The story worked well for me as it introduced a threat from parallel dimensions allowing a whole host of new monsters to be introduced which the writers clearly enjoyed. My favourite are the floating heads on which people can ride.
Eventually the story comes to a conclusion which the avid fan might well guess and I won't spoil. We also get some tremendous performances and are left keen for more with this cast.
Though it is a four disc set, like the Dark Eyes or Jago and Litefoot releases from Big Finish, this is one single adventure (though there is theme music at the start and end of each disc to break it up a little). It ties together a few things from the Big Finish/Seventh Doctor range, including the Kleine story (this follows from Architects of History, where after the rearrangement of the time lines she ended up as UNIT's scientific advisor) and Raine (who was introduced and then criminally mistreated by Big Finish in the second 'Lost Stories' season, thankfully they have realised their mistake and have brought her back here, giving her much better material). In these respects it is pretty much for hardcore fans who have heard Kleine and Raine's previous outings. But for those of you that have I can recommend that you do listen to this, as it is well worth the effort.
The story follows two strands to begin with. Odd things are happening on earth, and it is up to UNIT along with scientific adviser Kleine to deal with it. But up pops a figure in a blue police box. As ever, the Doctor seems to have appeared in the nick of time. But this is a version of the Doctor that no-one at UNIT has dealt with before. No-one remembers a bald incarnation... In the other strand Raine and Seven are summoned by a distress call across a dimensional divide. The Doctor soon has some hard choices to make, and all hell is let loose. Can he stuff the genie back into the bottle before the universe comes to an end?
Eventually the two stories converge into a stunning climax as Big Finish bring all the threads together.
In all I have to say I loved this adventure. There is plenty of incident, and lots of great character moments. McCoy turns in a very strong performance, which he tends to do when he is given great material. Kleine is given some very strong scenes, as she wrestles with her doubts and inner demons. And Raine is given the material she should have had in her introductory adventures. The biggest plaudits however go to Alex MacQueen as the bald Doctor. His is a powerhouse performance that strikes all the right notes of charm, menace and out and out lunacy. He and McCoy play off each other very well, really making this a memorable listen.
There are 4 one hour episodes, each on a separate disc in it's own jewel case, all collected into a card slipcase. There is a fifth disc in the last case of bonus interviews with cast and crew. It's a rip-roaringly good adventure with lots of good character work, memorable monsters, whacky incidents and a megalomaniacal, totally bonkers villain in a plot twist that, if you haven't read any of the spoilers, will make you gasp at the end of the second disc. It's excellent, 5 stars.
