A very interesting story about peace and the means to achieve it. You can tell why the story wasn't made on TV with the sequences such as the biplan one.
The actors were good, however I feel that Jo Grant sounds more and more like Iris Wildthyme, and it's not a matter of them having the same actress; you can tell by the intonations. I also found the Third Doctor in this to be much nicer to Jo than he ever was on TV, and that's a good point, because I always thought he was too harsh on her

Hexagora is a failure, albeit an intriguing one. While I may give some stories that play it safe higher ratings here, I think there is value in a work that tries something more ambitious and simply falls short.

Unfortunately while this story has some wild ideas, several of them do not seem to naturally sit well together. Why has this society styled themselves as Tudors? Precisely how did they come up with their crazy plan in the first place? And then there are the missed opportunities such as the Doctor's engagement which feels surprisingly incidental to the story.

Overall, I felt there was some promise here and while the piece didn't quite work for me as a whole, I think it at least didn't play things safe and that is to be admired.

The Lost Stories was a very hit and miss range. While stories were typically developed with the usual Big Finish polish, I rarely came away from them with any sense of loss. The Mega is one of the few cases where I did.

The story is perhaps not one that would have revolutionized the show. We have had seemingly benevolent aliens already in this era, most notably in The Claws of Axos, but this worked really well for me because of its strong themes and the wonderful way the story plays on the Doctor's nature as an outsider.

The performances are excellent and despite being six episodes long, this story never drags. I heartily recommend it.

Katy Manning is lovely as Jo and channels Pertwee well. Everyone else is pretty good. Fun story.
