As Mega-City One plays host to the Global Justice Summit - a gathering of Chief Judges from around the world - the legacy of an enemy from the city's distant past returns to plague Judge Dredd and his new partner, Oz Judge Hogan; with a deadly fanatic cult on the rise, Dredd must face a dark reflection of himself and stem the tide of a raging holy war!...

The storyline for Jihad is short and simple, yet James Swallow manages to weave one of the series' most exciting plots - and certainly one of the most dramatic.

Teresa Gallagher delivers a very sexy Judge Hershey, Toby Longworth gives us by far the best Dredd ever vocalised, and Garrick Hagon's Jonah sounds like the best pantomime villain ever - no insult intended.

Production values, which for this series have always been high, seem to have been hitched up a notch for Jihad. Listen to it with headphones and wince as a bus full of children goes up in flames! And marvel as the sounds of Mega-City One come vividly to life.

Those who like their Dredd tongue in cheek may be a little disappointed, as there are few laughs in this episode. But, for me, this is part of the charm of this series - one episode is played for laughs, and the next full-on drama.

One of the best Dredd audio dramas released so far.
