Starborn (#8.09)

Big Finish, Companion Chronicles

The premise of this story is that Vicki is warning herself, from the future, about when she will die in her next adventure. But present Vicki catches future Vicki on a few details, which I honestly missed completely, and the true identity of the spirit is revealed. And the mystery of the story is really the interesting part, while we listen to what happens on the world surrounded by “stars.” The reveal itself is just okay but I didn’t expect it to be spectacular – how can you follow up that story? I rather enjoy this one but the ending just drops off in excitement and interest for me.
