This audio story features the Sixth Doctor with his companion Mel. It also follows as a sequel to an earlier story, Arrangements for War, where the Doctor, travelling with Evelyn Smythe find themselves becoming involved when they don't want to, and having to stop interplanetary war on Villag. During that earlier story, Evelyn falls in love with Governor Rossiter, but leaves him to go with the Doctor. In this story, set a couple of years in the future, Evelyn has returned and married Rossiter. The Doctor and Mel decide to visit.

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 is the seventy third release from Big Finish in their range of full cast audio adventures starring classic Doctor Whos. It stars Colin Baker as Six, Maggie Stables as Evelyn, Bonnie Langford as Mel and Gabriel Woolfe as Rossiter. There are 4 episodes, roughly 25-30 minutes each, complete with original theme music between each, and cliff hanger endings. Two episodes per disc on 2 discs.

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.

By Jane Aland VINE VOICE on 3 Oct. 2005
This 6th Doctor audio adventure is a superior sequel to the so-so story Arrangements For War, and also serves as the departure story for original audio companion Evelyn Smythe. The storyline is neatly divided into two halves: firstly dealing with rebels opposed to the scientific experimentation with alien technology - which leads to both Evelyn and Mel becoming involved n a hostage situation, and the second half, which deals with mysterious goings on in a hospital where Evelyn has had a heart complaint seen to. Full of vivid characters, solid plotting and menacing moments, with a nicely played overarching theme of the dysfunctional relationship between fathers and daughters mirrored in the Doctor and Evelyn's relationship, the only possible downside here will be for those listeners not fully au fait with Evelyn's audio adventures, as not only is this a sequel to Arrangements For War but you'll need to have heard Project: Twilight and Project: Lazarus to make sense of the coda. For those up on their continuity though, this is wonderful stuff.

By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 21 Aug. 2006
an audio adventure for the sixth doctor who, here paired with his companion mel as they go off to visit his former companion evelyn.

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
