Antidote to Oblivion (#182)

Big Finish Main Range

My brain needs a good scrubbing now! Sil is just icky incarnate. Which makes him a most successful villain, though revolting. Oh no! Just listening to the interview portion and Mr. Briggs is planning to put Flip (Phillipa Jackson!) on ice for awhile – they’re leading up to just putting her aside for awhile in this series. Or maybe that’s what did happen? It’s been awhile since we’ve heard a story with Flip. Perhaps it’s just due to Lisa Greenwood’s growth as an actor….

This story is simple with lots of loops in it. How Sil convinces Cordelia to believe him is really beyond me. She must have been young and impressionable, that’s for sure. And she turns on him right quick, too. The only part I don’t understand is the explosion at the end as Sil says he put explosives in the lab, not the board room. Hmmm. This is a great return for the slimy one, Sil. And he may just be getting his just deserts at the end, too!
