Scaredy Cat was the seventy-fifth story in Big Finish's monthly range. It was written by Will Shindler and featured Paul McGann as the Eighth Doctor, India Fisher as Charlotte Pollard and Conrad Westmaas as C'rizz.
Publisher's summary[edit | edit source]
It means literally "the soul of the vengeful" — those whose lives have been cut short early and died with empty hearts.
But what secrets does the planet hold? There are laws even the Doctor won't break...
And while C'rizz learns that some tragedies can't be averted, Charley must decide who the enemy actually is.
For death walks on Endarra, and this time she won't be denied...
