This is the seventy eighth release from Big Finish in their range of full cast audio adventures starring classic Doctor Whos. It stars Colin Baker as Six, Maggie Stablees as Evelyn and in an inspired move, Roy Hudd as Max Miller. There are 4 episodes, roughly 30-35 minutes each, complete with original theme music between each, and cliff hanger endings. Two episodes per disc on 2 discs, and a short booklet with some pictures of the cast and production notes.
It starts off well. Set in the period (I think) between the events of Arrangements for War and Evelyn leaving he TARDIS to marry Rossiter (so preceding the last Evelyn/Doctor story to be released, Thicker than Water) we find ourselves in 1930s Brighton, in the company of Max Miller (convincingly played by that old trouper Roy Hudd) and Billy, who is (pleasingly for the fans) a character of great significance to Who history. But after the excellent setting the adventure really falls flat. It is over long, and full of clunky exposition without much action. And the exposition makes little or no sense. I caught some flashes of interesting ideas, such as the ruminations on the nature of evil that reminded me of Brighton Rock. But largely the plot was very dull and very badly put across.
There are highlights that make this worth a listen, notable Roy Hudd as the irrepressible cheeky chappie, and Baker and Stables working well off each other. But the uninspired script makes it a difficult listen. 3 stars.
