4.0 out of 5 stars a little learning 28 Jan 2010
By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Not every doctor who monster is quite as well remembered as the daleks or the cybermen. Some never caught the imagination quite as well or were such a success on screen, and thus they faded into tv obscurity remembered only by the fans.

Such was fate for the krotons. only seen in a late 1960's story with the second doctor. A rather cheap story, and they were rather cheap looking creations.

But the strength of the krotons was in their voices. strong and powerful. Which makes them ideal characters for audio.

Big finish have thus resurrected them for a one off story involving the sixth doctor and his companion charley pollard.

This is a single story, complete in sixty minutes on one disc. It's set in the middle of a story arc involving the doctor and charley and secrets she has in regards to her origin. But save for one line near the end this never touches on that so casual listeners will have no trouble getting into it.

One a seemingly deserted and dead world, humans are mining the caverns. The leader of the expedition is not making himself popular with the rest of it. But when the krotons strike, all are in deadly danger.

This is a fairly standard story with a plot that doesnt offer any great surprises, but it's a competent production and a good script. The cast are great, especially lead guest star philip madoc. And the krotons voices really do work superbly in this format.

A decent little adventure all in all. Do listen to the interviews after the story as well, because philip madoc is an excellent interviewee and it's a really good listen as a result

4)While semi conscious Charley refers to C'rizz death & the Eighth Doctors reaction to it.
5)Writer/director/actor Nicholas Briggs voices the Daleks, Cybermen & Ice Warrior's for Big Finish & the tv series plus to many other roles to mention here.

Synopsis.
The Sixth Doctor & Charley Pollard arrive on the dead plant Onyakis which is being plundered by Commander Cobden & the last survivors of the human race, Cobden who'll stop at nothing to get what he wants & anyone who dares oppose him will result in there eventual disappearance.

But deep in the caves of Onyakis alien technology is reactivating, Power is flowing, Something is forming inside the Darkness.

The Krotons are returning...

Timelord Thoughts.
To be honest I wasn't expecting much from this bonus release yet how pleasantly surprised I was when I listened to this gem of a story by Nicholas Briggs.

This has great performances throughout from the excellent performances of Colin Baker & India Fisher as the Sixth Doctor & Charley to the rich vocal tones of the late Phillip Madoc as Commander Cobden.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Good Enough Doctor Who Story 8 May 2014
By Adam - Published on Amazon.com
The Doctor and Charley arrive on a planet where there's typically dark and mysterious goings on occurring on a planet with the discovery of some mysterious headphones that will signal the return of aliens not seen since the second doctor's serial.

Overall, the story was competently done. It kept up a good pace and you didn't have to have seen the 2nd Doctor Serial featuring the Krotons to understand the story, nor did this audio spoil the Krotons if you wanted to go watch that serial later. The ending was slightly clever, though we get told about it more than actually hearing it.

However, while it's not bad, it's also not all that memorable. There was never much mystery about the story and Charley and the Doctor get very little time to interact, though there's promise of a momentous meeting for breakfast.

The one extra that comes with this CD is an interview with late Philip Madoc who appeared not only in this story but in the original Krotons series as well as three other Doctor Who serials with the second and fourth doctors.
