Evelyn has a tempestuous relationship with Rossiter's daughter Sophia, personally and politically, and the dissension amongst influential groups as to whether there should be research into the weaponry left behind by the Killoran invasion. The Doctor's visit turns deadly when Evelyn, Mel and many more are threatened.
This is a great story; just the right amount of intrigue and danger. The mystery is not too long left as a mystery, at least to the listener who has the advantage of hearing the interactions of all parties, whereas the Doctor is often working in isolation. But that does not detract from the storyline, and there are great sound effects, just enough to add to the action and the tension.
At the end there's a nice little twist with a visitor for Evelyn (which only really makes sense if you have lstened to the earlier stories with the Doctor and Evelyn in Project:Twilight and Project: Lazarus; if you haven't heard these stories, they are well worth getting). Leaves you with a little lump in your throught; great Doctor Who and great character-driven storytelling. Highly recommended.
This audio is set sometime after the events of the superb `arrangements' for war'. After that story Evelyn travelled for a little while with Six, but eventually returned to Villag and married Rossiter. In this adventure Six takes Mel to visit Evelyn. Later Evelyn/Six adventures are set in the period between arrangements for war and thicker than water.
This is a decent little character piece that looks at the relationship between the Doctor and his companions, and shows all the facets of Six's character. It shows him at his emotionally distant and petulant worst, and at his compassionate and heroic best. The story between him and Evelyn, as Evelyn moves on, is beautifully and believably done.
As well as the character piece there is a decent little adventure with mad scientists and weird experiments, kidnappings and dastardly deeds. A real cracker of a story, a worthy successor to arrangements.
Of especial note is Baker's performance. He really shows all the sides of the Doctor's character, and the depth of emotion he and Maggie Stables bring to the piece is quite staggering. 5 stars for this real belter of a story with a lot more depth than the usual run around.
This is a direct sequel to the earlier audio arrangements for war, and it's the last audio in chronological order for evelyn, as this reveals why she has left the tardis. The world on which she has settled is the one we saw in the earlier story, a planet of feuding nations that has just fought off an alien invasion. Can the doctor work out his feelings in regards to evelyn's depature? and what dastardly deeds are going on underneath the planet?
The cast and characters in this are superb. all are well written and well acted, and all get their chance to shine. bonnie langford as mel is a revelation if you hear the audios. short changed by poor writing on tv, these have allowed the character to become what she always should have been. And quite frankly she's one of the best companions ever. All the characters do work out their feelings over the course of the play and this is well written and handled.
trouble is it's also required to have a plot as well. as a result we get a rather weak one about secret experiments, conducted by a blatantly obvious villain for no other reason than the plot required it of them. This aspect of the play is not nearly as strong as the character stuff.
It's not a bad audio, it's just that the main plot of this is not one that really needed to be told
