A sequel to Full Circle that finds the Fifth Doctor and crew pulled back into E-space and right back to Alzarius. Overall, the plot is dull and unimaginative with flat guest characters, a tedious plot, and clichéd dialogue. Several of the regulars aren't well-characterized, and the Nyssa and Turlough mainly served to keep them out of the way.

The only highlight is Jemma Redgrave making her Big Finish debut and turning in a good performance as the Decider.

Dull, boring and disappointing. Not good at all. Weak sound design, but nice 80s-style music. It may work for true fans of 'Full Circle', but it's certainly not working for me.

An older Nyssa is back with the television TARDIS crew lineup for no good reason, and her past continuity gets in the way of any plotting for this story.

It is an average in every way audio drama, and it is also hellbent on avoiding all the interesting stuff that a return to the setting of the original E-Space trilogy and Alzarius in particular could provide.

Davison was a "young" Doctor with a young very soap opera TARDIS team, this audio creaks with the age of the cast or perhaps just their weariness with the script.

If you really like the 5th Doctor and his immediate post-Earthshock lineup, this would be worth it, but for casual listeners - not worth it unfortunately.

Peter, Nyssa, Turlough and Tegan are once again thrust into the fore. This time they land on the planet courtesy of a CVE, they have landed on Alzarius a planet that every 50 years goes through a change or Mistfall. Why would the crew of the crashed StarLiner and it leader Decider Merrion want to wake and disturb the planets inhabitants, the monsters that live in the swamps and marsh what wonders do these beings have for this lost race. However not all Alsatians hold with her views and methods, and non more so than Yan in an outsider a guy who questions all of Merrion's and her followers actions, he too as also come to Alzarius at the time of Mistfall, with the Alizarin native Drell, and together they plan on finding out what Decider Merrion is up to. Into this mix we have the character of Pik Solus a sort of Alan Quartamaine but with a ruthless streak, a corrupt self righteous one, with ultimately a taste to benefit himself at the cost of anyone.


I loved this, this was a real Who adventure and could have easily been one that I missed when it was on TV in the 80 - 90's. The whole plot is complicated and also has a great deal of sub plots. There is the obvious anti establishment hero in the shape of Yan, the story of the oppressed natives in the shape of Drell. Then you have the corporate side who we are led to believe don't care about their society but the twist is in the tale. The Doctor in this is the chief favour to the whole story. Quite simply the best way to spend 2 hours in the company of some fine actors. Special mention must be given to Paul Panting who not only pulls off an excellent part in Drell but also it appears doubles as one the Marsh Men.
