The third segment in the collection is the weakest of the set. Peri takes advantage of being mistaken for a writer at the inset of WW2 as she and The Doctor investigate a series of threatening letters while looking out for an alien artifact. The mystery plot itself isn't bad but the writer attempts to tackle issues of female empowerment plus racism and nationalism leading up to the war while solving a conventional mystery and mixing in an alien menace to boot. That is more than anyone could adequately tackle in a 30 minute audio. It's not a bad story but it could be tighter.

A whodunit that finds Peri mistaken for a successful mystery writer who is an alumnus of an all women's college. She's asked to investigate with the help of her assistant, the Doctor. Overall, a fun mystery with a great setting, and still enough mysterious elements to make it a good Doctor Who story to boot. I also like the Doctor having to navigate being the assistant, and also facing some restrictions and resistance at an all women's college.

Doctor Who meets Gaudy Night - from the setting of a poison pen writer menacing a ladies' college, right down to Peri being mistaken for a Harriet Vane-like mystery author who sets about to discover the culprit. I thought it was a good tightly-written story, basically a whodunit in form, with some entertaining bits about the Doctor and Peri finding themselves in swapped Doctor/Assistant roles. Peri necessarily takes greater command of the situation in this story compared with the Doctor, and it's handled very well. A fun half hour, I enjoyed it.
