Night’s Black Agents (#4.11)

Big Finish, Companion Chronicles

Hmmm. I rather enjoyed this adventure though it is placed a little oddly in the Big Finish “canon” with an older Jamie with the 6th Doctor. This must be placed in the time they travel together which is a trilogy in the main range. The story has Jamie and the Doctor wandering across Scotland, continuing a previous story, looking for the TARDIS. They are attacked by a kelpie in the moors and rescued by Merodach, a very strange looking priest, who we discover is keen on getting into the TARDIS. And marries the local beauty, Lucy, after presumably killing her family. There is some strangeness of location and villain but the story is fun to follow, with Jamie fighting off multiple attackers with the sword multiple times. It’s an entertaining story but with a villain lacking in smarts, that’s for sure. Our hero Jamie!
