This is where the Seventh Doctor and Ace meeting Klein for the first time. In the most dangerous prison in Nazi Germany.

The Doctor and Ace landing in a castle, but didt realise where they landed and when they landed. They where captured by nazis and the place they are is Colditz Castle. And they are bullied by a colenell Feldwebel Kurtz who played by a guy so called David Tennant. Whom you known for playing The Tenth Doctor. Who is pretty good to play a villian instead then a hero. Abd then the Doctor meeting a charachter called Elizabeth Klein (Tracey Childs) who wants the Doctors TARDIS to go to her own future where the Germans hae won the war.

And Ace meets british soldiers who are trying to escape the most secured prison in Germany.


A typical Steve Lyons story placed in a tragic and darker periods of history.

Nazis thugs, mysterious time traveler from the future who want Germay to win. Ace Helping Soldiers escape. Good story try to listen. 7/10

carrying on from 'Cold Fury', 'Caged' ties up the series arcs and provides an action-packed finish. Blake meets the president of the Terran Federation and the end up discussing the pros and cons of freedom versus dictatorship, which is a potentially interesting philosophical debate but not done justice here. Servalan is notable for her absence from this series which is one of the few things they could have done better.

Betrayal, mind control, and cloning. It's pacey but not all action. This is a more nuanced story than the ones before it and manages to raise the bar despite effectively being a setup for the following installment in the range.

Great production values and acting. Travis is as sadistic and sinister as he is always is at his best. It's nice that Villa is given more to do in this. The liberator crew are still coming to terms with Gan's death which creates tension amongst the regular characters. It's nice that there is a connection with the events of the TV series rather than just fitting in between what we see happen on the screen.

A very strong Dalek story that finds the Daleks trapping the Doctor's TARDIS in a time corridor because they need the Doctor.

The story works because the mystery behind the Daleks' mechinations and motives is very well-crafted. The characterization of Nyssa and the Fifth Doctor is also tweaked a bit in this story and I think it works quite well, and the result is Nyssa being more assertive but not at the Tegan-like level she was in her previous story. A very solid early Big Finish release.

What happened to the events beteen the episodes "planet of fire" and "the caves of androzani" well the awnser is he here. This is your chance to hear Peter Davison and Nicola Bryant together. And this audio drama introduce you to Erimem, a egyptian queen that never was played by Caroline Morris .

The Doctor and Peri have some problem with the tardis so they eccidentally landing on acient Egypt. And rescuing a queen called Erimem from some thugs. But the problem is this queen Erimem was never a queen of Egypt, The Doctor have never heard of a queen Erimem. And there is a consparicy going on to destroy the queen.

This story have some mysteries and I love that sort of story, and combining with Egyptian mythologie, and intorducing a new charachter and companion in big finish after Evelyn Smythe and Charley Pollard, Erimem is a defined and awesome charachter to explore and she remind me of Leela, a bit of a savage plus with royal blood. And Erimem ads perfectly with the Fifth doctor and Peri.

Overall a good story of acient Egypt, the mysteries and consparies and o good intro for a new companion for the fifth doctor.

Awesome 8/10

The Death Collectors introduces the Dar traders, an alien race who exists near the point of death and who literally trade in death. Overall, they're one of the more interesting species introduced in Big Finish as while they are scary and can be a bit dangerous if they're caught at the wrong time, they're not evil and also possess a great deal of wisdom.

The plot his a solid mystery at the core and the three part format serves the story well as the story moves along at a very good clip. At the same time, the story has some thought provoking moments as it explores ethics and what should be done to prevent death. Katherine Parkinson turns in a good performance as Danika and the surprise ending after the Doctor leaves is a nice twist.

The finale of Series 4 begins as a crazy romp as Iris and Panda head to a big recording studio when they hear an ear worm jingle they can't get out of their head. Who's behind it? A fanatical homicidal lift (elevator my fellow Americans and I) with delusions of grandeur and hero worship. Their only a music promoter targeting tween stars who is quite literally tone deaf. The story works right up until then when it ends as seriously as a heart attack with Iris wallowing in self-hatred. It's a very quick change of tone that's a bit stunning and hard to wrap your head around. On the other, it does answer questions as to why future Iris did at the end of the previous series finale and the story is enjoyable for it's zanier moments.

Interesting concept by creating a prequel to supplement the established first episode of Who, and explore what happened before, and in some respects up-to the point in which Susan arrives as a student at the Coal Hill School. There is a gentleness about this story, nothing too horrific happens apart from a wonderfully articulate storyline that gets painted by Carole-Ann in only the way she can, playing the part of Susan, the granddaughter of the Doctor. We get to listen to the Doctor and Susan making their escape from Gallifrey, we get an insight into the reasons why the Doctor needs to leave, but moreover we also get to learn that a realisation at this time, is that they are going never to return. Never again will they see their home. The story as the fabulous Terry Molloy in here as well, he plays a sort of jobs worth, Gallifrian Tardis tech. The story is gone in a flash, with just over 1 hour of adventure for the listener, but, you know what that is just enough time for us to get the feel of this, and as ever it comes out trumps in both is narration and acting, as a quaint little prequel Doctor Who gem. Worth a listen.
