Steve Lyons is a great writer and has produced yet again with an alien bank robbery. Fantastic

This is so close to sounding like a full cast adventure from the main range, it's breathtaking. My favourite Big Finish story to date, both perfectly capturing the era it is from whilst being an original story for this crew. If you ever wished for a Big Finish Main Range Troughton adventure, this is practically that. Encore! Encore!

Quite a simple little tale here -which isnt such a bad thing. I think being a big fan of Steve Lyons though i always think his work is going to be brilliant so when he does something that is still good i feel a tad disappointed. Regardless this is a v enjoyable listening and Frazer Hines impersonations of the 2nd Doctor and Ben are quite incredible. More with the crew and more with the Selachians please!
