Another It Didn't Really Happen Ending

While Voyage to the New World starts as a historical, it moves into becoming a quasi-supernatural story of the disappearance of the Roanoke colony in the 1590s. The scope of the story is a bit larger than the 1 hour time limit, so there is much skipping across days and weeks in the early part of the story. Big Finish does well here in accomplishing a lot with a little. Nevertheless, part of what does not quite work for me in this is the general air of depressed inevitability running through it. The characters don't exactly just give up, but they don't exactly strive hard for overcoming the problem either. And then we get another timey-wimey it didn't really happen ending. This seems to me too convenient a way for a writer to get out of a sticky problem.
