This review is from: The Nowhere Place (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)
This is another in the stories featuring the Sixth Doctor, and his companion Evelyn Smythe. In this story, the Doctor and Evelyn hear a bell ringing - investigating, the Doctor is horrified by what appears to be a vision of Earth; and on further investigation, the two find themselves on an Earth fighter-carrier, Valiant out by Pluto. The year is 2197 and the captain is having enough troubles of her own without adding two oddly dressed and oddly behaving stowaways to add to them. Add to that a train trip in 1952, with two rather peculiar passengers; and there's a mystery indeed afoot.
The story takes the Doctor and Evelyn to places where they would probably rather not have to go; and the Doctor find himself having to make terrible decisions with potentially awful consequences. But then when doesn't he?
This is a great story; the rapport between the Doctor and Evelyn is great; they get on well, they have a real affection, and the storyline takes their relationship seriously while also giving the listener a really good story to be involved in. Great stuff; highly recommended.

Did you know Big Finish released two alternative sleeves to this release?, Great intriguing adventure written by Dalek supremo Nick Briggs.
Your reviews are sharp & well constructed.
