The Auton Infinity by Tim Foley
Snowdonia. UNIT is running a training exercise with the Brigadier in attendance. Except it isn’t long before things start to go badly wrong. The fake aliens primed to attack the troops might not be so fake after all, and a temporal disturbance attracts the Doctor, Tegan and Turlough into the fray.

Old enemies are on the scene with a deadly plan - but they might be the least of the Doctor’s worries.

Because he’s recently been sent backwards and forwards through his own lifetime… and he’s finally going to find out why.

Forty proves a fond portrait of one of the finest Doctors of them all... a perfect portrait of an incarnation who feels more bound by the rules than most. And it’s a timely reminder why Peter Davison is one of the finest actors to helm the good ship TARDIS, and the Fifth Doctor so loved. So, let’s doff our panamas in salute to a legend. Anyone for forty more?

Blogtor Who

...Peter Davison impresses in his portrayal of the Fifth Doctor’s more vulnerable sides. The story is perhaps a touch overlong, and some of the side characters seem superfluous, but all in all this is a strong release. Recommended. 4/5

Who Review

(Tim) Foley along with director Ken Bentley bring everything together to make The Auton Infinity and with it Forty 2 an epic celebration... It makes it an engaging three hour listen and one of the many reasons why Big Finish Productions should be putting energy into longer stories where every character can shine and plots can develop complexity. It’s made Forty 2 one of the best. 10/10
