The Elite

First in a new line of Lost Stories of the Fifth Doctor from Big Finish, written by BF regular John Dorney from an idea by Barbara 'Enlightenment' Clegg. These Lost Stories have been a bit hit and miss, with a substantial fraction of them perhaps better off lost, but this is a very strong start to this sequence, set just after Arc of Infinity, exploring an enclosed totalitarian ideological planetary regime, with a sinister influence behind it all. I had read a DWM review which commented that although the educated listener can guess what is likely to be revealed at the end of Episode 2, the end of Episode 3 comes as a complete surprise, and that turned out to be equally true for me as well. It was rather spooky to listen to scenes of revolutionary mayhem in the immediate aftermath of Gaddafi's end and the Tunisian elections. I hope the rest of this sequence are as good.
