A/N: This crossover is set in Series 5 of Friends (after 'The One With the Triplets') but in an AU series 2 of Doctor Who where Captain Jack Harkness never got left on the Gamestation and continues travelling with the newly-regenerated 10th Doctor and Rose. Also, Friends is set in 2007 to make the timeline correct for Rose to be there.
Disclaimer: We own nothing! Otherwise we would have made this a real TV show!
Chapter One: The one with Doctor Who
"Hey, guys!" Phoebe announced happily, shutting the door to Monica and Rachel's apartment.
Monica, Chandler, Rachel, Ross and Joey all called hello back, all sat in the sitting room space.
"Guess what? I went to see my psychic today!" Phoebe exclaimed, excited, prompting several audible groans from her friends. "Oh, don't sound too excited!" Phoebe complained, dumping her bag and coat on the kitchen table before walking over and standing in front of the TV. "Anyway, she told me that I and my close friends are going to receive a visitor from outer space!"
"Oh a Martian!" Ross said sarcastically, Phoebe slapped him on the back of the head feeling annoyed at her friend's apparent lack of interest.
"Oh, Phoebes, you can't really believe that psychic? Nothing she said has ever come true!" Rachel protested "and she said two of your friends would find a new love together... and that's not going to happen is it?" she added, laughing.
Everyone else joined in Rachel's giggle no one noticed the worried glances shared between Monica and Chandler -who had been secretly dating for some time now.
This was backed by murmurs of agreement from the rest of their friends.
"Well I don't know, I just have a really good feeling about this, guys!" Phoebe protested.
Sighing, she flopped down in the armchair as Monica switched the TV on.
Just over two hours after Phoebe had announced that they would be getting a visitor from outer space, Joey was in his apartment making a sandwich with ingredients he had borrowed- borrowed, not stolen- from Monica and Rachel's apartment across the hall. He finished making his double turkey sandwich and grinned at it in satisfaction. Then, he flung open his apartment door and strolled across the hall and into Monica and Rachel's apartment. He flopped onto the sofa, taking a bite from his sandwich. However, it wasn't until he went to put his feet up on the table that he realised there was no table. Monica and Rachel's apartment looked...different, somehow. Just then, a man slightly older than Joey and a young woman a few years younger than him entered the room staring on shocked at the unexpected visitor. There was a long uncomfortable silence before anyone spoke.
"Who are you? How did you get in here?" the man asked, bewildered.
Joey jumped up from the chair, his sandwich now forgotten.
"You're not Monica and Rachel!" Joey whimpered, confused.
"Who and who?" the girl asked. Her accent was clearly British, whereas the man's was American like Joey's.
Before Joey could answer, the girl was shouting over her shoulder for a doctor. Joey's eyes widened when a tall skinny man in a suit skidded into the room.
"How did you get into my TARDIS?" the man asked. He had a British accent similar to the girl's.
Joey's eyes rolled back in his head and he fell to the floor in a dead faint, his sandwich laying forgotten by his side...
The trio shared a worried look and then rushed over to Joey's side.
"Do you think he's ok?" the girl asked, suddenly concerned for their mysterious intruder.
"Just a bit shocked" the British man said comfortingly "I dread to think what he'll do when he sees the TARDIS is bigger on the inside".
When Joey woke up, the first thing he remembered was the rather strange dream he'd had. However, as his vision cleared, three faces swum into view. Joey screamed.
"Looks like he's awake." The American pointed out, smirking.
The young woman slapped him round the back of the head.
"We can see that, Jack. No need to point out the obvious!" the young woman snapped.
Joey pushed himself into a sitting position, groaning when he saw his sandwich crushed against the dirty metal grating that seemed to be the floor.
"Hello," the British man announced, offering Joey his hand to pull him up "I'm the Doctor!"
Joey took the Doctor's hand, pulling himself up.
"Err...hi, Doctor. I'm Joey. Joey Tribbiani. You probably recognise me from a show called 'Days of our Lives'." Joey announced, gaining his confidence and grinning at the Doctor.
However, his smile fell as the Doctor, Jack, and the young woman exchanged confused glances.
"Umm, I'm afraid we travel a lot, don't see much TV." The young woman explained apologetically.
"Yeah?" Joey asked, eyes on the young woman now as he grinned at her. "And what's your name?"
"Rose." Rose replied, blushing slightly.
"Well, Rose, how you doin'?" Joey asked flirtatiously.
Before Rose could reply, the Doctor stepped closer to her, putting an arm round her shoulder supportively, hugging her to him.
Joey sighed in defeat.
"Well, would you guys explain to me where I am?" Joey asked, irritated.
"This" the Doctor explained, gesturing around them with his free hand "is the TARDIS. It's a...well, I suppose you'd call it a spaceship. Although, it travels in time too."
"Oh my god, Phoebe's psychic was right!" Joey all but screamed.
Jack, Rose and the Doctor shared a confused look.
"Who's Phoebe?" they asked.
"Guys, guys! Phoebe's psychic was right!" Joey shouted, bursting into Monica and Rachel's flat.
"Joey, have you been drinking my cooking sherry again?" Monica asked her friend.
"Well, yes, but that's not the point! There really are aliens, and I've met them! Well, actually, only one of them is an alien, another is from London and the other is from the 51st century but, hey! They travel in space!" Joey announced, jumping up and down like a child.
Chandler and Ross shared a look and looked like they were about to say something when Rachel spoke first.
"Well, where are the 'aliens', Joey?" Rachel asked.
"Well..." Joey began, but just then, Rose, the Doctor and Jack walked in.
"Ah, Joey! We wondered where you'd gotten to!" the Doctor announced, clapping Joey on the back. It was then that he noticed Ross, Rachel, Chandler, Monica and Phoebe staring at him open-mouthed. "Oh, and these must be your friends! Hello, I'm the Doctor, this is Jack and this is Rose."
Rose and Jack waved.
Ross turned to Joey. "Are these some guys from those acting workshops you went to?"
"Oh, certainly not. Rubbish at acting, me." The Doctor chipped in, grinning.
"Oh yeah? And how did you get here, then?" Monica demanded.
"My TARDIS. Come and see for yourself, if you want." The Doctor told them.
He watched as the friends glanced at each other uncertainly.
"Well come on, what are you waiting for?" he asked, leading them from the apartment.
As Ross, Rachel, Phoebe, Monica and Chandler stepped into the TARDIS, there were gasps from all of them as well as several "Oh my god!"s, "This has to be a trick!" and, of course, a "This place could do with a clean!" from Monica, while Joey stood, grinning by the door. No one seemed to notice Monica grabbing Chandler's hand apart from the Doctor.
"You're really aliens?" Ross asked, unconvinced.
"Well, the Doctor here, is. However, Rose is from London 2007 and I am from the 51st century. But we're all time travellers. We travel in space quite a lot, too." Jack explained.
Ross, Rachel, Chandler and Monica were all still in shock when Phoebe grinned.
"Looks like my psychic was right!" Phoebe announced smugly.
