Off-topic slightly: instead of new series stuff, I wanted to discuss classic series stuff, namely the latest Big Finish audio release. I had pre-ordered The Fifth Doctor Boxset
(it's a special release because these are the first stories Matthew 'Adric' Waterhouse has agreed to do since leaving the series), and today, I got the download, with the CDs presumably being sent as we speak.
Not only that, but I listened to the first of the two stories in the set: Psychodrome
. It's an excellent story, set immediately after the events of Castrovalva
(the Fifth Doctor's debut story), and has the TARDIS crew struggling to accept each other: Adric is finding it hard to accept the absence of the Fourth Doctor, Tegan isn't happy that she hasn't made it back to her job at Heathrow Airport, and both she and Nyssa are still mourning their respective family members killed by the Master.
So, not exactly the best team to come to a place where the environment is influenced by thoughts and memories, conscious, subconscious, or unconscious...
There's a second one I'll try to listen to tomorrow called Iterations of I
. Apparently it refers to the imaginary number i
I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.
