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...

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.
It's a bit like Hitchhiker's Guide, but without the satire. I liked Matt Fitton's other work, but Charlotte Pollard just didn't do it for me -- I'm not really sure why. The presentation and sound effects are very Hitchhiker-esque, and the plot ideas equally silly. The difference, I guess, is that Douglas Adams used the silliness to satirize the human condition, while here it's just, well, silly.
