One of the best and most definitive Big Finish audio stories ever made with elements for fans of all eras of Doctor Who (Classic, New and audio) to enjoy!

A wonderfully creative and bizarre story with evil puppets trying to take over the world? In the wrong hands, this could've been disastrous.....but it's done wonderfully. Katy Manning has always been a fantastic actress, but she completely outdoes herself here and sells the story and most of the characters. Worth multiple listens just for how bonkers it gets. I would give it out 10/10 if not for the songs being stuck in my head for DAYS afterwards....but so worth it!

Better than "Hunters of Earth", but not as good as "Shadow of Death". A very solid Third Doctor for the most part. Richard Franklin does a good job for the most part, particularly at imitating Jon Pertwee's voice as the Third Doctor. There is a lot of atmosphere surrounding the setting in Scotland and the local ports and towns surrounding the area which really adds to the great moments in the story surrounding perception barriers and the stones themselves. I think the Stones of Scotland are very interesting but the idea of "stone power" that the Silurian-like aliens use is a little bit lame in my honest opinion and I don't have much sympathy for the aliens in general. The arc to the "Destiny of theDoctor" storyline is present and much more apparent here then in the other two stories, but still very interesting and will be very curious to see where it all adds up to by The Eleventh Doctor's "The Time Machine" in November. Again, there is a very funny cameo in this story which made me laugh out loud in relation to the arc and you should be able to see what it's shaping up to pretty easily. In summary, a good story and well worth a listen particularly for the arc references but as well as for a decent Third Doctor/UNIT story. On to the 4th Doctor, Romanna II, and "Babblesphere"!

Definitely an interesting story and a good outing for Sylvester McCoy against the Daleks though not without it's faults. There are some fantastic ideas here though some that have been used multiple times in other stories ("Silence in the Library"/"Asylum of the Daleks" combination anyone?), but it ends up just being kind of average even with the Daleks involved. Some of the voices are hard to tell apart sometimes (particularly Ace and Bev) and it gets really grating at times. Worth at least one listen, but wouldn't bother with multiple times afterwards though I am curious to see where this Dalek Empire arc goes with "The Apocalypse Element".
