This is a one off adventure making up one part of The Company of Friends anthology. It does not fit in with a timeline related to the rest of the anthology and apparently fits into the 8th Doctor's timeline after all the Big Finish Main Range audios before the Eighth Doctor Adventures Series 1.

This is the adventure introducing Fitz and the character of Fitz is not particularly interesting or well presented. The overall adventure is, in my opinion, not very good at all by Doctor Who standards. I found it pretty badly acted in places, quite annoying and silly at times with a very uninspired plot.

Pretty disappointing.

Overall: 5/10

Fitz is delightful and it makes me wish for more audio stories with him. Solid writing. Funny. McGann delights as the Doctor.

Fitz's Story: This has a similar tone to, 'Cuddlesome' or, 'Ratings War', a couple of the free stories available from Big Finish. It's an amusing and creative short story about an Alien Defence Corporation based on the planet Entusso that has stolen the Doctor's likeness to endorse the service that they offer, defending against Extra-terrestrials basically. They then broadcast the advert to lure the Doctor to them so they can offer him a consultancy job. This is the only time Fitz has been performed and Stephen Cole does a wonderful job as the stuck up stoke broker. It's well paced and was a really enjoyable short story though, I just wish it had been allowed a longer duration as this is the only performance of Fitz.

Coming to this story as someone who hasn't read the Eighth Doctor novels, I found this very accessible. Fitz's is a fantastic character who has a dynamic with the Eighth Doctor we haven't heard before. The story is funny and has a couple nice twists in this plot. It left me wanting more Fitz and thinking about seeking out the novels that feature him.
