Plot Synopsis.
It's like The Village That Time Forgot! The inhabitants of the quiet seaside town of Thorington in Suffolk are living the same day over & over again, Just what is so special about the 1st of September 1991? Why haven't the villagers noticed that the same song has been number one for years? Why do people keep disappearing? Who are inside the Armoured Trucks? & just where on Earth has the sea disappeared to?

The Doctor & Lucie must solve the mystery before the 'visitors' return...

Timelord Thoughts.
While the story hardly breaks new ground writer in it's initial concept writer Jonathan Clements has delivered here a tightly paced tension filled audio adventure here that kept this reviewer intrigued & held my attention from beginning to end.

First released in 2007, this is the third episode of a of the second season of standalone releases for Paul McGann's Eighth Doctor outside of the monthly range of Big Finish releases. This is a one disc release, with a single 50 minute episode. There are some interviews with cast and crew at the end of the disc.

This is another really fun release for Paul McGann's tiggerish Eighth Doctor and Sheridan Smith's resourceful and fun Lucie Miller. Jonathan Clements has devised a script that has a lot of humour and great one liners, but at it's heart there is a real darkness, and a great situation that really challenges the Doctor.

The TARDIS lands in 2008. But just why do the locals in the seaside town think that it is 1991? And where is the sea? And why do people keep disappearing? And who is in the armoured trucks?

This is a story that plays with expectations. I was expecting some sort of time-loop timey-wimey story of the sort we have heard before, but just as I thought I had the tale nailed down the plot twisted away from me. And at every turn just as I thought I had a handle on the story I was proved wrong. After listening to nearly two hundred Dr Who adventures on audio it is a rare story that can play with my expectations and seem so original these days. The cast obviously realise that the script is a cracker, and give it their all, especially the principles, who continue to impress as one of the best TARDIS crews ever.

An excellent adventure, mixing fun with darkness and presenting the Doctor with a real problem. 5 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly haunting 24 May 2009
By Tony Jones VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Without giving away the superb plot twists, this is a multi-layered story showing once again how it is the small things that make the strangest stories - you don't need to always be in the big cities to tell a big story.

Set (amongst other things) in a mysterious sea-side resort stuck in the 80s, with the fall of communism as a back drop and the most unusual newspaper round, you find yourself reflecting back on this story many months later and revel in the treatment of an alien previously used only as a baddie!

4.0 out of 5 stars bryan adams forever 31 Mar 2008
Format:Audio CD
another audio adventure for paul mgcann's doctor who and his current companion, feisty northern girl lucie miller, played by sheridan smith. Like all the others in this current run this is a one part story complete in just over forty five minutes.

The story involves the tardis arriving in a small town in sussex. and the tardis crew quickly find all is not right. tims is standing still here, and nothing has changed since 1991. A local girl has gone missing.

What is the mystery of the town?

and the armored personnel carriers that keep appearing.

Not going to say too much about the plot because you won't immediately suspect what is going on here and it's a real pleasure to see how this story unfolds, taking a good few twists and turns on the way. long term fans will find a novel use of something established here that will appeal. The supporting cast are all very good, and again one of the strengths of these is the superb chemistry paul mcgann and sheridan smith have together. lucie does get a little sidelined in the second half of the story into the more usual companion role of making comments and asking questions but she does it so well she's still very appealing.

There's no story arc - yet - in this current batch of audios so you can pick it up without having listened to the previous ones.

as usual the disc ends with 19 minutes of interviews with cast and crew, and a trailer for the next story in the range.

and to avoid spoilers you might want to not read the inlay till after hearing the story, as there is something there in one comment that could give things away.

another fun entry in an enjoyable range

5.0 out of 5 stars Big Finish Adventure, Doctor Who 25 Sep 2010
By BONBLU330 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"Brave New Town" is the first one of the Big Finish Productions that I listened to, and it seemed enjoyable; in fact, I prefer the audio dramas better than somebody reading a book to me! And it also features Paul McGann as Doctor #8 and he is one actor that was hardly on the television screen, outside of the others, so the dramas are a treat for me. I have collected quite a few others since this one and despite what others might rate some of them, I rate all of them GREAT!!!
