The Flying Frenchmen (9.1)

Big Finish Jago and Litefoot Series

Our inestimable duo heads out on a cruise, to wile away the time on the Fata Morgana. With a familiar foe, Aubrey, on board. So we know something is afoot from the very beginning! So the cruise begins and the team interacts with other people on the cruise with their usual aplomb. Then the mysterious goings on begin as the ship is stuck in a fog bank, where clocks don’t work, nor do the engines. And the Fata Morgana appears with people from alternative histories aboard. What is all of this about? Well, we don’t find out here.

Something is going on and the plans of the sinister people behind it (or person) are not revealed in this part of the story. Though no one seems to be in much danger and there only seem to be 5 people on board of the cruise ship. Odd that. Story is nicely done but not too freaky – yet. And why/how they escape is not explained – yet. Soon enough, I’m sure, we will find out. Soon enough! And even Ellie and Inspector Quick will have a hand in solving the mystery, I’ll warrant.
