The Final Phase (#2.07)

Big Finish, Fourth Doctor Series

Wowee wow wow! Mr. Briggs has outdone himself with this series of stories with Cuthbert, Romana I, and the Fourth Doctor. This has been quite the trail of adventures across the universe to a crazy showdown with the Daleks. It all started with The Sands of Life, where the Doctor doesn’t recall Cuthbert in Earth’s history yet he and his corporation have become very powerful indeed. And in this story we find out just how determined and egotistical Cuthbert really is! The only thing that made me roll my eyes in this whole story is his particular ending, but I don’t see how it could be any other way. So yeah, sad to see the last of Mary Tamm’s stories as this series was GREAT and what a fabulous ending to the season. Bring on the K-9 stealth mode! ;)
