5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 28 Jan. 2010
Not every doctor who monster is quite as well remembered as the daleks or the cybermen. Some never caught the imagination quite as well or were such a success on screen, and thus they faded into tv obscurity remembered only by the fans.

Such was fate for the krotons. only seen in a late 1960's story with the second doctor. A rather cheap story, and they were rather cheap looking creations.

But the strength of the krotons was in their voices. strong and powerful. Which makes them ideal characters for audio.

Big finish have thus resurrected them for a one off story involving the sixth doctor and his companion charley pollard.

This is a single story, complete in sixty minutes on one disc. It's set in the middle of a story arc involving the doctor and charley and secrets she has in regards to her origin. But save for one line near the end this never touches on that so casual listeners will have no trouble getting into it.

One a seemingly deserted and dead world, humans are mining the caverns. The leader of the expedition is not making himself popular with the rest of it. But when the krotons strike, all are in deadly danger.

This is a fairly standard story with a plot that doesnt offer any great surprises, but it's a competent production and a good script. The cast are great, especially lead guest star philip madoc. And the krotons voices really do work superbly in this format.

A decent little adventure all in all. Do listen to the interviews after the story as well, because philip madoc is an excellent interviewee and it's a really good listen as a result

The Krotons have returned!

This is a sequel to the 1968 TV story 'The Krotons' with Patrick Troughton and is the 2008 subscriber's special from Big Finish. 'Return of the Krotons' features Colin Baker and India Fisher as the Sixth Doctor and Charley Pollard and is written and directed by Nicholas Briggs.

The Doctor and Charley visit Onyakis and are soon caught in a web of political intrigue as there is opposition against the leadership of Commander Cobden. They soon discover that the Krotons are involved and have to stop them as they start to form and multiply in the Onyakis mines.

I enjoyed listening to this audio adventure with the Krotons. I wondered how Nick Briggs would reimagine these monsters for Big Finish audio and whether it would be exciting or not. The result is very good and is a decent story to feature these enemies of the Doctor.

The Krotons were created by Robert Holmes in his first 'Doctor Who'. They're not robots, but crystalline creatures that absorb the brain power of any human into their Dynatrope machine. The original TV story wasn't that inspiring compared to this audio adventure that fares better.

In the original TV story, the setting was the planet of the Gonds. This time we have the story set on the human colony world of Onyakis. The plot's not too different from the original Krotons story but it feels pacier and dynamic especially as it's a 70-minute adventure compared to a four-part story.

'Return of the Krotons' is a Sixth Doctor and Charley adventure.

A Good Enough Doctor Who Story 8 May 2014
By Adam - Published on Amazon.com
The Doctor and Charley arrive on a planet where there's typically dark and mysterious goings on occurring on a planet with the discovery of some mysterious headphones that will signal the return of aliens not seen since the second doctor's serial.

Overall, the story was competently done. It kept up a good pace and you didn't have to have seen the 2nd Doctor Serial featuring the Krotons to understand the story, nor did this audio spoil the Krotons if you wanted to go watch that serial later. The ending was slightly clever, though we get told about it more than actually hearing it.

However, while it's not bad, it's also not all that memorable. There was never much mystery about the story and Charley and the Doctor get very little time to interact, though there's promise of a momentous meeting for breakfast.

The one extra that comes with this CD is an interview with late Philip Madoc who appeared not only in this story but in the original Krotons series as well as three other Doctor Who serials with the second and fourth doctors.
