'''''{{#sub:{{PAGENAME}}|0|-13}}''''' was a [[2007]] [[Big Finish]] full-cast audio short story, featuring the [[fifth Doctor]] and [[Nyssa]]. It featured the Doctor meeting another [[Time Lord]] who had "gone native" on an unnamed world inhabited by an avian species. It was perhaps most notable for its theme, which had to do with how to construct a valid system of jurisprudence.

As with all fifth Doctor/Nyssa stories, this one broadly occurs between [[DW]]: ''[[Time-Flight]]'' and ''[[Arc of Infinity (TV story)|Arc of Infinity]]''. More specific placement is fairly arbitrary. Following the internal logic of the naming conventions of the stories on ''[[Circular Time]]'', however, it must be relatively early in the Doctor's solo travels with Nyssa. Thus, a placement soon after [[DW]]: ''[[Time-Flight]]'' seems reasonable. Some have suggested that placement after [[BFA]]: ''[[The Game]]'' makes sense, as well.
