Easily one of the most thought provoking releases Big Finish has put out. The story has a clever frame of an older Adric composing an audio diary about his life. The plot itself is firmly placed in the midst of the original e-space trilogy after the events of State if Decay. From there, Adric tells his story about a scientist with a machine that can restore life to the dead and it becomes clear that Adric's timeline diverges from what we have seen.

The plot is strong and both writing and delivery are handled well. The ending raises a few questions for me but it's not worth spoiling.

An intriguing story that stars of one the most disliked Companions and does something intriguing. It grows him up and has him gain perspective as he tells the stories of his travels with Romana and the Doctor, which come to an unexpected end...for fans who know how it's supposed to end. We get to learn the life Adric would have had and it's an intriguing idea. Listening to it, it becomes clear that Waterhouse has become a very good actor in middle age and he turns in a solid performance with very good interpretations of the Doctor and Romana.

The story is not flawless. The resolution of how history gets back on track is a little hard to believe, but I still enjoyed this very different take on Adric and Waterhouse's performance.
