Series 12 takes the Thirteenth Doctor and companions back in time to the Villa Diodati and a meeting with Mary Shelley, Lord Byron and Percy Shelley. As a Big Finish fan, my main concern is how it fits (or not) with the superb Jonathan Morris Mary’s Story.
We didn’t get enough Mary Shelley at Big Finish but we could see a direction of travel. Jonathan Morris wove the Doctor, Frankenstein and history together to make one of the strongest half-hour stories Big Finish has ever released.
I’d like a nod to continuity, a hand wave to the Time War as an explanation. I expect we’ll get nothing. It seems to me the continuity (there is no canon) works downstream – Big Finish fit in with the BBC who do what they want.
We shall see. I’m still expecting a decent story as there is clearly lots of potential.
