The Trouble with Drax brings back the character of Drax from the Armageddon Factor and the Doctor finds himself press ganged into his latest scheme-a caper to steal something called "The Enigma Casket," from a legendary place that is only rumored to exist.

The story starts out looking like a fairly straightforward tale but quickly becomes a quite complicated (though not convoluted) plot involving a Blinovitch Limitation Effect Limiter. The script by John Dorney is brilliant as he perfectly captures the spirit of Season 17, and the guest cast is one of the best Big Finish has assembled. Easily, a highlight of the season.

The Fourth Doctor and Romana land thirteen years too early for an exposition and end up going to a wax museum where the Doctor is accused of stealing a sculpture of the head of Marie Antoinette. But something far more sinister is afoot.

Overall, this is a bit of a mixed story. There was some genuinely funny moments mixed with some where the jokes felt very strained. At the same time, there are many plot points where the contrivances are just a bit too obvious. Still, a fair entry in the Fourth Doctor Adventures even if it's the weakest of the current series.

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

I do understand why so many people hate that story, but for me it works perfectly. Nice nostalgia, good fanservice. Strong piece of drama on Krelos and very unusual use of the Multi-Doctor story format on Telos. And beautiful sound design too. I highly recommend 'The Fate of Krelos' and 'Return to Telos' as this is two very challenging and different audio by Nicholas Briggs.
