The Timelord and his companion Amy materialise on board a spaceship piloted by the slug-like Teuthoidians, and promptly see the TARDIS jettisoned into space. If this isn't bad enough, the ship's engines are about to explode and another ship appears, intent on destroying the Teuthoidian vessel...
I think this story arc has gone from strength to strength and The Chaos Pool provides a fitting finale. With plenty for long in the tooth Whovians to get nostalgic about: The Key to Time, The Black and White Guardian and the return of one of The Doctor's old allies; plus some great new aliens and a brilliant twist, this audio is the complete package. Big Finish have come flying out of the starting gates in 2009, and one senses the best is yet to come...
After the slightly better `Destroyer of Delights', this release rounds out a disappointing trilogy by taking the quality down a notch to a level similar to the trilogy opener, the Judgement of Isskar. It's a chaotic story in which Five and Amy must find the sixth segment, find the Chaos Pool and then do something or other to stop the Key decaying key destroying the Universe. Oh, and stop any other interested parties (Guardians, Graces etc) getting their hands on it. Cue lots of incomprehensible technobabble and pointless running around as Peter Davison does his best to hold it all together in the face of a terrible script and some aliens who sound unnervingly like Frankie Howerd at times. He gives it his all, but to be honest the script is beyond even his skills. And then, with a leap and a bound he solves the whole thing in an incredibly anticlimactic climax that didn't really need twelve episodes of the main range (and however many spin off episodes) to reach.
There are some nice ideas here, but when they do occur they are wasted. Chief among these is the revelation of the identity of Madam President.Read more ›
but if you are familiar with all the above then this is a very satisfying conclusion to the trilogy. the doctor and the other characters who are after the key to time all end up together on the same planet, and the resulting confrontations decide the fate of the universe.
this is not a big explosive climax, but one that is resolved thanks to some excellent character development. The story builds nicely for the first three episodes and then has a final part that does manage to deliver on it's promise. it oontains a few strong moral debates that are perfectly in keeping with the style of similar ones the fifth doctors era. excellent dialogue, some moments that will make you stand up and cheer, and a few that will make you yell in surprise [if you're familiar with the stories mentioned earlier] make for a satisfying listen.

We find the Doctor, his companion Amy and her sister Zara forced to hard choices as they attempt to acquire the 6th and final segment of the Key to time. The situation results in two similar flashbacks to the final episode of the original Doctor Who: The Armageddon Factor (Episode 103) (The Key to Time Series, Part 6).
One is the appearance of Lalla Ward in a rather deceptive role, the second involve the moral choice of not only the use of the key in the past and future but of the created Zara and Amy as well.
The whole episode is really what the Doctor is all about, getting people to rise above themselves.
You really should listen to The Key 2 Time: Judgement of Isskar Pt. 1 (Doctor Who) and The Key 2 Time: Destroyer of Delights Pt. 2 (Doctor Who) before this one but if you can only hear one of them this is it.
