In Catch-1782, the Sixth Doctor takes Mel to visit her scientist uncle, and then has to rescue her from a timewarp in which she risks being married off to one of her own ancestors. The plot is not very original, but Bonnie Langford is terrific as Mel in this - clearly Big Finish allowed her to find depths in the character that were impossible on TV.

The Sixth Doctor and Mel attend the centenary celebrations for the National Foundation for Scientific Research. Looking into her family history and thanks to a temporal accident, Mel discovers that finding out the answers to a mystery within it may entail becoming part of history itself.

I really enjoyed this. Mel was definitely at her best. There was no screeching or drama. It was a nice spooky time travel historical story. There was no real bad guys, no aliens, just interesting characters and a bit of a mystery.
