This is the fourth story in the third series of the Fourth Doctor Adventures, featuring Tom Baker as the Fourth Doctor, and Louise Jameson as his travelling companion Leela.

In this story (two parts over one cd), the Doctor and Leela land in the Tardis in the cargo hold of a luxury space cruiser, the Moray Rose. But there doesn’t appear to be anybody else about. Before long, the Doctor is mixed up with the agents of Inter-Galaxy Insurance who are also trying to find out what’s happening to their insurance risks; but Leela has been separated from the Doctor and is having trouble remembering things as she had thought they were. And is Interplantery Police Inspector Efendi already known to the Doctor?

This is a great story, very indicative of the Fourth Doctor era from classic Who on tv in the 1970s. Even the music is evocative of that era. The story is well paced, and it’s great to see Leela getting some time to build her character in this story. The relationship between the Doctor and Leela is stronger than ever after their earlier shaky trouble (at the end of the King of Sontar story). It’s also nice to have Michael Keating (Vila from Blake’s 7) guest star in this story as Calvert, with Gareth Armstrong (Blake from Blake’s 7) as Arthley and Salonu Prime. The other guest star I won’t name for fear of spoilers, but it’s great to hear this person returning in these classic-style Fourth Doctor stories. My only gripe is the two part stories in this range, which don’t give sufficient time for development of the story – first part is setting up the story, second part is resolution. Longer stories would of course be better, as we would also get to hear more of the utterly wonderful and adored Tom Baker.

A new Doctor Who audio story. Fourth in the current run of them which feature Tom Baker as the Doctor and Louise Jameson as Leela. This does though stand pretty much all on it's own and casual listeners should be able to get into easily, without having heard any of the others in this audio season.

The story is a two parter, complete on a single cd, and the episodes run twenty six and thirty minutes in length [approx.].

It starts with Leela having bad dreams about the death of her father [seen at the beginning of the tv story 'the Face of Evil']. Tom Baker very nicely underplays the resulting conversation that the two of them have about it.

Then the TARDIS lands in the hold of a luxury space cruiser. A ship on which the passengers and crew are conspicuous by their absence.

When investigating, the time travellers meet an uncompromising insurance investigator. And some very dangerous metallic mantis like aliens.

Elsewhere, an interplanetary investigator called Efendi is watching. And Leela's bad dreams are about to become real....

Feeling very much like a story that could have come from Tom Baker's fourth tv season, the atmosphere and the style of this are just so right from the off, with it once again living up to the slogan to be like Saturday teatime in 1977 all over again. The insurance investigator is played by Michael Keating. Best known as Vila in Blakes seven, he also appeared in the tv story 'the sunmakers' which came from that fourth year.

The atmosphere of horror and dangerous aliens throughout the first part is really good. Then an old enemy strikes. Doing something that works effectively on audio, and leads to a good cliffhanger.

Considering the title it would be easy enough to expect that this was a sequel to the ‘Face of Evil’. However, that is not really the case. Rather it looks at some of the results that arise from those events, mainly the loss of Leela’s father and her coming to terms with it, something never addressed within the television series. Not that the play labours over this or gets bogged down in emotional content. The death of Leela’s father at the outset of ‘The Face of Evil’ is used within events to expose the strengths and weaknesses that this has given Leela’s character.

This is therefore another story within this latest Fourth Doctor series which further explores the character of Leela in a more in depth way than the television series ever had time for. It gives Louise Jameson the chance to play two versions of Leela, which she does superbly. As such there is less of a focus on the Doctor. Even still there is some good dialogue between the Doctor and the Master. One of the highlights of the play is the contrast between how the Doctor and the Master exert influence over Leela.

Geoffrey Beavers manages to be effortlessly sublime as the Master in an almost Roger Delgado style whilst at the same time portraying the malicious hatred towards the Doctor and the need for vengeance that the Master seems to exhibit in ‘The Deadly Assassin’. Michael Keating also gives a good performance but hasn’t really been given an extensive enough role to fully get into and develop.

The alien threat, the Salonu, sound great (another amazing alien voice created by Nicholas Briggs) but suffer from having to share their role as villains with the Master.
