It's interesting to watch the Big Finish line slowly begin to incorporate the new series into some of its stories, as is done here with "The Magician's Oath."

Former UNIT member Mike Yates is telling a story to a member of the new UNIT about the time the Doctor and company faced the mysterious Diamond Jack. Odd things were occurring around London, including the flash freezing of a popular park and the deaths of several hundred people. Upon investigation, Mike and Jo are led to the magician known

Mike Yates has been given a memento from a past adventure from Jo that he thinks UNIT should have. He tells a horrific story of mass murder, aliens, magicians, and magic. This is a good story and its nice to see Mike Yates portrayed well. You get a sense of closure from him about his UNIT time, and that is nice. It feels like a UNIT story with a huge budget that they could not do on TV. A good listen.

"Set at about the same period as Paul Magrs' novel Verdigris which I was reading at about the same time. Mike Yates tells the story of a magician who is sucking up all of London's energy. The plot is nothing terribly new; Richard Franklin does the voices adequately, as does Michael Chance playing the evil magician. Verdigris is better."
