The Story of Extinction (10.2)

Big Finish Special Release

I really loved this story as it was extra creative in how it dealt with an alien planet and the villain of the piece. The people end up being the villains, or is it the Doctor and his companions? Or the technology they bring with them? Amyrndaa is a challenging place to live but no one survives the story! Victoria is teaching Jamie to read and the frame of the piece is Victoria having a piece of advanced paper, from this story, taken from her home in the modern day and replaced with a box, which has a note from Jamie inside. The first he writes after he learns to read. I also love that his inability to read confounds the villainous paper and the Story of the piece. Nicely done all around!
