The Mistpuddle Murders

Location : United Kingdom, Lindseywood and the Lindsey Woods
Date : Unknown


The Mistpuddle Murders is, you guessed it, a murder mystery. A lot of tea drinking goes on with the background of a ticking mantle clock in the company of anthropomorphized woodland animals.

Sarah Sutton has a beautiful voice and her performance was most certainly the high point of this story for me. She does a surprisingly nice job of imitating Peter Davison in the very brief appearance of the Fifth Doctor. As lovely as her voice is I was pretty happy when this story was over and am thankful that it was a "short trip".

Every once in a while Big Finish knocks the ball out of the park with these little tales read by a cast member of the era. This is not one of those times. This episode seems in it's Alice in Wonderland like imagery to be one that may be best suited for younger listeners.

These short trips stories can be subscribed to in groups where you can buy 10 and get 2 free with a 12 month subscription (I am a subscriber) or you can pick them up by themselves as a $2.99 download. $2.99 was about right for this.

The author Simon A. Forward did give a location of Lindseywood UK and the Lindsey Woods just outside of Lindseywood. This is also one of the the main characters of the story, Lindsey Woods. However in a Sci-Fi series about time travel there does not appear to be any reference to a point in time. To overlook something so obvious tends to make me believe that the author might not even be familiar with Doctor Who.
