The Doctor and Martha crash into a time tourism ship and try to pass themselves off as inspectors as they uncover what's going on to cause time itself "pain."

Jake Dudman does a good job as is joined by the superb Jon Culshaw, as conman Nathan Hobbs, who is running the errant time vessel. The production has some very humorous parts and nice acting that almost gives a full cast feel. The plot is a bit lacking. As much potential as there is in time tourism, this is basically a base under siege story with a lot of technobabble. Still, it's delightfully acted and it has a real Series 3 feel, which makes it a fun listen despite its flaws.

Backtrack is a strong second outing for the Jacob Dudman-led Tenth Doctor Chronicles. Dudman himself delivers yet another fine performance as the Tenth Doctor and narrator of the set; what he lacks in a dead-on impression, he more than makes up for with a matching energy and physicality in his performance, that’s an asset to the story in so many ways. Joining Dudman is an old friend and fellow impressionist, Jon Culshaw, who provides the story with an excellent performance as Nathan Hobb, head of The Outcome. Matthew J Elliott takes his first stab at the New Series for Big Finish, and comes out on top, with a strong, adventurous story that fits into the “base under siege” style of storytelling. His dialogue and subtle humor is snappy throughout the story, and the plot of his story is a smart, engaging one that really makes the most out of it’s interesting concept. While the Chronicles box sets have surely not been without controversy, Dudman’s earnest and eager performance, combined with some smart writing, as really done strong work in justifying the set’s existence, and making for an interesting, engaging story, overall.
