4.0 out of 5 stars The Blood of the Daleks on the Hands of Others 26 Nov 2008
Format:Audio CD
This story is the first in the recent radio relaunch of Paul McGanns doctor, and what a story it is! Set in the colony of Red Rocket Rising a woman on the colony has contacted a race of aliens to assist the colonists - the Daleks. Then the doctor turns up and things get going...

The thing about Paul McGanns doctor is he doesn't seem too bothered about exterminating the daleks themselves, and this story hints at that, as his doctor advocates their destruction. However, this is not a bad thing necesarily as I find these stories somewhat more scary than the TV show, which is also good at horror.

There is great chemistry between the doctor and his new companion Lucie, and Tom Cardwell's role is played brilliantly. It makes for an exciting drama which leaves you clamouring for the conclusion.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic opening to the series 27 Jan 2008
Format:Audio CD
This is the first audio series of Doctor Who since the show's T.V. revival. Before getting it I saw the 'Big Finish' adventures as mere irritants, obsessed with unneccesarily complicating the series' continuity, but, deciding to have a go, I dutifully began listening. At once I was addicted. This tale begins with a surprised Lucie Miller materialising in the TARDIS. Bothrather surprised, she and the Doctor materialise in a devastated city, which is just about to be offered salvation by...dum dum dummmm...the Daleks. Naturally, our conical friends are up tono good, however, and so begins the tale...
Lucie (Smith) is a fantastic character, hyperactive, gobby butnot to the point of annoyingness. McGann, meanwhile, has much more character than in his T.V. appearance, having avery calming influence which contrasts Lucie perfectly. The script's also a treat, being original and thrilling with villains always at risk of becoming predictable and formulaic.
Oh, and themissing star's because at first it's a little hard to follow, but persevere! One of the top dalek stories of all time!

5.0 out of 5 stars return of the daleks and the eighth doctor 11 Oct 2007
By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
First in a new series of audio adventures for the eighth doctor who. set sometime after the ones featuring him and companion charley pollard. These are, like the current tv show, all forty five minute long episodes, one per disc. some are complete stories. and some are two parters. The companion in these is feisty northern girl lucie miller, played by actress sheridan smith. Lucie is an instantly appealing character and she and paul mcgann have a superb chemistry together which makes their scenes a delight to listen to.

There is an ongoing story throughout this series of audios which involves lucie and the reason she ended up in the tardis.

This story starts at blistering pace, with lucie and the doctor meeting and the tardis then landing on a new world all in the space of a few minutes. the planet has been devastated by a disaster, but they've had an offer of help. from a certain alien race....

A hugely entertaining audio, that moves at great pace, tells a very good and compelling story, and has some great performances from all the cast. It ends on a cliffhanger that leads into the second disc. And the disc concludes with ten to fifteen minutes worth of interviews with the cast, which are fun to listen to.

A really good audio drama and well worth getting

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Doctors. Brand New Adventures. 23 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Although Paul McGann only appeared in The TV Movie back in 1996, he does a tremendous job at expanding the Eighth Doctor's character within the Big Finish Audio Adventures.

Blood of the Daleks Pt. 1 kicks off The New Eighth Doctor Adventures which takes the Eighth Doctor (Paul McGann) to Red Rocket Rising with his new companion Lucie Miller (Sheridan Smith) who appears through mysterious circumstances. As the Eighth Doctor tries figuring out the mysteries around Lucie and why the Time Lords have dumped her upon him, he has to save acting President Eileen Clint (Anita Dobson) and her people from his greatest enemy: the Daleks. But with the Daleks acting all friendly, things do seem a bit off. What is there hidden agenda and what are the secrets behind Asha (Hayley Atwell) and her late masters inhuman experiments?

Nicholas Briggs (Director/Executive Producer) directs this story perfectly and really gives McGann the respect his under-appreciated incarnation deserves. Its the first in an entire series dedicated to just the Eighth Doctor and begins what seems to be a long epic journey which I can't wait to see through to the end. Also Steve Lyons (Writer) writes a brilliantly dark story which captures both McGann's character and the Daleks to a teat. There really is chemistry between the two entities and the story really progresses that as well as developing many interesting characters who all fit into the dark journey that is ongoing through the two-part story.
