This is the hundred and sixtieth release from Big Finish in their range of full cast audio adventures starring classic Doctor Whos. It stars Peter Davison as Five, with Mark Strickson as Turlough, Sarah Sutton as the older Nyssa and Janet Fielding as Tegan. There are four episodes, roughly 25-30 minutes each, complete with cliffhangers and original theme music between each. Two episodes per disc on 2 discs, and a short booklet with some pictures of the cast and production notes. There are some interviews with cast and crew at the end of the second disc and a few minutes of the soundtrack at the end of disc 1.

The Doctor, Tegan, Turlough and Nyssa arrive on comet 8/Q Panenka, which is quickly revealed to be a sort of second class postal service between Earth and Jupiter, with a small but thriving community on it’s surface. It soon transpires that the community is not as thriving as it first seemed, something is very wrong and the community are ready to blame the most likely suspects – the most likely suspects being a bunch of mysterious strangers who have just appeared in their midst... But there is something much deeper going on, and the Doctor is soon locked into a struggle to save more than just the people on the comet.

Big Finish have done well over the years playing around with the somewhat elastic nature of Dr Who to give us a wide range of stories. But every now and then they go back to basics, and deliver a solid tale that works brilliantly despite being made up of all the usual Who clichés. And this is one of those stories.

A new Doctor Who audio play. Featuring Peter Davison as the Doctor. Plus Janet Fielding, Sarah Sutton and Mark Strickson as his companions Tegan, Nyssa and Turlough.

This is the second story in the latest run of three to feature this line up. There is an ongoing storyline to them involving Nyssa looking for a cure to a disease. But they are almost all pretty much stand alone so casual listeners could get into this one quite easily without having heard any of the earlier ones. There is a passing remark to something that happened to Nyssa in the previous tale The Emerald Tiger (Doctor Who) but that has no bearing on this one so it won't be a problem to anyone listening to this who hasn't heard that.

This story runs for four parts, each of just under twenty five minutes in length [approx] and is spread across two cd's.

It's set in the twenty fourth century and sees the TARDIS land inside a comet. Which has an orbit that takes it between Earth and Jupiter. Which makes it ideal for delvering things from planet to planet. And there's a whole lot of human living there.

But they are a community in turmoil, thanks to thefts and disappearances. The TARDIS crew are quickly caught up in all this and separated. Some mount an expedition of mercy that has consequences. And some end up on trial.

The secrets of the comet wait to be revealed. They could have deadly consequences. For all concerned. And for two planets...

The length of the episodes is just right and means the whole thing moves at a decent pace. The regulars are a superb team and all interact very well together. Each does get their moment to shine also.

After a strong run of stories featuring the Sixth Doctor and then his immediate predecessor, this comes as a bit of a disappointment. It just seemed to lack originality and verve - apart from anything else it again employs the 'companion presumed dead' plot device; me surely things aren't this lacking in creativity around the Big Finish offices?!
Turlough is marginalised here, and perhaps to compensate for her barren years during the TV series, Nyssa gets the most to do in the story - it's a shame, as Mark Strickson's overgrown schoolboy is easily the most interesting of the trio early 80s companions represented during the period in which this is set.

Peter Davison seems to slip back to The Doctor with ease. Sarah Sutton does the same as Nyssa. However I feel Mark and Janet have lost their way a bit

Pay close attention ... 2 Jun. 2013
By Hatbox Dragon - Published on Amazon.com
... Or you'll miss important details. The Jupiter Conjunction is a tale of plots, fake identities and double-crosses - these elements drive the story, but they're not the easiest to take in in audio-only format.

The comet Panenka houses a freight business, the cheaper option for shipping freight between Earth and Jupiter, but in 2329 business is bad and a string of serious thefts are making matters worse. Arriving on a whim, the Doctor and Turlough are quickly arrested, while Nyssa and Tegan rush to help one of the locals and find themselves outside of the comet's surface. They soon learn that Panenka holds some very dangerous secrets, and that some unscrupulous players have plans for it - plans with appalling consequences ...

I needed a couple of listens to absorb all the detail in this adventure, but I enjoyed it the first time around. The main cast are very much in character; I particularly liked that Turlough got to be genuinely clever and there are some nice moments of tension between him and the Doctor. The guest cast are a bit out of the ordinary and some are quite appealing. Maybe there are a few plot holes, and maybe some elements of the ending are a little hard to credit, but overall this is a good adventure that is definitely worth a listen.

Fifth Doctor audio drama sequel to The Emerald Tiger (Doctor Who), set between the TV episodes Enlightenment (Doctor Who: The Black Guardian Trilogy (Mawdryn Undead / Terminus / Enlightenment) (Stories 126 - 128)) and Doctor Who: The King's Demons (Story 129).
