1001 Nights was Big Finish annual anthology collection, containing multiple short stories involving the Doctor. This collection took a different approach as three of the stories were told by Nyssa to a Sultan, who taking a page from Arabian Nights was demanding stories about the Doctor.
All the stories work beautifully and the framing story is particularly well-written with Alexander Siddig turning in a very good performance as the Sultan. At first, it seems like this is a very simple framing device, but as the story goes on, it becomes clear that the Sultan has an ulterior motive. Sarah Sutton also has one of her best overall performances as Nyssa, and Nadim Sawalha turned in an intriguing performance, and had a beautiful scene in the final episode.
Overall, this production is a treat and a superb listen.
