Story Summary: The Doctor and Jack have gotten themselves in a sticky situation and are about to be auctioned off as concubines on the planet Trioditis. What will Rose have to do in order to free her men?
This story is just pure hilarity. There are several tropes rolling around out there which are completely absurd and silly. In this story, honorh embraces the farce and writes something so ridiculous, so insane, that one can actually imagine it happening.
I’m not sure when I first doubled over in laughter. Was it when the Ninth Doctor is goaded into actually taking the auction seriously and competing with Jack for bigger bids? Or was it when Rose marches in, dressed to kill, and playing a Paris Hilton wannabe to the hilt? Either way, don’t read this for serious character development. Read it for the unabashed silliness. Like me, you may even be surprised at the end to realize that the story has ultimately provided us with a character building, friendship-expanding event that explains the kind of camaraderie we see in “Boom Town.”
