The best big finish stories capture a real sense of atmosphere, masters of earth is no exception. a clever plot puts the Doctor in earth during the Dalek invasion but at the far edges trying to do everything he can to hide his identy and get away. Masters of earth is a steady paced story, hunted by the daleks and old monsters from Skaro, betrayal and plot twists abound as they move through the wasteland of earth under the daleks, all delivered with real atmosphere. In the latest run of stories involving Peri her character is more confident having a real a voice, this story tests and develops her relationship. All in all an excellent story.

Twists and Turns

The writing team of Wright and Scott are back with another story of plot and counter plot involving different factions, with the Doctor and the newly returned Peri caught in the middle of it all. The scene starts in Scotland one year before Doctor 1 defeats the Daleks in "The Dalek Invasion of Earth." This time it is Peri, older and more self-confident, who gets the pair in trouble when her moral outrage gets the better of her. Before you know it, there is a capture, an escape, and then a mad chase to the Orkneys. The story has very much the sense of the middle portion of "The Daleks' Masterplan," and even includes the Varga plants. The spirit of Terry Nation is all over this script. This could have been handled poorly, with just one danger following another. Wright and Scott have cleverly made these narrow escapes part of a coherent plot. Nothing is quite what it seems and motives are suitably murky. It's an engaging adventure.
