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.

It starts to unwrap now like a Terry's chocolate orange, and Kinsella and his team have certainly tapped and unwrapped. It becomes apparent that those who are in power are not actually working for the government or the greater good, well at least not for the Earth, and that they are actually from a much higher power, put here to disrupt and cause the co-hension to stop in order to establish there own agenda, with their failing grip and ability to operate being punched by the team, it is apparent a sorehead earth policy is starting to emerge. Ironically however, one of the leading plants in the government, wants to remain, even at the cost of double crossing his own. Kinsella is happy to oblige playing the long game, hoping that by using him for his means he will get what he needs and finally they will rid themselves of the overmasters. However, there is a sting in the tale for both the team and it will come unraveled if they are not careful. For me this really setup and bridged the gap at the same time for the whole process, the main thing I took from this was that Counter Measures is looking like it is going to throw the last dice, but will they be able to depart on their own terms, there are lot of power players in the game, and Kinsella guile and ability to duck and dive I feel is starting to run out. Alison and Rachel are also aware of this and it starting to sound like that it isn't going to be long before all of the world that they have created is destroyed. What will happen in the final instalment Clean Sweep....

he real Kinsella and Gilmore now are ensconced in the super jail The Keep. They realise that something is not quite as it should be so they create a plan of escape out of there, which includes, undoing some of Toby shall we say less auspicious methods of detention for some of the inmates, utilising there almost super human abilities to avail their escape. I have to say there was a definite feel of the X-Men in this episode or a mash up of the X-files meets Fringe meets Marvel, it all had that wonderful feel of starting to lay down the actual story as it started to unfold. At the end of the last episode it becomes apparent that Rachel and Alison have worked out that their reality is not all it seems and that they are being used in a bigger plan almost as pawns to the greater plan, for which we still are teetering very close to finding out what is actually going on. However the girls come good and the ending of this is a tease to what is actually going off on the bigger stage here, the story is starting to manifest itself into something a lot bigger than we have come to expect. It would appear that whom ever the others are they are well organised and are up to no good, and now that the team are effectively back together then we are in for two final episodes to explain what actually all this mind control is about. More over who is actually in control.

We start this new and possible last outing with the team, as they are thrust into the building of a new super transportation system for London, which uses some very revolutionary and what seems alien technology to make it work. Things go horribly wrong after an explosion and the Counter Measures team are sent into investigate what is going on. What makes it more strange is that, Toby and Gilmore are not seemingly themselves, or at least they aren't to us the listener. The story however starts to lay the groundwork for what really is going on, and I would strongly advise that you are up to speed from the last box set which saw our intrepid team escape from East Berlin, after some various mind experiments had been underway. You soon realise that Alison is certainly not herself and neither is Rachel, the whole thing for me starts the intrigue mode to go into over drive, just wanting to find out what exactly is going on, and had me literally screaming that isn't Toby, that isn't Gilmore come on girls get a grip. The story is expertly told, produced and written, and certainly kicks off the intrigue into what or whom are behind this shift in reality. Is it the Government, is it Kinsella, is it some much more powerful force in play. Exciting episode and some wonderful sound scares that just seem to wash over your senses.
