5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!, 26 Oct 2010
This review is from: Find and Replace (Doctor Who: The Companion Chronicles) (Audio CD)
I loved this Companion Chronicles story. The atmosphere was just right. Jo shopping for presents at Christmas in a big department store and getting stuck in a lift with Huxley, the noveliser from Verbatim six.

Katy Manning does a brilliant job of recreating her character of Jo, and is in total contrast to her portrayal of Iris Wildthyme.
But it's her impression of Jon Pertwee's voice that is so remarkably accurate. I really feel I am experiencing a genuine story from way back in the 3rd Doctor's era, such is the degree of successful characterisation Katy achieves. I could easily visualise the story in my mind, as Katy (as Jo) goes back in time and once again sees the familiar surroundings of the UNIT establishment and 'her' Doctor working in his workshop still attempting to find some way he may 'escape' from planet Earth.

The Doctor doesn't appear until the 2nd epsiode, but the lead up to this, throughout episode 1, is extremely well done and held my interest completely. And then, when Jo is reunited with the Doctor, it is just the icing on the cake. One of the best stories Big Finish have ever done.

I hope they do another one with Jo and Iris and the Doctor. I'd also love to hear another CC done with Charlotte (Charley to her friends) Pollard as I miss hearing India Fisher in the audios.
But this CC really is one of the very best ever!
