Kinsella, Gilmore, Jenson and Williams, once again grace our eardrums. The Light are the sole crusade of Kinsella, to rid the earth of them once and for all, he has engineered a way of getting rid of them once and for all, at least enough to make a decided dent in their attempts to over throw and rule the earth. However, whilst implementing his plan of extraction he encounters two slight anomalies, one an old chum from his university days, whom just happens to be a Middle Eastern Prince, and the other an assassin, who in the confusion of carnage of the Light’s execution at the opera, Kinsella is hunted down by an killer, and we hear him shot and fall to his death in the river. Is this the end, who is the Prince, and our three counter measure members are about to get all mixed up again in a battle for the safety of us all. Oh wow, it was so good to hear that Big Finish bought back Counter Measures and this introductory to the New Counter Measures is both rewarding and excellent, I love the old team back in their stride, but I especially love the overall feel of this release, it gives nostalgia a wonderful injection of pace, whilst being fresh and exciting and new this is also a massive slab of that 60’s quirky spy thriller genre with just a twist of the science fiction that I have come to love in this series from Big Finish, simply top stuff.

Great acting, great story and a great release, only let down only by really awful incidental music that just never seems to stop. I'm not keen on the discordant new arrangement of the theme music either.

Clean sweep is literally that, the broom is being sweep, and it looks like the end, the, illuminate of alien masters is hot on the trails of the Counter Measures team who at each stage of the story try and keep one step ahead of them, Kinsella in this is most certainly the puppet master of the whole affair, who, with his crafty wheeling and dealing is trying to bring the outcome to a satisfactory conclusion, however, you get the feeling that this could be at the expense of his team, it is almost, anything as long as he survives goes. The opposition are using everything at there disposal to track the team who take up temporary hostelry in Oxford, after all, where would you last look at finding a Cambridge university professor or graduate that the city of spires. The pace is thick and fast through out and the story slowly starts to build, to a conclusion that you just thought was not going to happen. But does it......

We are left with a confused Kinsella, who seemingly as no knowledge of his team, his past, or his part in any of this, what and ending, somewhat left me asking the question of No, surely not, we must have more. But it look like Big Finish might have just quit whilst they where ahead. Time will tell.
