I really have got sequelitis. When I wrote Master Test and the Doctor
promised the Master a House of Eliott crossover I promised myself I
wouldn't do this, I really did.
But somehow, it still happened...
The Eighth Doctor promised a life of fashion to the Movie Master, but
it's not what he hoped for...
(The House of Eliott was a popular 90s BBC Drama about two sisters in
the 1920s, once brilliantly parodied by French & Saunders... And I
enjoyed writing this far too much).
Master in the (Fashion) House
(A double drabble)
Beatrice Eliott glanced up from the accounts as her sister Evangeline
burst into her office.

priceless in the right time and place.
Evie stared at Bea in dismay before storming out. "Bea, how could

those dark glasses?" She shrugged and picked up the ringing

TTR: The Master's Designs
by V Jewitt
The Movie Master was in a foul mood as he threw himself down at the
bar and ordered an Eye of Orion Flameball.
"What's up?" asked Harry nervously.
"A double drabble!" he snarled. "The Doctor promises me a fashion
