This was the first of the Companion Chronicles that I listened to, and all I can say is: wow. The plot is well written and thought out, and has a wonderfully clever time paradox. It begins with the second Doctor's former companion Jamie being visited by a mysterious stranger who wants to know about a visit that he, the Doctor and fellow companion Zoe paid to London when King James II is about to escape into exile, to be replaced by William of Orange. Jamie obviously has strong feelings about this, as it was eventually to lead to the Jacobite rebellion which is disturbing his own time, and obviously as a Jacobite he is on the side of James and not William. What follows is really gripping, and it makes use of Jamie's character in a very inventive and believable way. I particularly like the way that Johnathan Morris has the Doctor, Jamie and Zoe plunged into trouble practically as soon as they step out of the TARDIS - which, as all seasoned fans of both the classic and the modern series will know, happens quite a lot in Doctor Who! - and therefore doesn't give the listener a chance to get bored. After that, he doesn't let you go. He keeps the suspense and action fast paced, but not to the extent that you lose track of what's happening. I'm afraid I'm not very good on the period, but from what I know I think that he's created the flavour really well. He deals admirably with the fact that Jamie has lost all recollection of his travels with the Doctor after having his memory wiped by the Time Lords, and he makes the plot very interesting by bringing in the element that somehow, by telling the story to the visitor, Jamie is sorting out the rupture in history. It is, of course, a great bonus that the writer has got the characters of Jamie, the second Doctor and Zoe off to a tee, and also that Frazer Hines reads the story so well and does such a convincing impression of the second Doctor that you could swear Patrick Troughton was in the studio reading the Doctor's lines. The story concludes well and in a very satisfying way. Through the whole thing, it's surprising how vivid the story can become with two actors and basic sound effects. It just goes to show that big is not always better. In conclusion, with an almost flawless story, and such a talented actor as Frazer Hines reading it, which Doctor Who fan wouldn't want to buy this?
