How to Win Planets and Influence People (7.06)

Big Finish - Short Trips Season 7

This story is told using a futuristic powerpoint presentation as the Meddling Monk attempts to sell customers on his system to “win planets and influence people.” This is fantastic! I loved the way it’s done, with him digressing into this time and that time the Doctor defeated his plans. The 4th Doctor is barely included here, with Sara Jane and Harry showing up just as much as he does, if not more. And it ends with the Monk wimpering, which is just great, too. This one I cannot recommend highly enough!
