Along with The Peterloo Massacre this month is the Subscriber Short Trip "The Horror at Bletchington Station", featuring the First Doctor and Dodo a few adventures after dropping Steven off in The Savages.
I was hoping, obliquely, that this might be the incident referred to in The Yes Men, but it's not, though mention is made of other adventures in between The Savages and The War Machines, so there's still plenty of room for Big Finish to do that particular story in the future.
It's an interesting little tale. We get some hints of, not necessarily character development, but more both The Doctor and Dodo being aware of their own character development. Dodo is sort of okay with it, and The Doctor is just sort of annoyed, as he's in a situation where, if it were still just him and Susan, he would have just up and left, but he now has a bit of a conscience, which kind of pisses him off, even as he goes out to deal with the issues of the day.
Critchlow captures The Doctor and Dodo well enough, while making the rest of the characters distinct, and the sound design overall is fairly decent.
Overall, a good listen if you're a subscriber and have access to it.
All rather typical and run-of-the-mill but it certainly has bits which shine brighter than the whole, namely the Doctor being mad that he's become a better person (which is almost a comic take on the famous Massacre monologue) and the fact that the Time Lords are involved in a First Doctor story.
