation with the true villain was brilliant, providing the best kind of monster; one whose motives we could almost sympathise with even if we absolutely cannot agree with their methods.
All in all, an excellent crossover that really used the characters from both sides to their fullest possible extent; keep up the great work!
