Excellent Bonus Audio Adventure,
This review is from: Dr Who Return of the Krotons (Audio CD)
1xCD of 60 minute audio adventure.
Trailer & behind the scenes interviews.
1)The late Phillip Madoc has had several appearances over the year's in Doctor Who,
The Krotons, The War Games, The Brain Of Morbius, The Power Of Kroll & for Big Finish Doctor Who he appeared in the 40th anniversary story Master.
2)The Krotons first encountered the Second Doctor on tv in the story titled The Krotons.
3)This was originally a free to Big Finish subscribers special released with main range story The Raincloud Man.
4)While semi conscious Charley refers to C'rizz death & the Eighth Doctors reaction to it.
5)Writer/director/actor Nicholas Briggs voices the Daleks, Cybermen & Ice Warrior's for Big Finish & the tv series plus to many other roles to mention here.
The Sixth Doctor & Charley Pollard arrive on the dead plant Onyakis which is being plundered by Commander Cobden & the last survivors of the human race, Cobden who'll stop at nothing to get what he wants & anyone who dares oppose him will result in there eventual disappearance.
But deep in the caves of Onyakis alien technology is reactivating, Power is flowing, Something is forming inside the Darkness.
The Krotons are returning...
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.

Yeah hearing them instead of hearing them made them sound more sinister.
