Afterlife, by Matt Fitton

An audio that will really appeal to those who are already fans of the Big Finish storyline with Hex, which appeared to have come to an end back in 2012. The first episode is practically a two-hander between Sylvester McCoy and Sophie Aldred, which for me is one of the best examinations of both the Doctor as manipulator and Ace's natural resentment of that; then we move into what appears at first to be an alternate timeline where Hex's life worked out very differently, with the true state of affairs only gradually becoming apparent. Amy Pemberton, who played Sally Morgan in several previous Seventh Doctor plays, also joins the crowd. It's an excellent twist to the end of Hex's story, and might even be lucid enough for fans who aren't already familiar with it to enjoy.
