Charlotte Pollard's adventures are over. She escaped death aboard the R101 and travelled in time and space - but now in the service of the monolithic, unknowable Viyrans, their unending mission is stifling her.
An encounter with would-be adventurer Robert Buchan near the mysterious Ever-and-Ever-Prolixity provides the opportunity Charley needs for escape.... So the adventuress is abroad once more, meeting a lost expedition in uncharted forests, solving enigmas and hoping beyond hope to see the people she misses most: her family. But Charley cannot run forever.
The Viyrans know the power of the Lamentation Cipher, and they have a solution...for everything.
Written by Jonathan Barnes and Matt Fitton. Directed by Nicholas Briggs.

"Showcases Big Finish's talent for space opera...." (Paul Simpson, SFB)
There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
Charlie Pollard is back and as amazing as ever. This is an absolutely brilliant spinoff from her time as the companion to two of The Doctors. The cast is fantastic, the scripts are intriguing and the sound design is brilliant as always. Big Finish did a great job all around. Can't wait for series 2.
"Thank you, Big Finish, for bringing back Charley!"
Disclosure: I am an American new to listening to Big Finish productions. I was not aware that Charlotte Pollard was a companion to the Doctor until it was eluded to in the story. This story arch is so good it is able to stand alone without the listener needing to know Chatlotte's back story and, equally important, without being didactic.
India Fisher is truly engaging as Charlotte Pollard. I love that she can have brilliant adventures without the doctor (still love you Doctor!). The Who-niverse is so big and wonderful I look forward to going on more adventures with Charley, and all the other amazing characters that are sure to accompany her. Excellent sci-fi adventuring. Big Finish, keep up the good work!
Now off to find all the episodes where Charlotte was the companion...
