But deep in the caves of Onyakis alien technology is reactivating, Power is flowing, Something is forming inside the Darkness.

The Krotons are returning...

Timelord Thoughts.
To be honest I wasn't expecting much from this bonus release yet how pleasantly surprised I was when I listened to this gem of a story by Nicholas Briggs.

This has great performances throughout from the excellent performances of Colin Baker & India Fisher as the Sixth Doctor & Charley to the rich vocal tones of the late Phillip Madoc as Commander Cobden.

The Krotons make there Big Finish debut in this audio adventure & actually sound better in a audio format than there on screen apperance & although the plot doesn't offer any type of twists it does offer solid entertaining storytelling that kept me hooked throughout.

With great production values from Big Finish & a enjoyable bonus interview after the credits with actor Phillip Madoc this is 60 minutes of entertaining classic Doctor Who.

Timelord Rating 8/10.

Ah, the poor old Krotons - they never quite managed to be as sinister as they would have liked to have been did they?
Sounds like they redeemed themselves in this adventure. Great review timelord007.
