The Daleks in Big Finish, I personally have found much more well done and creepy, than anytime in the classic series after the 4th doctor and throughout the new series, so that definitely helps

Of the dozen or so Big Finish audio adventures I have purchased this is the only one that has really been a letdown.

The basic plot involves negotiation between time traveling races. As always The Doctor shows up at an inopertune time discovering not only that his former companion Romana has been elected president but has been missing for 20 years. This leads to the discovery of the Dalek plot and a series of confrontations that lead to a rather mediocre finale.

As a vechile for re-introducing Romana it is a poor one, Lalla Ward does pretty good with poor materal she is given. Colin Baker suffers from bouts of overacting during the performance which reflects both on him and Director Nick Briggs who is usually in much better form.

Briggs performance as one of the two Dalek voices is far better, he and Alistar Lock play them well but like Ward have bad materal to work with. The Evelyn Smythe character is just boring. Maggie Stables doesn't do a bad job with it but you just don't care about her. I'll have to find another adventure with her to see if with a better story we I might like her more so maybe I should withhold judgement.

If you are a Dalek or a Romana fanatic or which to collect the entire series then you will want this, otherwise if you are a Colin Baker fan I'd stick with the new adventures with India Fisher instead.

A lot happens in this audio adventure. A lot. The Doctor is reunited with the Time Lady Romana, he returns to Gallifrey just before it's invaded by the Daleks, and the entire Universe is almost destroyed. This story could easily be spun out to twice its length so as is it moves at a frantic pace and some of the lesser plot lines don't get proper resolutions. Naturally there's a big cast of characters and another quibble with this work is that the vocalizations of a few supporting characters needed to be more distinctive because I had trouble following what was going on in some scenes. Still Colin Baker and Lalla Ward were both terrific which makes this a can't miss installment for Who fans.

The Doctor and Evelyn arrive on the planet Archetryx during a summit of time powers. As the Daleks invade the conference, President Romana, who has been missing for twenty years, reappears with a strange crystal that could spell the end of the entire universe.

The basic ingredients of this story--Daleks, Gallifrey and the return of Romana--sound like a no-fail recipe a great adventure. Sadly, the whole thing comes off as a bit half-baked.

There is just too much going on. In addition to infiltrating the time summit, the Daleks are stealing planets and mining a mysterious element. Their invasion of Gallifrey, which should have been a huge event deserving of its own story, is limited to just two episodes. The re-introduction of Romana, also worthy of a separate release, feels sort of tacked on to this already overcrowded audio.

I was particularly annoyed that the story never really told how Romana got back from E-space and became president of the Time Lords. I assume it happened in one of the many novels published in the 1990s, but not all fans read them and a few words of explanation would have been in order.

There are quite a few things I like about this story though. I'm partial to Time Lord politics and there's a great scene where the Doctor encounters a bunch of Dalek mutants in zero gravity. There are a lot of good ideas here, but in the end the Apocalypse Element fails to deliver on its overly ambitious promises.

2.5 stars.
