Somehow I hadn't gotten around to reading a rollercoaster Team Five fanfic, Serenity's Shadow, set on the one world in the Traken Union that wasn't wiped out during Logopolis. (Mentioned in Cold Fusion.) Author is Chryse on Teaspoon. Alas, she's only written this one novella-length epic.

It's Adric, Tegan, the Doctor and Nyssa. They all have moments to be great, and they're in character. Everything's really well-written, there's lots of canon tie-ins (but you don't need to know them to enjoy the story), tons of classic Who melodrama and cliffhangers and cultural factions and scheming and big scary moments and angst. 

I wish I could write this well.

At any rate, if you liked early 80s Who or anyone in this TARDIS team, very much worth a read.
