Breaking Bubbles starts the quartet of stories off brilliantly. It gives us a nice entertaining nugget that considering its packed into just half an hour is superbly paced and has some great character moments indeed. Colin and Nicola as ever need no mentioning as they are always sublime. It touches on the pointlessness of war and battle in an engaging way.

Of Chaos Time The is a brilliant paradox tale. Its not remotely difficult to follow like some of the Moffatt era paradox stories and at its core is a very good emotional little core. It has again some great characters and some superb sound design that all just add to the feel of this set being very special indeed.

An Eye For Crime is another delightful story this time a bit of a pseudo historical, and the Doctor gets to do some good stuff trying to not be conspicuous in an all female college! And the menace in this story is awesome and definitely very intriguing. And the setting is very believably conveyed from the superb sound design and production I really do love Una McCormack's writing. She has a gift for characterisation in particular that really connects with this listener.

But the definite treasure of the set is The Curios Incident of the Doctor In The Night Time, which I feel is superbly written by Nev Fountain and so far easily his best story for big finish, and that's really something as this is only a single parter. But this story shines brilliantly, it tackles a very poignant subject with me as I happen to share the affliction the central character of this piece has. I find the story not insulting or derogatory at all. In fact its a brilliant little heart warming tale that should get an award. This is what these tales of the unexpected style one parter Doctor Who stories should all be like. Nev has hit the nail right on the nose with this superb little emotionally charged ditty. In fact I might even go as far as to say that this is my favouritest ever single episode drama that Big Finish has ever done. It really is that good.
