Cast[edit]

Continuity[edit]

  • The Kraals were in the 1975 Fourth Doctor television story, The Android Invasion. That story also featured UNIT.
  • This is the first use of Kraals by Big Finish Productions.
  • The Doctor and Leela encounter the Master again in the third season of Fourth Doctor adventures, due to be released in 2014.[2]

Critical reception[edit]

Doctor Who Magazine reviewer Matt Michael found the casting and performances excellent, but the play "slightly misjudged" as a finale.[3]
