The Selachian Gambit

Another of the recent Big Finish Companion Chronicles, this time reuniting Fraser Hines as Jamie McCrimmon and Anneke Wills as Polly Wright, with Hines doing most of the other voices including the Second Doctor and Jamie. It's a fairly routine romp of a futuristic bank being raided by aliens, a concept recently done much better in Naomi Alderman's Eleventh Doctor novel Borrowed Time, but it's fun anyway. I have a feeling that the story of the Second Doctor encountering the shark-like Selachians here isn't quite consistent with that in the two novels which feature them, but as they are all by Steve Lyons I won't let it worry me too much.
