Big Finish Anniversary Special Release

The story begins with a hypnotist on stage at Jago’s theater then a murder moments later by someone who had been on the stage. Despite the various machinations Jago and Litefoot go through to figure out it’s Mr. Rees, I found that I was rolling my eyes a bit as it was pretty obvious from this “side” of the audience who the culprit was from the first act. But there’s always the storyline that prevents them from knowing instantly, though this villain wasn’t so good at covering his tracks.

And he didn’t quite understand the limits of his talents, either. Pain can help someone overcome his conditioning, as well as confusion when presented with an outside variable at a key moment for a distraction. Which saves Jago’s life! I really enjoyed this story and can’t wait to see the villain coming back in the future. That must be it, no? A villain across all of these BF anniversary stories! Cool stuff.
