The Villain's the Problem

This is an anniversary omnibus containing 4 stories loosely linked. This time, the story goes through different side series created by Big Finish - Jago & Litefoot, Counter Measures, the Vault, and Gallifrey. Doctor 6 shows up in the last one. The linking thread is a villainous mind that lives inside a music box and takes over other people's minds, starting with a Victorian boy. Each of the stories can stand on its own in a way. Thus, once we have the pattern established in the first story, it pretty much runs the same throughout. The villain is not really fleshed out more than that, and in fact gets pretty much unfleshed after the first story, being a skeleton then a skull. We never really do get a good idea of what this evil intelligence is. Plus, its motivation is mostly that it likes controlling people and killing. The villain really needed to be better thought through.
