Claustrophobia, and old friends he thought were lost. Nine, Rose, Jack, Ace.

Yes! A good peril, and it was so good to see Ace (post-NA mature Ace) again. It just works.

Summary:Nothing lasts forever. A coda to Big Finish #91: Circular Time - Autumn, by Paul Cornell.

This catches the tone of the BFA story to which it is a coda; it clears the air, like the air is freshened anew after a storm. I could hear both the Doctor's and Nyssa's voices in this.

Characters: Martha Jones, Tenth Doctor

Summary: Martha learns about a side of the Doctor she hasn't seen before. Well, make that nine sides, actually.

That was tear-pricking lovely. I loved the way it was written, the sketches of Doctors-past, how they are all different and all the same person, but I also liked that there was a plot and a reason for this to happen, that made sense.

I liked how Martha was Martha, competent and willing in a crisis, giving all she can, and yet human enough to feel she can never live up to the memory of companions-past.
