The Pescatons

Big Finish Special Release

This story has a most perplexing start, with the Doctor and Sara Jane on a foggy beach with an approaching noisy monster. Then they are suddenly in modern day England with the Pescatons on the attack, then the Doctor visits Pesca, a dying planet. And things move along from there, with the Doctor figuring out the one “enemy” of the Pescatons to prevent their invasion of Earth by Zor and his Pescatons. A bit of an abbreviated plot and adventure here. Very oddly put together – I can see why Tom Baker didn’t really want to do any more of these after this strangeness!
