This is a great story that mixes space opera with time travel for a very pleasing tale that takes the Seventh Doctor across the galaxy as he deals with the consequences of the Sixth Doctor's reprogramming of the Wrath.

I love the concept of a giant space-going snail who travels the stars. It's incredibly and very well-realized. The story maintains a great air of mystery that allows Sylvester McCoy to play the Chess Master though with a bit of humor that works well for this Doctor.

The characters are very well-written. The tale introduces Vienna Salvatore, but there's very little here to suggest her as a spin-off characters. She's a clear villaine and even shows cowardice. The character would come off better in her relaunch. In this story, she's just a fun villain.

Overall, this is a great conclusion to this multi-doctor trilogy.

The Doomwood Curs is a story akin to The Mind Robber as it takes a historical fiction and mixes it into a real story while creating other fictional characters into reality and changing the Doctor and Charley into the fiction. Now this plan happens because the Doctor goes to return a library book where he finds the Grel an aquatic alien race from the Bernice Summerfield series in stories also written by Jacqueline Rayner in one of her last written stories outside adapting some New Adventures Novels.

The highlight of this release and indeed the other stories written by Rayner is the relationship between the Doctor and his companion. Even though the Doctor doesn't really trust Charley completely yet he still doesn't want to see her get hurt as she becomes fiction as the sidekick to famed highwayman Dick Turpin. And India Fisher gets some great stuff to sink her teeth into as she basically plays three characters, normal Charley, lovesick Charley and Gypsy Charlotte (Turpin's sidekick).

My biggest problem with this story is that it has a lot of pacing problems and there is no tension as the Doctor is killed but comes back from the dead because everything has turned into fiction.

The Condemned is a story that picks up from the cliffhanger at the end of The Girl Who Never Was, seeing Charlotte Pollard being rescued by the Sixth Doctor who is in a bit of a mood because he has just lost Evelyn and is still grieving. India Fisher and Colin Baker are a match made in heaven as they both work really well off of each other, even though their characters don't really trust each other. Charley is someone who is terrible at keeping the secret that she knows about the TARDIS and the Doctor, and the Sixth Doctor calls her out on all the little of anachronisms that she points out and I honestly think he's already guessed who she is.

Eddie Robson does his best at allowing the two characters to grow together over the course of the story as Charley gets herself kidnapped and the Doctor is arrested for murder. Yes this story is a murder mystery straight out of Agatha Christe with our own detective in DI Menzies who is a great character throughout the story as she has the wool pulled from her eyes on how aliens are real, but doesn't let it bother her because Life Moves On. The best bits of this story is the conclusion as it turns into a story Rob Shearman would write which is always a plus once the first twist about the murder is revealed. Honestly you should listen to this as to say anything else would be a horrible spoiler.

The Bride of Peladon is a story that sees the departure of Erimem in true eighties fashion as she leaves to become advisor to the new king of Peladon and gets married to him. Yeah it's pretty much a straight parallel to one of Peri's possible exits from the series which really ruins much of the story. It would be fine if she just stayed to become advisor, but because of the very few scenes she has with the Prince, the relationship isn't nearly developed enough to be called complete. Oh and the story is basically a rehash of The Curse of Peladon and The Monster of Peladon, but writer Barnaby Edwards does change some stuff around enough to be it's own original story.
