Counter Measures: Doctor Who and UNIT lacking both The Doctor and UNIT

Having The Doctor on Earth working with UNIT to solve some kind of weird alien science thing, or an alien invasion, is a big part of Doctor Who lore. The 3rd Doctor spent most of his time headquartered near London, "working for" Brigadier Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart as a "Science Advisor" taking care of all kinds of crazy technology things. That included dealing with the Loch Ness Monster, who turned out to be a Silurian pet, and fending off several insane schemes concocted by The Master.

Consider a slightly different story-line. One in which alien invasions and alien technology are affecting England in the 1960's, but there's no Doctor conveniently on-hand to solve the problems, and UNIT doesn't exist. Instead the top-secret organization tasked with these problems is run within the British old boys network of various Sir So-and-so's. That's Counter-Measures, an extremely hush-hush way beyond top secret agency tasked with taking care of alien incursion issues and other crazy items of technology.

Counter-Measures contains most of the elements of Doctor Who, except for time travel and the alien from a hugely advanced civilization. If you like the UNIT stories, you'll like Counter-Measures.
