I think that although it may not be the best of the Destiny of the Doctor series, this story is still alright. Of course, not all of the cast from the original series are reprising there roles so, naturally, they're not going to be the same as the original cast members. The plot is decent. Not brilliant but not bad and the reason why I say not brilliant is because at times it can be hard to understand. At the start, the story is at its best and slips down a bit throughout until the end. The sound does vary though so you may find yourself constantly changing the volume. But overall, it's a decent story.

The Third Chapter of the Destiny of the Doctor series is set between Season 7 and Season 8 of the Classic Series and tells how Mike Yates ended up joining UNIT as they face a newly awakened alien threat. The story is well-read by Richard Franklin, but is a bit dry, being heavy on technonbabble, light on emotional engagement and originality. The story isn't bad but there's nothing that makes this tale a stand-out.

Vengeance of the Stones is an odd story in that it sort of makes itself a combination of three other stories much like Shadow of Death did. Instead here it's The Hand of Fear, The Stones of Blood and The Hungry Earth/Cold Blood, but unlike Shadow of Death adding in a lot of elements to make it feel like a homage Vengeance of the Stones leans a bit more towards the rip-off side of things but not enough to make the story unforgivable as there are some original elements here Richard Franklin does a good job of recreating all of the characters except for the Third and Eleventh Doctor voices of Franklin sound like Franklin is holding himself back but much like the way Frazer Hines imitates Patrick Troughton, Richard Franklin does a great Nicholas Courtney. All in all the story is just an OK story, but nothing particularly ground breaking.
