John Dorney is quickly becoming one of my favorite Big Finish writers along with Jonathan Morris and Marc Platt. He knows just what notes to hit to make a good story and that is helped with the return of Christopher Benjamin and Trevor Baxter as the investigators of infernal instances Gordon Henry, I mean Henry Gordon Jago and Professor George Litefoot reuniting with the Fourth Doctor. Their chemistry is amazing and even though the story is dark they are all very comedic.

The idea of Jalxar is great as the robot is powered by steam when a man tried to save the woman he loved. She of course had no idea that he existed giving a very tragic villain and this is a great way to get into the world of Jago and Litefoot and makes me want to check the range out even more.

There is a vigilante roaming the streets of Victorian London and our quartet of heroes have to stop him! 'The Justice of Jalxar' was written by John Dorney, and is a curious mixture of Fourth Doctor Adventure and Jago & Litefoot, although it leans more heavily towards the latter. John Dorney also wrote possibly the best story of the first season of the Fourth Doctor Adventures - although admittedly that wasn't hard considering the competition.

The sound effects crate a vibrant and detailed setting: the water lapping at the shore, wooden furniture splintering as it's broken and the gushing steam of the robot. The robot being the embodiment of steam punk, and that's what this story is. My only real complaint is that this felt over crowded with to duos swapping partners with one set wondering off to inevitably need rescuing at a later point, and that's with K-9 being written out. All in all, it's very enjoyable and well written, but I didn't think it did quite enough for it to be a classic. Saying that, it certainly wouldn't be out of place in any of the Jago & Litefoot box sets. This audio drama was recorded on 6 October and 7 November 2011.

Writer John Dorney has given us a Fourth Doctor Adventure in which he is reunited with Jago and Litefoot in time to face off against a Victorian Vigilante who evokes images of Superman and Judge Dread. And it really is as good as it sounds.

Despite all the other elements, Mary Tamm delivers a truly great performance that steals the show with cleverness, and some great light comedic touches. This is just superb.
