A great surprise from a great villain

When we have the return of classic villains, the story has to be new and fresh and not recycle any of the elements from the first story that features the villains. And Justin Richards has done that with the return of the...well youll have to listen to this story to find out!

Its great to see a female getting one of the villain parts and playing it so well too. And the ever present wit and charm of the bantering between the Doctor and Romana is as ever brilliant to listen to. And yet again its good that K9 gets to be more than just the background computer again!

The most bland thing about this story is the tepid title, but dont fret. The story itself is very very entertaining indeed!! Big Finish always make some great new ideas for when they chose to resurrect old villains. They never just retread the same old ground. And thats so awesome!!

Return of a Classic Villain?

"Wave of Destruction" surprisingly does not make many waves. It is by-the-numbers Doctor Who. Doctor 4, Romana 2, and K-9 (I guess that's 15-love for the good guys) thwart another invasion of Earth, this time in the mid 1960s. There are some funny bits with pirate radio. The villains for this are a race that made one appearance in a less than beloved Doctor 4 serial from TV. In the "making of" bonus tracks, author Justin Richards mentions an original idea he had for the story that, frankly, probably would have been more interesting than what we ended up with.
