Sherlock Holmes and the Time Lord

‘So, it’s true.’ Watson wiped the condensation from the window. ‘The last cough of winter comes in May.’
‘The feasts of the Ice Saints.’ Holmes removed the needle from his arm.
‘One day,’ said Watson, ‘that opium will kill you, and I can’t save you.’
‘Ah Watson, I’m already dead.’ Holmes laughed. ‘Life is relative. Now, where is she?’ He closed his eyes. ‘Where! damn you woman, where?’
Watson sipped his Earl Grey and stared at the pale face of Holmes. He was delirious and mumbling on about a “Tardis” and “The Doctor” hidden beneath the Athabasca Glacier in Canada.

  4. Dear James,

    I know just enough about Dr. Who to get the Tardis reference. Only watched a few episodes back in the early 70’s. 😉 Good crossover, nonetheless.

  7. You actually captured the characters of Watson and Holmes so well that you could ghostwrite more Sherlock Holmes mysteries.
