Recap / Big Finish Doctor Who 009 The Spectre Of Lanyon Moor

The Sixth Doctor is reunited with his friend, the now-retired Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, at an archeological research centre in Cornwall. Previous attempts at excavating the moor and its fogou have been abandoned on account of an unearthly presence, driving the workmen to madness or even death. The legendary spectre of Lanyon Moor is more than it seems, and after eighteen thousand years of imprisonment, he is preparing to take his revenge on the entire Earth.

While the Doctor and the Brigadier try to race against the alien's human lackeys, Evelyn (in the grand tradition of Doctor Who companions) wanders off and gets herself kidnapped. She escapes and rejoins the plot in time to see the alien's revenge plan unfolding. The Brigadier decides to make a Heroic Sacrifice to stop the alien, rather effortlessly outthinking it — but as usual, it doesn't take and he survives.
