Mutually Assured Destruction (Time Lord Victorious).

A base under siege story which flips the paradigm and has a ship full of Daleks defending themselves from the Doctor. The Daleks even have someone who's co-operating with the enemy. Other than as a sequel to the previous story this doesn't really move the Time Lord Victorious storyline on much, but it's a compulsive listen largely because Paul McGann sounds like he's having such tremendous fun, especially during a zero gravity scene were he's playfully taunting one of the pepperpots. Lizzie Hopley previous played Gemma, one of Eighth's earliest audio companions and she captures his voice perfectly (she also wrote the terrific Precious Annihilation for the Tenth Doctor and River Song box).  Are we supposed to interpret that the Eighth Doctor has yet another companion by the end?
