I love that audio paring of Davison and Sutton, and this installation is no exception. What could be more fun than the Fifth Doctor returning to Vortis in the far-flung aftermath of his previous visit - to once again navigate the complexities of Zarbi and Menoptra species? Well, I can think of a few things - but they are all quite fun.
The Doctor and Nyssa find themselves drawn to the planet, along with many other space faring vessels - all pulled in by a mysterious force. Future humans play out their fascinatingly complex role as bio engineered beings destined to seed the cosmos - against the backdrop of giant sentient termite/ants and moth people.
A solid 9.
