A brilliant idea

Placing later Doctors with earlier companions is a brilliant idea. And its great to hear Sylv with Katy! They just gel so very well indeed in a highly entertaining story by the ever dependable Nick Briggs. Big Finish do the best Doctor Who around today, it has to be said. This story flows along nicely, and as per usual the soundscape and score are brilliant and totally in keeping with the Jon Pertwee era of the show! The Defectors is a great story, and the ending really surprised me in that Jo gets so flared up about...well I wont give too much away but I will say this is a great start to The Locum Doctors trilogy!!

Misses the Possibilities

The premise of the story is to get Doctor 7 into a Doctor 3 adventure. Somehow, Doctor 7 is inserted into Doctor 3's timeline, where he must team up with a doubtful Jo Grant to stop some blue humans in makeup from doing something, though we are not quite sure what until near the end. This story definitely has the feel of 1973, enhanced by soundtrack music imitating Dudley Simpson's with deadly accuracy and a slightly less high-tech soundscape overall. Unfortunately, it is marred by a "they all forget" ending. I hate these because they make the whole journey of the story pointless.
