This is an adaptation of one of the few episodes to actually be preserved from the Avengers' lost season. While I've never seen the TV version, Big Finish's take on the story is a very good one.

The titular Frighteners, a group of thugs who blackmail "patients" (i.e. victims) with severe beatings if they don't perform a desired action that their clients want are genuinely creepy and menacing with their euphemistic language.

At the same time, this is a fairly complicated problem for Keel and Steed compared to the others they've faced because they not only have to deal with the Frighteners, they also have to deal with their victim, who has his own agenda for wanting to marry a wealthy man's daughter. Keel really shows how much he's grown since he first appeared, easily taking the lead both physically and in planning.

With a guest appearance by Hugh Ross, this is an extremely enjoyable episode and easily close to the top of the episodes released so far.

A decent enough story centered around Polly's missing stuffed bear. The story was acceptable, but not really memorable, but still some fun moments with the Doctor talking to a tin of baked beans in post-war London. This one is hurt a bit by flubbing continuity with them referencing the Doctor "inviting" Ben and Polly on the TARDIS when they actually accidentally stowed away.

Another month as come and gone, and here we are with another brand new 4th Doctor adventure. We have the pairing of the No.4 with Lalla incarnation of Romana. We also have the welcome return of Cuthbert and his unscrupulous business dealing as the Conglomerate, he is trying to double deal his way to making money, however at the expense of some rather unsuspecting workers from the industrial revolution, what is more he is fuelling his time travel by the enslavement under contract of course of the Laan. Will Cuthbert stop at nothing for his own ends, it appears not. The separation element of the story is concentrated with Romana dealing with Cuthberts henchman Mr Dorrick played wonderfully by Toby Hadoke, nice to hear Toby again in a Who adventure. Whilst Romana is battling the unhand misdoing's of Cuthbert's and his Conglomerate. The Doctor is dealing with Cuthbert directly who is proving to be as every bit evasive as he has always been. Baker is best is the rally cry I hear when ever I settle down to a 4th Doctor release, and it is true, it captures the essence of my growing up as a child and he was my Doctor after all. My only criticism of Big Finish's releases in this range, is that for me they are not long enough at just over 1 hour running time, sure you get loads of extra's but I would like more story and less extras please

The Conclusion of the Sixth Doctor and Jamie trilogy and, at the same time, a sequel of sorts to the Mind Robber that sees the Doctor returning to the lanItd of Fiction to fight an invasion of the Cyberman. It's a story that takes advantage of the audio medium's power to tap into imagination to give us such ideas as a Cyber Converted Moby Dick attacking the Hispanola (from Treasure Island) only to be challenged by the Nautilus. Such epic battles and moments occur frequently in a tale in which Dracula, Captain Nemo, Alice Little, and the Artful Dodger all play a part.

The story has a sense of humor and offers many almost surreal moments such as when Jamie finds himself recording an audiobook. At the same time, it manages to subtly hit some softer emotional notes particularly regarding the Doctor's parting from Jamie and Zoe in the, "War Games" which gives the proceeding a greater amount of emotional depth than you'd expect.
