An alien child visits "the monkey house" at her local zoo where humans captured from Planet Earth are imprisoned. Instead, she finds the Fifth Doctor, Tegan, and Nyssa staying there and the Doctor even has the temerity to speak to her.

Overall, this is a charming story. It's messages and themes are telegraphed, but the child and her culture are fairly well-developed, and the relationship with the Doctor was endearing. I also thought Tegan playing up being in the zoo was hilarious. One point that threw me in the story is that the author described Tegan as wearing her Season 19 outfit which left me confused as to when this was set as the indication was that Turlough was in the TARDIS. Still, this is a nice story and a worthwhile bonus for subscribers.
