Washington Burns (6.3)

Big Finish - Short Trips Season 6

This is a rare story where Ace isn’t actually blowing things up but she is definitely in the thick of it. The story begins in 1814 when she accidentally shoots a horse, then it wanders forward to a future day in the history of Washington, DC. Where Cerebra is trying to take over the world. This is a very good story overall, though one word popped into my head at the very end: “idiot.” I also suspect the Doctor realized something had to remain as where did Cerebra come from in the first place? It’s a causality loop, I believe its called, and just can’t be avoided. Greed and the military mind!
