This is the third and final story in a loosely overarching storyline. The first story, The Burning Prince featured the Fifth Doctor; the second, the Acheron Pulse features the Sixth Doctor, and this one features the Seventh Doctor. In all three stories the Doctor is without companions so the action is focused very much on the individual Doctors and their unique personalities.

By the end of the second story The Acheron Pulse the Sixth Doctor believes he has resolved the problem, moral, ethical and otherwise of the Wrath and leaves well pleased with his work. Some fifty years later the Seventh Doctor, as played by Sylvester McCoy is caught up in the long-simmering aftermath that still seems to plague the Drashani Empire.

This story is rather cleverly played out - the first cd (made up of two parts) I thought it was all a bit pat, as the Doctor seemed to know what was going on (even though we didn't), and I thought for a while it was going to be one of those `too clever for its own good' stories where it all falls into place too easily. But when you get to the second cd (third and fourth parts of the story) it all comes together for the listener and becomes a much more overall satisfying story, which is very cleverly and craftily put together.

I thoroughly enjoyed this story, and absolutely loved the three overarching stories in this storyline. The Wrath are a great creation, and in this third story they are utterly enthralling - I kept playing the scenes with them over and over just to hear their voices - brilliant. This story, and the three stories in the storyline are totally and utterly recommended. This is fantastic Doctor Who and should not be missed by any Doctor fan.

The final part in the epic Drashani Empire trilogy sees the 7th Doctor Sylvester Mccoy back in the empire 50 years after his last visit and this time he has a price on his head after events from the last story. A ruthless bounty hunter working for a mysterious master is after The Doctor as are The Wrath now justice machines following the events of The Archeron Pulse plus Earth battle ships and a crew of intergalactic salvage hunters are all involved too. The first part The Burning Prince was excellent and while the 2nd and 3rd parts of the trilogy aren't as good it has still been a fun and enjoyable trilogy with Star Trek Deep Space Nine's Chase Masterson giving an excellent guest performance as the bounty hunter after The Doctor and i would love to see a return appearance from the character in future audios or even an appearance on tv. Sylvester Mccoy like Colin Baker got a lot of stick when he was The Doctor on tv but though he did start off terrible in his first season he got a lot better and darker later on and this audio shows signs of both the clown he played in his earlier stories plus the darker more manipulative Doctor from his later ones who i prefferred. Whether or not The Doctor will return for further adventures in the empire is unclear but it has been a fun trilogy.

This is the hundred and sixty seventh release from Big Finish in their range of full cast audio adventures starring classic Doctor Whos. It stars Sylvester McCoy as a companionless Seven. There are four episodes, roughly 30-40 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. This is the third part of a trilogy of interlinked adventures, the first featured the Fifth Doctor, and the second featured the Sixth, giving us a multi Doctor story in which the various incarnations do not meet ‘on screen’, a great concept that Big Finish have toyed with in the past, but never fully committed to like this.

Being the third part of a trilogy, this spends a bit of time wrapping up loose ends, and it is recommended listening to the first two instalments, ‘The Burning Prince’ and ‘The Acheron Pulse’ first in order to get the most out of this.

I’ll have to keep this vague so as not to give any spoilers. Following the theme of the Doctor dealing with the consequences of his past, this finds him on the run from a bounty hunter whilst trying to sort out the problems his pride created at the end of the previous adventure, some 50 years after his previous visit to the Drashani empire. The narrative is fractured and utilises his ability to travel in time very nicely, giving us a story that keeps the listener on their toes as they try to follow it, but not so complicated that it detracts from the fun of it. It’s the sort of sotry structure that suits the manipulative Seventh Doctor very well.
