Amy Beth Hayes does a fine job playing Yrsa Kristjansdottir, an Icelandic police inspector investigating missing persons. She is a real world character discovering the world is bigger than she'd ever thought. She makes a great main character and her story is well told and engaging.

Being told at the same time is the Doctor's adventure, which is a little less interesting and actually distracts from the investigation going on. His discoveries tended to undermine Yrsa's which was a shame.

This was an interesting series, in that most of the episodes were introducing the characters and scenes that the Master was overseeing. We get good drama and good character development, but with very little involvement from the titular character. I felt a little cheated, but it all works.

The Master is not someone who is involved in everything. More often he is setting things up and waiting for the right moment. This story is more about the people who are affected by his decisions: his pawns and his enemies.

There has been a lot to get through, but the payoff has been worth it.

The plot is fairly average, but the story as an audio is technically brilliant.

Ingrid Oliver plays Osgood and Osgood at the same time, but then Zygon Osgood becomes Jacqui McGee allowing Tracy Wiles to play two parts at the same time. This type of shenanigans is exactly what could have been done many times if any writer wanted to use the zygons for comedy.

In order to facilitate this story telling, the villain is using a dating app to find victims. This rather bland plot is good because it allows the mayhem of juxtaposition to take centre stage.

The other stories in this set were all very bland examples of their base story, but Sarah Grochala makes the effort to give us a more complex story. This is quite a good debut story for a writer in audio. She has used the medium well and will no doubt do so again.

Gangsters from another planet are hunting down a witness, currently in witness protection on earth, so the gangsters take the place of existing gangsters on earth to hunt down their target.

Into the mix comes the Doctor and a police officer, both investigating from different perspectives until they start working together.

It is no more complicated than that. The Sinestran Kill is good, but not spectacular.
