The Liberatory Crew are still searching for Dayna who has disappeared. They have received a lead to a man called Rankin, on the paradise planet Solace, he says Dayna was seen there recently, but has been abducted as has his wife and several other people.

Avon and Tarrant go down to the planet to investigate but Tarrant also goes missing. So Grant assists Avon in the search. A waxy substance is found at the site of Tarrant’s abduction and this leads them to…?

During their search for Dayna and now Tarrant, they discover a radical political group which has an extreme ecological focus. They visit a fruit preserving factory, an abandoned theatre, an old, creepy amusement park.

Yes, they discover the abducted people and uncover a very disturbing plot for how to deal with looming ecological disaster.

Why have these people been abducted? What is expected of them? Who is in charge of the operation? Why are villains crazy?

This is a peculiar story, and franky I don’t find it very plausible – yeah, I know, Science Fiction, but it does have plenty of action and adventure and danger. The ending has our heroes safe, but still no Dayna.

The acting is very good, guest stars excellent in their parts. The sound effects are excellent, as tends to be in this series.

Paul Darrow is his usual excellent self (sigh), Michael Keating, Jan Chappell, Stephen Pacey, Tom Chadbon and their guests all do well and Alistair Lock’s Orac is even more irritating than usual and tries to claim all the glory.

Thanks for reading

This is mostly a stand-alone story as very little progress is being made on the "Search for Dayna" storyline.

Essentially the team splits up to follow a lead at a space station which turns into a seperate investigation.

This is a full cast story, but several of the characters are kept out of the way reducing it down to a smaller cast for each scene, so it doesn't really make use of the cast it has available. The acting is fine with all of the regular players doing fine work, but the setting is underutilised and the story's link to the arc is minimal. Still it could easily have been an episode of the original series and reminded me of the episode "Gambit" from season 2.
