El Asesino Voynich. (GUIÓN FANFIC de la serie "Castle")

This small script in what young people call FANFIC is dedicated to Andrew W. Marlowe, Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, and all those actors, writers and producers who make possible the episodes of the series "Castle". As they try to write each fragment is a dual Spanish and English. Although possibly my English needs some improvement is always translated the Spanish version.

CASTLE: Yeah, there were things in those episodes that did not seem very Doctor Who.
