The War Doctor Vol. 4: Casualties of War: The Lady of Obsidian:
Penultimate episode.
The said lady is Leela and here she meets the War Doctor.
Written by Andrew Smith.
An intriguing episode in which Leela makes her entrance in the War Doctor series.
The fact that Leela is seeing the Doctor with a face she hasn't seen before would only be part of the problems that presents itself here.
The way that the War Doctor reunites with his old companion Leela was satisfactorily done and in the midst of the usual problems with the Daleks amongst other things.
When Leela is back in the TARDIS was certainly pleasing.

SJA alum Anjili Mohindra has a guest stint in season 42 but not as her SJA character Rani:

Curiously this renunites her with Bradley Walsh (Graham) who had played the villain in her debut SJA story Day of the Clown.

Normality:
Normality is an original short story published in the Heroes and Monsters collection.
Featuring the Eleventh Doctor. and Clara.
Not bad presenting Clara as a teacher at Coal Hill during her time with the Eleventh Doctor.
Not bad story as the Doctor and Clara finds something called the Tonnchenform..

Order of the Daleks:

Order of the Daleks is an audio story from Big Finish.

Featuring the Sixth Doctor and Constance.

Written by Mike Tucker, directed by Jamie Anderson and released in November 2016.

This is Tucker's fourth Big Finish Doctor Who story, his first Big Finish with the Daleks since his first Big Finish Doctor Who, The Genocide Machine in 2000 and his first Big Finish with a Doctor other than the Seventh Doctor.

Guest stars John Savident and Olivia Hallinan.

Savident had appeared briefly at the start of the Fifth Doctor TV story The Visitation playing the Squire.

Order of the Daleks has Savident in a more substantial role of Pendle and hearing his voice here was very distinctive.

Hallinan had appeared in Torchwood in Out of Time playing Emma.

In Order of the Daleks she plays Asta.

Order of the Daleks has Constance meeting Daleks for the first time.

However it is not the first time that Miranda Raison, who plays Constance, has met the Daleks.

She previously met the Daleks in TV's Daleks In Manhattan/Evolution of the Daleks and Big Finish's The Davros Mission, each as different characters.

Order of the Daleks is an interesting story that has Daleks in the midst of monks in the world of Strellin.

There is one thing that I found rather perplexing in its inclusion and and that is the line of "Resistance is futile", a line that is well known by the Borg from Star Trek as I am not sure that it fits here.

The DVD for Sleep No More has a subtitle for Female Electronic Voice.
Why emphasise that the voice is female.
If it was voiced by a man would it have said Male Electronic Voice.

4 x 27 - The Macra Terror Episode 1:
This is the animated version of The Macra Terror.
Didn't notice it until I read about it afterwards that this the animated first episode lacks the Rough and Tumble scene.
Perhaps the animators found this too much of a challenge to re-create especially the beauty treatment on the Doctor.
Quite a shame that this scene could not be re-created.
During that scene, Polly had her hair cut but for this the animated version her hair was already cut when the story started.
Fascinating that the Doctor, Ben, Polly and Jamie found themselves in the Colony after foiling an attack by one of its residents Medok.
All seems very happy but the Doctor begins to believe Medox that something is indeed very wrong with the Colony.
Very good how this all builds up to the Macra at the cliffhanger.
