      The three Road Trip audios take Bernice Summerfield, played as ever by Lisa Bowerman, to the edge of the universe in a quest for her son; they are fairly separate narratives (indeed, one mild frustration is that plot threads between the three are not really connected at all) which are reasonably penetrable even for listeners who have not previously encountered Benny, though the end of the third and final play is pretty heavy on continuity. All also feature actors who have appeared in televised W [...]

      Brand management, Benny was in high form but the plot of this one wasn't really the best. It was a good idea but it just felt a little short. A fascist planet which idolises Benny. It should probably have been funnier than it was.Bad Habits, Space nuns another setting which should be quite funny for Benny but I find I miss the old setting and her old companions. Benny is as relentless as normal but something is just missing from this one. Wasn't it established earlier that in the future they wor [...]

      It's entertaining and I enjoyed the overall arc but it didn't flow from EPOCH well enough. At the end of EPOCH we learn of a different Brax, that Peter is there, and that is where they are headed. For all intents and purposes, EPOCH ends as if it were flowing right into LEGION. Instead, we are at Road Trip and the first story takes quite a while to establish the reason for time between the EPOCH boxset and the LEGION boxset. With that confusion, I went back and checked that I was starting the co [...]

      Three quite different stories, all of which are enjoyable for different reasons. A few digs (excuse the pun) at various things along the way especially in Brand Management and Bad Habits, which is something this series is good at. Listening out of order so have already listened to 'Legion' so know what happens next but that didn't take away from the enjoyment of this box set.

      As usual, great voice work from Lisa Bowerman, and a fun guest-voice turn from Arthur Darvill. The stories are a bit of a let-down. They feel like fillers, and I presume that's exactly what they were.

      Benny and Ruth travel around trying to get to Legion so they can get home.
