"I Met a Man Today" is based on the TV episode, "Many Happy Returns." It takes a really different approach than on television. In the TV episode, Number 6 wakes up and goes to get his shower, and discovers everyone in the Village is gone. Eventually, Number 6 builds a raft, fights a couple men on a boat, and makes his way to London, finding himself at his old house where both his house and car being owned by a woman.

All that plot is essentially summarized in the middle of the audio episode. The audio version focuses on Number 6's emotional journey as he found himself in London, exhausted, unsure who to trust, or even if this was real. The story also takes some time to really develop and explore the relationship between Number Six and Kate (the woman who owns his house and car.) Lucie Briggs Owens is wonderful as Kate, and Elstob is on-point as Number 6 throughout the story.

Overall, a very pleasing re-interpretation of a strong episode that may be better than the source material.
