The Similarity Engine (1.4)

Big Finish Jago and Litefoot Series

And there goes the series 1 bad guy! Dr. Tulp we hardly knew ye. But he definitely went out with a rather disgusting ending. Made my tummy twitch from the descriptions alone! Made me glad this isn’t a series on TV. Yuck.

Though I did like this story and how perceptive Jago was in the end, Dr. Tulp didn’t really threaten Jago or Litefoot all that effectively. The menace of the wooden men was much more pronounced in The Mahogany Murders than in this story. Though everything about Tulp and his technology was explained, as well as Toby’s comments at the end of The Spirit Trap. Nicely wrapped up but I was a bit disappointed how the duo decides to go different ways at the end of the story. Definitely makes we want to go buy series 2!

This is a classic main range Dr. Who style of audio where the two are separated, having adventures. They eventually meet up again but the moments in between are good but really, it’s the two of them together that make the series so good
