Tales from the Vault (#6.01)

Big Finish, Companion Chronicles

I rather enjoyed this audio adventure, even though it was rather predictable in some ways. I liked how the artifacts all had their own audio recordings with old companions. That made this audio extra entertaining to hear from Jo Grant, Zoe, Steven Taylor, and Romana. Daphne Ashbrook and Yee Jee Tso returned to the rapport of the TV movie quite easily. It was fun to listen to them speak to each other as different characters. They’ve both done different stories in Big Finish but this is the first where they are playing characters together. And with lots of interaction! Though the solution’s a bit predictable it plays out well and I can’t wait to hear any future stories from the vault.
