This set offers Tom Baker giving a superb performance of the Doctor, capturing much of his Doctor at his very best. The balance of drama and humour in the scripts is excellent, giving Tom some first class dialogue and enabling him to show that he is capable of giving a top rate portrayal. The two stories, originally planned for the television series but not used, are well written, fun, exciting and entertaining. The guest performances, in particular Louise Brealey, are all very good. Music and sound effects are well chosen, contributing to and end result that is nothing short of a total joy. The Foe From The Future is a full, six part top notch, well acted Tom Baker story, and for anyone who who enjoyed Tom's seven series as the Doctor, in particular the styles around seasons fourteen and fifteen, this story is a pleasure to the ears. The Valley of Death is full of surprises, and Tom seems even better than in Foe, if that were possible. Whilst the first story in the new Big Finish series for the fourth Doctor, as a single disc two-parter isn't very strong (Destination Nerva, well performed but not well written) here it all comes together. Congratulations to everyone who worked on these audio stories, in particular to Louise Jameson for encouraging Tom to record them, and Tom Baker for showing that he can still bring his Doctor vividly to life.

Some of the other audios Tom has done do not capture his Doctor at all but in these Big Finish audios he has nailed it completely. As has Louise Jameson and it is a delight to see more sunstance to her character at long last. It's the saturday teamtimes of my youth all over again!

As the title of this box set clearly suggests, it contains two stories that are typically characteristic of the Philip Hinchcliffe era. Whether they count as ‘lost’ stories as such, I suppose, depends on your interpretation; but the first is a story that was cancelled due to the script writing not keeping up with production schedules and the second was never commissioned because Hinchcliffe moved on and that it was too ambitious and, thus, expensive for the time.

It takes very little effort to imagine ‘Foe from the Future’ forming part of the third year of the Fourth Doctor. It certainly contains many aspects that will be recognised by those familiar with the earlier half of Tom Baker’s tenure as the Doctor. There’s a sinister presence in an old country estate house, creepy goings on in a village, humans infected with insectoid DNA and elements of English village life being replicated for training purposes for an invasion, amongst others. Where ‘Foe from the Future’ is successful is in blending these familiar things together into an entertaining and gripping story whilst maintaining enough original aspects.

Straddling across two very different time periods, with a huge array of characters, there is enough happening to comfortably sustain the six episodes. The Doctor and Leela are separated for much of the action but there is plenty of scope within the story for them both to have lots to do. In many ways it allows the Doctor to take an intellectual approach to the enemy whilst Leela takes a much more physically aggressive one (including a couple of fantastic fights for audio in the latter stages). There is also space for Charlotte (‘from the village’) to fulfil an almost companion role in her own right.
