The War To End All Wars, by Simon Guerrier

I am one of those who has been hoping that we would some day get a story telling us what happened to Steven Taylor after he was left behind to rule the planet of the Savages, and Simon Guerrier, who has done well in First Doctor stories for Big Finish, has finally provided us with one - though this is only the framing narrative, as Steven, long since overthrown by his former subjects, tells a visitor of a previous adventure on a planet where the time travellers were conscripted into a long-entrenched war between two factions. There is basically one idea here but it is done awfully well and fills the time very nicely, driven by Peter Purves' performance in his old role (and doing a decent take on the First Doctor and Dodo as well). And there's a fairly mind-blowing twist at the end; this was apparently the very last of the Companion Chronicles to be recorded, so I hope that Big Finish will come back to resolve it in their new range.
