Echoes of Grey (#5.02)

Big Finish, Companion Chronicles

And here we find the first story in the ongoing saga of Zoe Heriot and her memory of the Doctor vs. “the Company.” Ali Monroe just happens to run into Zoe in a space station and talks to her about her experience with the Doctor and the Acromatics. Zoe is talked into working through her memories of the story with Jamie and the Doctor, with her eidetic memory working through the details. And of course Ali isn’t what she appears to be, which you get the idea of throughout the story. I rather enjoyed this story but it was also strange because I was listening to it in the wrong order – in terms of the other Zoe stories where the Company is trying to get information from her. “My name is Zoe Heriot. I remember everything and I remember nothing.” Classic story wrapped up in a new horror yet to come for Zoe…
