‘Circular Time: Winter’ (Audio)


Please feel free to comment on my review.

Winter’s End with the Fifth Doctor and Nyssa

The fourth and final episode of ‘Circular Time’ is probably the strangest of all. It is set after the Doctor and Nyssa’s travels together. I don’t want to reveal any spoilers in order to avoid the surprises for this episode.

This episode sums up everything that I love about Nyssa and the Doctor beautifully. Nyssa helps the Doctor to escape death, when she sees him again in a dream at a farmhouse during a snowy blizzard.

I found Nyssa’s closing speech at the end of the episode very moving as she describes how the story ended for her. I like how Nyssa says that she will always remember the Doctor and is so fond of him.

‘Circular Time’ is a Big Finish audio that I highly recommend and cherish! There’s lots of lovely character moments between the Doctor and Nyssa. If you’re in the mood for some relaxation and wonderful drama, then this should be the one for you if you’ve had a surfeit of Daleks; Cybermen and the lot.

‘Circular Time’ has made me want to purchase more Big Finish audios with the Doctor and Nyssa. The CD extras are as follows. On Disc 1, there’s a trailer for ‘Nocturne’ with Sylvester McCoy, Sophie Aldred and Philip Olivier. On Disc 2, there are trailers for more Doctor and Nyssa audios including ‘The Land of the Dead’; ‘Winter For The Adept’; ‘The Mutant Phase’; ‘Primeval’; ‘Spare Parts’; ‘Creatures of Beauty’ and ‘The Game’.

‘Winter’ rating – 9/10

‘Circular Time’ rating – 10/10

    One of if not the best single parter Big Finish have done, your review is a excellent informative read & kinda like a love letter to the fifth doctor era.

    Nice one Bradders.

      Thanks Timelord Simon. Glad you liked this. It certainly is a compelling and heart-warming episode to finish off the Fifth Doctor era and it’s great Nyssa gets to be with him to help to the end.

      Thanks. Tim. 🙂
