Masterpiece (11.4)

Big Finish Jago and Litefoot Series

If you’ve seen the cast list of this story you know that the 6th Doctor will show up in this story. Eventually. I won’t give away when or how but he definitely chooses his moment well! I really enjoyed this story as Jago and Litefood almost figure this out by themselves. The Doctor just has to put the final pieces together to defeat the Master and free Inspector Quick from the influence of the Master. And it all wraps up quite nicely. Plus the title is pretty prescient.

I did wonder what he does to Ellie in this story – is it for good or evil? I didn’t suspect an altruism in his activity and we know from previous stories that Ellie lives a very long time indeed. And we aren’t kept in suspense as the final moments preview the coming storyline that will be a difficult one for the team.

Christopher Benjamin(Henry Gordon Jago),Trevor Baxter(Professor George Litefoot),Ellie Higson(Lisa Bowerman),Conrad Asquith(Inspector Quick),Geoffrey Beevers(The Master),Rachel Atkins(Madame Sosotris/Bishop) andColin Bakeras The Doctor.
