Missy… alone, unleashed and unfettered. What does she get up to when the Doctor isn’t around?
Now she has what she wants, Missy needs someone to show off to. But her temporal mischief attracts the wrong kind of attention.
Infuriating children, a vacationing Sontaran and her own worst
intentions will get in her way. And a Meddling Monk, out for revenge...
2.1 The Lumiat by Lisa McMullin
Missy is glorying in the chaos, hoping that a certain someone might turn up.
What she doesn’t expect is an entirely different do-gooder spoiling her plans and teaching her life lessons.
Because, whoever she is, the Lumiat knows far more about Missy than anyone should...
2.2 Brimstone and Terror by Roy Gill
Missy wants an army, a brigade of willing youngsters, trained to serve. So she takes a teaching post at a remote Scottish boarding school.
But one of these boys knows Missy of old. And when Oliver Davis summons his sister for help, Lucy brings an ally from London. One Mr Strax...
2.3 Treason and Plot by Gemma Arrowsmith
The Gunpowder Plot. It’s a favourite of time travellers. If Missy’s going to hitch a ride, that’s the place to cause trouble. Especially if trouble makes a really big bang.
The only person in her way, trying to keep history on track, is a rookie Time Agent. But Rita Cooper wanted excitement...
2.4 Too Many Masters by John Dorney
The Monk has captured Missy. And he will have his revenge...
But the Ogrons are also looking to settle an old debt. And when they call it in, they find themselves with too many Time Lords on their hands.

And so, to round up for today; there's just time to mention that the new 'home studio' is near to completion and has already been used on several productions, including a full length audio book and a multi-character audio drama, which is both gratifying and a great relief!
In a few weeks time, I'll begin the 'home recording' of three different series of audio books, projects which carry on into late spring 2021.
