Forbidden Time

This is the weekend of the month's Big Finish releases. I'm never sure which to listen to first, so by the magic of my MP3 player I am going in alphabetical order by title, which means starting with this month's Companion Chronicle, a Second Doctor story with Polly, Ben and Jamie, told by Anneke Wills with occasional interludes from Fraser Hines. The story, by David Lock (who appears to be a newcomer to Who writing), is not all that great - rather odd timey-wimey aliens, somewhat stilted framing narrative which has a weak ending - but Wills' voice is beautiful and she does a fantastic job both as Polly and as the aliens. (Hines, uncharacteristically, seems a bit weaker this time.)
