Little Doctors (5.02)

Big Finish - Short Trips Season 5

This story feels like about 10 minutes of linking narrative has been cut out of it to make it a really short trip. So it was a bit confusing to follow, to be honest. I started to enjoy it about 2/3rds of the way through, after my brain had processed the story and provided the links to make it more coherent. I think I like the idea – the Doctor, interfering again to ‘give a place more color’ in his own way. The ending seems to indicate that this is a good thing as the people are actually making an emotional connection with each other. Though it’s not clear to me that Zeus may consider that the best way to go, he’ll let it slide for now. Fun but awkward. And it feels like a bit of a disservice to both Phillip Lawrence and Frazer Hines.
