A new alien-fighter emerges who seems to be just as good as Sarah Jane. And that might be a good thing because Sarah Jane's memory, reflexes, and focus appear to be shot. Is it time for Sarah Jane to give up her work once and for all?

This is a very strong series finale. It features one of the best and most malevolent villains the series had ever featured. This villain isn't one goes so over the top in being evil that it's funny. This villain is genuinely frightening.

The regular cast is firing on all cylinders, turning in some absolutely superb moments. At the same time, the series features some recurring characters who return in the nick of time to help save the day.

Overall, this is just a superb example of how great this show could be.

It’s been some time since the TV episode as Jenny is on another stolen spaceship (following the family habit) and she gets into a fender bender with another ship, and finds herself in the midst of a space con, even while someone very dangerous is hunting her down.

This story was one of the most enjoyable stories I’ve heard from Matt Fitton. The guest characters are pretty good. Jenny’s de facto companion Noah is a bit of a blank slate given that he awakes without memory, but this story does a nice job of setting. Over the course of the hour, there’s a great sense of action and fun as Jenny tries to dodge the bad guys and save the day.

The tone of the first episode is great. Big Finish has a wide array of female-led series, yet they all have quite different fields to them. Georgia Tennant plays Jenny in a way that’s very different. She’s still quite new to the Universe, she’s filled with optimism, pluck, and big dreams. She’s not an all-purpose Mary Sue. However, she’s a believably quick study.

For a first episode, and a reintroduction of a character whose first appearance had mixed reviews, this was really quite marvelous.

A lovely story that finds three teenagers taking a pilgrimage to the shrine of sorrows, and only two will return as adults, the other will be condemned to live in the trees and the forest. Our heroine suspects she may be the one who will never return when the Doctor and Ace show up in the forest. Can the Doctor save her and her world?

This is a really good fantasy short story. It develops its ideas quite nicely and gives our main character a good journey and we get a solution that fits Doctor Who. Overall, an enjoyable subscriber extra.

The Doctor and Mel left a planet where the Doctor had brokered peace between human colonists and the mole-like indigenous species. The Doctor has a return to the planet on his bucket list and takes Ace and Mel with him 100 years later to find the planet consumed by Civil War and the metal he discovered Doctorium is to blame.

This story had some interesting ideas: The Doctor having to return to a planet where he thought everything had been settled and it had gone pear-shaped as well as the gist of the solution, although the mechanics of it are a bit convoluted. Listening to the extras, the story had gone through a lot of rewriting and been cobbled together. The result often struggles with coherency.

Characterization was off Sophia Allred said she tried to make Ace not slappable with the types of dialogue she's given and unfortunately she doesn't succeed. The story borrows heavily from the Tempest in terms of character names and quoting lines of dialogue, but it's not really clever borrowing, but feels kind of ham-fisted and random. Overall, a disappointing conclusion to a mediocre trilogy.
