Lost and Found (6.6)

Big Finish - Short Trips Season 6

This story is a fun one, where Polly goes back to a time at a department store, just after WWII, where she lost her favorite teddy bear. A teddy bear she never named so she wouldn’t feel sad that she lost it, but of course she did. And man, Ben is a massive annoyance in this story, like an older brother who just picks on you for ages for no reason. The more important something is to her, the more he pokes fun. Punk. And that’s the nice version…

So it comes down to the Doctor interceding on behalf of some incorporeal aliens inhabiting things on Earth to run away from some other incorporeal aliens looking to bring them home. And this time they don’t appear to actually be villains either way. At least that is what it turns out to be half the time! And it all focuses on the lost and found at the department store. It’s a fun story with Polly times two and Ben the slacker, rude to everyone. I’m glad he comes around because I really started to dislike him thoroughly in this story…
