Author's Stargate fic hereWhy this must be read:
SG1 has lost Major Carter - oops - and the aliens holding her insist that they take part in a race to get her back. So they need a driver. But just not any
driver. They need the best. In fact, they need the Stig - test driver for BBC show Top Gear
. Unfortunately for SG1 the Stig comes with three motoring journalists attached, who aren't that keen on letting him go and
have a really dodgy idea of the meaning of the words 'National Security'.
Although I think it works well even knowing only the Stargate half of the crossover, but - ( Top Gear? )
Usually SG1 come across journalists that are intent on unveiling government secrets and it's really funny to watch their increasing exasperation - Jack's especially - as they struggle to deal with attitudes that are less 'Wow, that guy's an alien' and more 'Wow, look at that guy's car'. The author really nails the voices and attitudes of both groups - Teal'c and the Stig so
would get on. And once the story's initial premise is accepted it's an amusing look at the Stargate
-verse from an outsider view.
And the Doctor Who
crossover? Well, it turns out that 'The' is a really popular first name on Gallifrey.( Excerpt )The Intergalactic Space Race Special
