Flight into Hull! (8.8)

Big Finish - Short Trips Season 8

I can’t say I really enjoyed the Jackie Tyler short trips. I did enjoy this one more than The Siege of Big Ben but it’s more of a story about the relationship between the Doctor and Jackie. The metacrisis Doctor and Jackie are sent off on a break in a dirigible as a not so subtle way for them to learn to get along together. The Doctor isn’t talking much in this story and they definitely aren’t getting along. But along comes another Jackie Tyler from another universe things really get moving. That universe is dying and that Jackie is a scientist of some renown so it’s a different place indeed. The Doctor and Jackie come to an understanding eventually, though, which made it a better story for me all around.
