Beyond the Ultimate Adventure (#6.06)

Big Finish, Companion Chronicles

I rather enjoyed this story better than The Ultimate Adventure, which this is a sequel to. It’s not quite so jam packed with baddies and craziness so it’s more straightforward and fun. But the baddie here is too easily defeated and Karl is superfluous to the story, for the most part. He gets the ball rolling but doesn’t do much after that. Ultima Thule is about what you’d expect from a planet name like that – the bad end! This story has a lot of little tributes for the fans – a Rutan, Raston Warrior Robot, and a vampire, plus the 2nd Doctor’s fur coat makes an appearance. This is a good romp as they go off to search for treasure and all of the loose ends are tied up. But the conclusion a bit unsatisfying… Such just 3 jelloids for this one!
