    Short personal review: I thought The Cannibalists was a lot of fun with lots of shouting. Big Finish did a great job at making you feel for the characters the Doctor meets. The Scapegoat was perfectly creepy. They should play this one on midnight at Halloween. The other two stories don’t really stick in my mind.
