Cast: Frances Ashman, Stephanie Cole, William Hope, Natalie Klamar, Hywel Morgan, Brian Protheroe, Jane Wymark, Tristram Wymark.

Whitechapel, Series Four, Case 1. Television Review. I.T.V.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating * * * * (Series 4, case 1)

Cast: Rupert Penry Jones, Phil Davis, Steve Pemberton, Claire Rushbrook, Sam Stockman, Ben Bishop, Hannah Walker, Georgina Anderson, Deddie Davies, Jake Curran, Damian Dudkiewicz, Mary Roscoe, Brian Protheroe.

It is perhaps fitting that some of the older foes from the classic series of Doctor Who make their way into the Big Finish roster, especially as the parent television programmes gears up for what is fast becoming a very special 50th anniversary but some monsters and villains having been used once during the 70s and 80s should be left where the memory of their time on screen can be quietly and easily forgotten and the relation to the programme left to slivers of reminiscence when the mood descends. Such is the fate of the latest release Eldrad Must Die!
