You sort of get the feeling now we are three episodes in that Big Finish are stretching their legs a little, and letting the writers really do their thing with the characters of the production. In the third instalment we are greeted with what I can only describe as much more grittier stuff, if that is actually possible. We have thrown aside the need for there to be the nicest ease of introduction we are now dealing with the hard cold realities of living in this world were basically everything as been lost, and what we took as the balance of life, and that safety net that we all completely take for granted as been stripped away. It actually is quite scary when you here this for yourself as the real life we all lead starts to seem so much better than we give credit for. Perhaps there is also a moral lesson that is extrinsically being danced before us here. That perhaps we should be grateful and that perhaps when we moan and groan about our lives that actually we have not got it that bad. We see a lot more character development here as well in the interactions, and we are also now getting the feeling that all things are not to be trusted, what we think is safe is actually not so, and that people will turn when faced with hunger, pain, fear and anxiety. It is a real human code breaker of an episiode. For me as well the stand out here was the way in which the world that is being portrayed is so real. This is the real scare and that we are all not that far away from descending into a broken down society, perhaps not due to a pandemic but at the mercy of the protractors in society who try and twist the world for their own gain. Once again really amazing stuff here

Judges opens with a pre-credit sequence that fans of the TV series have been waiting for: Greg, Jenny and Abby are back. In just a few sentences the relationships are clearly established and as the episode progresses it is simple to work out where in the first series this is set. The story has parallels with a number of the television episodes that look at how you police a community that has no law.

In my eyes, the strongest episodes of the TV series are those that look at how we would deal with death in a society that has just seen so much life lost. I thought that 'Exodus' touched on this in a hard fashion, but in 'Judges' shots are fired in anger, the body count continues to grow and not all of my favourite characters make it safely to the end credits - this is so very Terry Nation. Everybody is given a clear motive for behaving in the way that they do - Adrian Lukis plays a blinder as James Gillison. Once again, the listener is drained, but must know what happens next...
