1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Victor HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 14 Mar. 2013
Format: Audio CD
This is the hundred and first release from Big Finish in their range of full cast audio adventures starring classic Doctor Whos. It stars Paul McGann as Eight, India Fisher as Charlie and Conrad Westmaas as C'rizz. There are 4 episodes, roughly 25-30 minutes each, complete with original theme music between each, and cliff hanger endings. Two episodes per disc on 2 discs, and a short booklet with some pictures of the cast and production notes.

When Charlie's curiosity leads her to open one of C'rizz's relics, and release somethings that would have been better kept locked away, The Doctor, Charlie and C'Rizz are transported to a world that seems right out of the imagination of Hieronymus Bosch, with scenes right out of hell. C'Rizz falls under the spell of the charming Aboresh, who starts teaching the Eutermisan the ways of the Force (sorry, I mean the full potential of his psychic abilities) in a series of Yoda like lessons. But does he have a darker purpose and an evil use in mind for the impressionable C'Rizz? The Doctor and Charlie find themselves in a fortress, where life is strangely medieval, but there are definite signs of very advanced technology. And just what does Cocothis not want the Doctor to see in the cellar?

This is a bit odd for a farewell story in that it keeps the character that we are saying goodbye to out of the story for most of its running time. This is a blessing, as it concentrates on the Doctor and Charlie, and recaptures some of the old spirit between the two, before all the emoting (what is it with all the d@mned emoting in more recent Dr Who?

Format: Audio CD
another audio adventure for the eighth doctor who, and his companions charley pollard and c'rizz. This story follows on from the earlier one memory lane and takes place before the series of adventures featuring the eighth doctor and lucie miller.

It's a four part story, each episode running for twenty five minutes. In this tale, a mishap in c'rizz's room on the tardis plunges the tardis crew into deadly danger, as they travel into a very strange place further than they've ever gone before. The doctor and charley end up in a citadel where a group of people struggle to keep back invaders from beyond, and meantime c'rizz, separated from them, is being taught by a strange man to use his mental abilities to their full potential, and to punish wrongdoers. Can the doctor and his friends get back to the world they know? And what are the hidden secrets of this place?

And will everyone make it home?

An interesting story. It exists to tie up a few loose ends in the range, but it also manages to be a good story in it's own right. There is a lot going on here, though, and you may need to listen to it more than once to get everything straight. The supporting cast and characters could be rather cliched, but do manage to rise above that. The three regulars are absolutely excellent, paul mcgann getting some wonderful dialogue that he delivers with relish. And you won't forget some of what happens to charley and c'rizz here anytime soon.

each disc ends with the usual interviews with the cast. be aware that those on the first disc do give away a few things about episodes three and four, so you may want to save them till later.

An interestingly different audio. Not the easiest one to get into, but it has lots to recommend it.

Format: Audio CD
The Tardis breaks down in a forbidden sector of space and The Doctor and his companions are again separated and plunged into different situations.
This is the story where C'rizz finally realises his potential and the somewhat duplicitous Utermesan becomes the focal point of the story for the first time. For fans of Conrad Westermass' flat and emotionless portrayal of the character this is a treat, however for those who find the character dull and irksome this is one to miss. Charley, The Doctor's female Edwardian companion is somewhat sidelined here and Paul McGann relies too heavily on this regeneration's vague foppishness for my liking. The presentation of the 101st Big Finish Doctor Who adventure is as sumptuous as faithful listeners have come to expect but the package feels somewhat lifeless. Never mind, fans of the Eighth Doctor will at least see a change in his crew shortly which will hopefully shake things up a bit at least...

C'rizz's story 3 Oct. 2009
By Celeste Chang - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
We finally get to hear all about C'rizz, as the TARDIS crew gets dragged off to Hell, or the closest Who-niverse equivalent (you can always find some mad scientists to blame). We learn why C'rizz hears the voices of those he's killed and why he wants to "save" everyone, as he takes center stage as a psychic messiah. The details are not all that surprising, as we've been hearing hints about it all along. (A similar concept was done much better in a new Who episode, and I rarely say that!) We have a standard post-apocalyptic city-besieged-by-crazy-mutants/cultists/giant monster and the usual "Ignorance is bliss" vs "Knowledge is freedom" dynamic going on inside the city. The Doctor doesn't get to do very much in this story. Pokes around a bit, stirs things up, rigs up some technobabble devices when required. Also uses the ancient Gallifreyan technique of "Go outside and shout!"

It wasn't bad. I just wasn't very interested. C'rizz takes his turn in the stark-raving-bonkers seat, but it's still C'rizz. I've never liked the character very much. He's Kamelion-lite, changing loyalties every time you turn your head, but otherwise basically dull. "Woe is me! I killed my beloved!" Ok, we get it. At least he's not played by a laughably bad robot. I think he's at his best in his scenes with Charley

The ending...the ending leads into the next story, Dr Who the Girl Who Never Was CD (Dr Who Big Finish). In order to force the lead-in to that story, the Doctor acted in what I felt was an out of character way. Yes, it was probably meant to shock the listener, but I don't feel it was consistent with what we know of the Doctor from previous stories. It's possible to shock the listener and still be perfectly in character and believable (Scherzo (Doctor Who), for example), but this moment really jarred me out of it. The rest of the scene worked well, however.

So... "Absolution is what you do best, C'rizz! You can save them all!" Worth a listen, but "The Girl Who Never Was" is better.
A so so sendoff 16 May 2009
By Peter Ingemi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Absolution is really part of a pair of stories that lead from the Charley/C'rizz era to the Lucy Era independent of the primary Doctor series.

The primary purpose of the plot is to resolve the Character of C'rizz. The veichle used is a vision of hell and C'rizz being used and manipulated in order to open the gates so to speak.

Add to that a scientific obsession and a secret and you get the makings of...an entirely cliched and predictable story. This is pretty sad since the previous 8th doctor story Memory lane was so strong.

The significant point is not so much death of a primary character but it is the Doctor's seemingly cavalier attitude to it that shocks Charley. It is a side of the 8th doctor we saw in Scherzo (Doctor Who) yes the opposite of what we saw in Seasons of Fear (Doctor Who)

This leads directly the events of the far superior Dr Who the Girl Who Never Was CD (Dr Who Big Finish). That makes this story vital for the series.

For that reason and the performances of the cast this audio is a necessary addition to your collection, but don't get your hopes too high.
