Gardeners’ World (7.02)

Big Finish - Short Trips Season 7

Meredith Bright has some out-of-control roses from out of this world, quite literally. She’s quite the gardener, working on extra-dimensional flowers in her back yard. So the Doctor is forced to take drastic action as the insects (Fideans) have come to take the power of the flowers. This story’s quite the fascinating in its path from beginning to end. It’s dependent on the Doctor to find the solution, as usual. Sonic screwdrivers are no longer available as the solution, only Meredith and her trimmers. I just love Tim Treloar’s performance as the 3rd Doctor! I could listen to it all day long. Gives 3rd Doctor stories the environmental gravitas to make them fantastic.
