Very bland and slightly boring, didn't really know what was happening most of the time, will need to re-listen to it in the future but not something I would recommend.

Having not read the novel prior to the audio, I was a little weary and not wanting to have an inferior experience, thinking Big Finish would water down the more adult parts of the novel, and although the did (I know from reading the differences on TardisWiki) it was still as phenomenal story. Those in 2003 who were worried about Russell T. Davies taking over and bringing Doctor Who back need not have worried when he wrote this; and you can see elements of this in his era of the show, the Tylers, the council estate, the relationships with others on the estate and the companions significantly driving the plot as both the Doctor and companion have their own mini-adventure or task to do.
This adaption has made me want to read the New Adventures and experience the development of 7 because from the two Big Finish adaptions I have heard (this and Cold Fusion) he has intrigued me so very much I need to know more.
An excellent story that is highly and whole-heartily recommended.

Utterly loved this story. Out of all the Big Finish productions I have heard, this one is my favorite so far. It's not the average multi-doctor story, with 5 and 7 only sharing a few scenes near the end together; this is because it is essentially a 5th Doctor story, with 7 manipulating events in the background, in which he involves his two companions Chris and Roz, who primarily interact with 5's companions, Adric, Tegan and Nyssa. Neither 5 or 7 are particular favorite incarnations of mine but in the scenes they share together, I love them; from their quirky remarks about each others voices, the continuity references about previous encounters and other multi-doctor stories to the manipulation of the scene by 7.
All the elements about the character of Patience is very intriguing; I haven't read many New Adventures of Missing Adventures, and therefore I'm not an expert on what grounds they covered regarding the Doctor's background and origin, although have read a little about them in online discussions and Wikis, mainly regarding Lungbarrow and the Looms. I would have loved to see Big Finish adapt those stories, enabling them to be more accessible to a wider audience, to those who cannot buy the novels due to excessive prices or rarity. Such a pity that the novel adaptions range didn't sell well to warrant any further releases, as this release alongside "Original Sin" were marketed as the final novel adaptions, as they ended on a mega high with this story, but also it is a wasted opportunity to not tell those fascinating stories about our favorite time-travelling hero.
Highly recommended to all, hopefully everyone can buy these audios and cause an boost in sales and Big Finish will see the demand and interest in these stories :P

Thoroughly enjoyed this one, very much of the era; Frazer Hines' impression of Troughton is fabulous (Big Finish needs to do a adventure where this TARDIS crew faces Salamander again!). The Cybermen are authentic to the time, a cross between Invasion and Tomb/Moonbase. Very underrated based on the current TimeScales average IMO.
Highly recommended, one of my favorite 2nd Doctor audios :)
