This is the ninety fifth release from Big Finish in their range of full cast audio adventures starring classic Doctor Whos. It stars Peter Davison as Five and Nicola Bryant as Peri. There are two stories here, the first three episodes are an adventure called Exotron, the fourth episode a one part story called Urban Myths. Episodes are roughly 25-30 minutes each, complete with original theme music between each, and cliff hanger endings within the three parter. Two episodes per disc on 2 discs, and a short booklet with some pictures of the cast and production notes. There are also some interviews with cast and crew at the end of the both the first and second discs.
Exotron is a pretty run of the mill Doctor story, with Five and Peri facing down giant robots and giant hyenas on a colonial outpost world. It's for the most part a well done tale, and even though it uses lots of old ideas and there are no real surprises the performance of Davison just about saves it and lifts it to a three star story.
The star of this disc, however, is the one part adventure Urban Myths. Keeping you slightly off kilter for most of it's run time, it is everything Who should be - unexpected, funny, thoughtful. Perfectly acted, especially by Davison and Bryant who relish playing OTT versions of their usual characters, it's a delightful tale, worth five stars and worth getting this release for.
In all 4 stars for a so-so main adventure and a stonkingly good add on.
There are interviews with cast and crew at the end of both discs, Big Finish were getting the hang of these by now and they are starting to be alittle more interesting and revealing than the first few were.
