It’s been some time since the TV episode as Jenny is on another stolen spaceship (following the family habit) and she gets into a fender bender with another ship, and finds herself in the midst of a space con, even while someone very dangerous is hunting her down.
This story was one of the most enjoyable stories I’ve heard from Matt Fitton. The guest characters are pretty good. Jenny’s de facto companion Noah is a bit of a blank slate given that he awakes without memory, but this story does a nice job of setting. Over the course of the hour, there’s a great sense of action and fun as Jenny tries to dodge the bad guys and save the day.
The tone of the first episode is great. Big Finish has a wide array of female-led series, yet they all have quite different fields to them. Georgia Tennant plays Jenny in a way that’s very different. She’s still quite new to the Universe, she’s filled with optimism, pluck, and big dreams. She’s not an all-purpose Mary Sue. However, she’s a believably quick study.
For a first episode, and a reintroduction of a character whose first appearance had mixed reviews, this was really quite marvelous.
