I haven't heard this story, but I'm very grateful to you for bringing it to my attention, and it certainly sounds awesome from your review!

It's definitely worth obtaining from Big Finish. There are a few sentences in the review which I'm not happy with - while Newman would have disliked the BEMness of the Mim, he might have been convinced by the argument that they are creatures of adaptable nerve tissue, always cutting back and regenerating into new shapes depending on circumstance. I wish I'd been able to work in a cross-reference to the In Our Time on the Library, downloadable from the Radio 4 website, and to Ian's experience of oyster shells which anticipates Hypatia's own (post-story) fate.
