Recced because: It's absolutely beautiful and understated. The Forest of Cheem is described wonderfully and it's a subtle look at Nyssa's quiet grief for Traken.

There was a garden, just off the path and half hidden in the trees. A figure, cloaked in a robe of grass and moss, moved among the flowers.

Nyssa moved like a sleepwalker, hardly aware she was leaving the path and that the Doctor was calling after her. She sank to her knees beside the bank of flowers, staring at one in particular. The petals were white, edged with orange that made it look as if the flower was being eaten by flames.

“This is from Traken,” she said.
