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
