Having learned enough to know who was behind the killing of Sir Toby and two other men, Rachel, Gilmore, and Allison race to save a visiting Arab prince who is targeted for assassination. However, to do so they have to face challenges from the Prince's guards and agent Overton who suspects them of plot an assassination.

The second part has some great suspenseful turns as well as more than its share of surprises. The episode not only resolves the storyline from the previous part, but also cleans up the Old Counter Measures story and sets the stage for the New Counter Measures sets.

Kinsella, Gilmore, Jenson and Williams, once again grace our eardrums. The Light are the sole crusade of Kinsella, to rid the earth of them once and for all, he has engineered a way of getting rid of them once and for all, at least enough to make a decided dent in their attempts to over throw and rule the earth. However, whilst implementing his plan of extraction he encounters two slight anomalies, one an old chum from his university days, whom just happens to be a Middle Eastern Prince, and the other an assassin, who in the confusion of carnage of the Light’s execution at the opera, Kinsella is hunted down by an killer, and we hear him shot and fall to his death in the river. Is this the end, who is the Prince, and our three counter measure members are about to get all mixed up again in a battle for the safety of us all. Oh wow, it was so good to hear that Big Finish bought back Counter Measures and this introductory to the New Counter Measures is both rewarding and excellent, I love the old team back in their stride, but I especially love the overall feel of this release, it gives nostalgia a wonderful injection of pace, whilst being fresh and exciting and new this is also a massive slab of that 60’s quirky spy thriller genre with just a twist of the science fiction that I have come to love in this series from Big Finish, simply top stuff.
