  1. Hi Tim,

    Thanks for dropping a line.

    I’ve checked the press release for the Short Trips with Turlough – https://www.bigfinish.com/news/v/doctor-who—more-monthly-short-trips-for-2016

    I don’t know what’s become of ‘Trap For Fools’. The link for the story on the press release seems to go directly to a ‘A Full Life’ instead.

    I’m sure it’ll be released soon. They must be still arranging the Short Trips for the rest of 2017 at this time. Have you contacted BF to ask where and when ‘Trap For Fools’ is and be released?

    Thanks Tim.

    Tim. 🙂

  2. Hi Tom!

    Thanks for dropping a line!

    It was suggested on ‘The Divergent Universe’ forum that ‘Fallen Angels’ takes place after’ And You Will Obey Me’ which was another solo Fifth Doctor adventure made in 2016. – http://notthebigfinishforum.freeforums.net/thread/352/timeline-requests?page=4

    Eyespider seems to think on the same lines with putting ‘Fallen Angels’ after’ And You Will Obey Me’ too – http://eyespider.org.uk/drwho/pd/list.html

    Having listened to the audio myself, I concur with this suggestion made since there isn’t a clear indication of where the story might take place in the Fifth Doctor’s timeline.

    Thanks again.

    Tim. 🙂

  3. Thanks bafflementanddevotion.

    I’ve now placed ‘Fallen Angels’ (Audio) in between ‘The Tides of Time’ (Graphic Novel) and ‘Renaissance of the Daleks’ (Audio) on the Fifth Doctor’s timeline.
