Dr Who: The Wrong Doctors, released on CD and download from Big Finish. Here are the details:
With Evelyn gone, the Doctor sets course for his destiny... in the form of his first meeting with Miss Melanie Bush, a computer programmer from the village of Pease Pottage, currently busy rehearsing with the local Amateur Dramatic Society – and blissfully unaware that her future is on its way, in his TARDIS.
Make that two TARDISes. Because at that very moment, a slightly younger Doctor is flying into Pease Pottage, too – returning his future companion Melanie Bush to her rightful place and time, after they were flung together during the course of his Time Lord trial.
Time travel is a complicated business – the iguanadon terrorising Pease Pottage being a case in point. But how much more complicated could things possibly become, if the wrong Doctor were to bump into the wrong Mel?

Entirely predictable I know, but I'm going to say it anyway; this story was great fun to work on - cleverly written, with interesting characters and a really fabulous company of actors, including Bonnie Langford, who was professional down to her finger-tips, who worked at a cracking pace and who was very down to earth and good fun. By my reckoning, such a tally of attributes ticks a lot of boxes; she was and is fantastic in this and I was truly delighted to work with her.
