Two To Make Peace, by Kathryn Andersen
Although it helps to have a general idea what Doctor Who is about, it's not necessary to be familiar with the actual show, which helped in my decision to choose to read this story.
Miles' voice was spot on, and from the little I've seen of DW, so was the Doctor's. Very enjoyable story.
The man smiled. “I’m the Doctor.”
“Doctor who?” Miles asked.
“Just the Doctor,” the man said. “Well, you can call me Doctor Smith if you like, but it’s not my real name.”
“So what’s your real name?”
“Oh, it’s unpronounceable,” the Doctor said. “What’s yours?”
“Miles Naismith,” Miles said. No point in using his cover ID now that things had gone to hell. And it would be interesting to see how this “Doctor Smith” reacted to his “official” name — well, his name with the Dendarii. Though sometimes that felt more real than his real name.
“You’re Admiral Naismith?” The stranger grinned and grabbed Miles’ hand, shaking it in the custom of Earth. “Marvelous! It’s an honour to meet you. What you did on Dagoola IV was brilliant!”
