The Early Adventures has been a revelation for Big Finish, aptly allowing period-evoking tales featuring the First and Second Doctors to come to life with dynamic performances and a touch of narration that creates the illusion of a reconstructed missing story soundtrack. ‘The Outliers’ captures that sentiment perfectly, bringing the Second Doctor, Polly, Ben, and Jamie to a flooded underground town on an alien …
