The Hunting Grounds (#246)

Big Finish Main Range

The title of this story is very apt, which isn’t disappointing at all. The Doctor lands on Earth and finds, oddly enough, something strange going on. Imagine that. He meets Yrsa, a very capable policewoman, as well as some other very capable though also comedy relief police folks (Constable Flojke and Chief Inspector Ingrid). I particularly love the singing/talking printer! There is definitely hunting going on and an alien corporation, Helliod Incorporated, in charge of the strange goings on.

This story has some humorous elements, serious ones as people are being killed, then action galore. It’s a fun story, with alien wolf creatures who are very friendly, ultimately. It’s really very appropriate for the 6th Doctor, ultimately.
