The Movellan Grave (6.7)

Big Finish, Fourth Doctor Series

I do not recall the Movellan’s from the classic series, though I’m sure I saw them if they’re a 4th Doctor monster. They are definitely ruthless and a match for the Daleks in personality traits! This story is complex but comes down to emotions winning over cold logic. There is a special weapons Movellan, named Chenek, that is going crazy killing everyone. There is a logic to that as well as everything the Doctor and Romana do. The story moves along nicely and just does a great job of getting to the point without meandering too much. I found this a fantastic adventure overall!

Tom Baker(The Doctor),Lalla Ward(Romana),Camilla Power(Carrie Pierce),Polly Walker(Commander Narina),Chris Jarman(Chenek),John Banks(Robin Lyon),Jane Slavin(Mary). Other parts played by members of the cast
