5. Vienna: Retribution
9/10 "For those who haven’t listened to anything with Vienna, ‘Retribution’ is the time to change that. Chase Masterson is just superb. From her very first scene she expertly brings Vienna to life. The writing is top notch and, over the course of three episodes, Guy Adams weaves a brilliant tale that director Scott Handcock effortlessly brings to life." Blogtor Who
9/10 “Clever, funny, nasty and morally complex, this is the best season of Vienna so far. It’s also a great entry point so if you want a story you can get your teeth into, start here.” SciFi Bulletin
"In some ways this set is the audio equivalent of a classic 2000 AD comic strip, all vivid action, extraordinary characters, rich settings and tucked away those flourishes that lift the work beyond the good into the brilliant." Cultbox
"Chase Masterson and Samantha Béart put Vienna and Jexie through the wringer beautifully. Their performance layers had performance layers." SciFi Pulse
"Vienna: Retribution is not simply an absolute blast; it’s a sharp, smart story that deals with very pertinent issues, such as the nature of justice and the reform of our penal systems. And it’s the lack of absolutes in this story that make it so riveting: when you’re only dealing with shades of grey, you never know which way things are going to flip-flop next. This is one you definitely don’t want to miss." Massmovement

Vienna Salvatori used to be an assassin.
Vienna Salvatori has changed her ways.
