Investigations with the Sixth Doctor[]

Menzies meets the Sixth Doctor and Charley Pollard for the first time. Set 29 February 2008.
Set in 2008. Menzies asks to travel with the Doctor, who politely refuses her request and cites the growing mystery of Charley's identity as his reasoning.
Supposedly set in 2011, according to Evelyn in AUDIO: The Feast of Axos or in 2010 According to AUDIO: Tales from the Vault. However, Menzies meets the Sixth Doctor earlier in his timeline when he was travelling with Evelyn Smythe, and discovers that the Doctor already knew her when they first met, setting this before The Avenues of Possibility.
Set 19 July 2009. Menzies first met the Doctor the previous year. However Menzies mentions that she says glad to meet the Doctor in the right order for once, suggesting a post-Crimes of Thomas Brewster setting, even though from the Doctor and Charley's perspective this takes place before The Raincloud Man so they wouldn’t be meeting in the right order anyway.
