I kid you not, I teared up a bit when I started to hear Lucie again. I would have been happy listening to Sheridan read the phonebook (do we still have these?) as Lucie, with an insult thrown in for good measure. But she didn't. She read a lovely, fun story that held my attention from beginning to end. I thought her Eighth Doctor voice was great, and I really believed her voice for old lady. The chemistry between Eight and Lucie was captured perfectly. It really made my day. I'm going to listen to it again tomorrow.
I don't usually listen to the Short Trip stories, but I decided to give this story a listen because, well, it's Lucie Bleedin' Miller. And I must say, this story was quite enjoyable. I'm not sure if I will continue to purchase Short Trip stories - I'm not all that interested in the style of this range, if I'm being honest - but for what it was, I felt like I got a really enjoyable experience from this release. I certainly hope we hear more from Sheridan Smith in the future!
