Rulebook (6.10)

Big Finish - Short Trips Season 6

The Doctor and Peri are stuck on a planet where the rules mean more than the exceptions. The rules, as Peri says, are like a religion to them. So Yorval is just following the rules, since the Doctor and Peri are officially dead since they travelled through the transmat. By the law of the Elani, anyway. So things are complicated by the rule book. I did expect them to figure out a loophole but not for this one. They just stayed within the rules and caused some chaos of their own, so they could slip through the cracks and escape. With the assistance of Yorval, of course. This was a fun story, though a bit frustrating at times, which I could totally feel through Nicola Bryant’s frustration. Nicely done all around!
