4. UNIT - Assembled
'About 4 years ago even the idea of a story like this would be something you could only dream about, The definitive classic meets new, loaded with many references and excellent story telling ' The Host Productions
'It’s a dynamic storyline in its own right that uses that background as a starting point to dig into what makes UNIT such an important part of Doctor Who’s history. ' We Are Cult
'UNIT Assembled offers Jemma Redgrave and Ingrid Oliver have the chance to round-out their characters. Osgood, especially, is exposed to a whole new set of challenges. Especially pleasing, though, is hearing Katy Manning turn in one of the best of many good performances for Big Finish. In fact, it may be one of her best Doctor Who performances ever. ' Cultbox
'This is a spectacular set. It does great credit and respect to the legacy characters they use. They aren’t just given token parts to play with weak excuses to ‘shoe-horn’ them in. Thought has gone into who they were and who they might now be and a good dose of the actors seems to creep in too. Finally I just have to praise the production team. Four magical stories from Matt Fitton and Guy Adams. Spot on direction and pacing from Ken Bentley who has ‘assembled’ a perfect cast. 10/10 ' Indie Mac User
Kate Stewart and her UNIT team investigate and confront alien attacks on the planet Earth. Something is stirring, an old foe to those in UNIT with a long memory. And fortunately, to face an old foe... There are old friends.

Mike Yates braves a stormy night in the Lakes to help celebrate a milestone for John Benton. An evening of fond reminiscences of old glories and friends awaits. But a long-buried past is about to catch up with them.
Meanwhile, on the rain-lashed moors, what begins as a routine mission for modern-day UNIT quickly becomes a fight for survival.

But a Silurian warrior is on their trail. Once she has the humans’ scent, Commander Tryska will never give up the hunt.
