3.0 out of 5 stars The Three Eighth Doctors 10 Feb 2005
By Jane Aland VINE VOICE
Since his exile to another universe at the end of Zagreus, the 8th Doctor's audio adventures have fallen into a boring formula during his extended quest to be reunited with the TARDIS, with every story bookended by taunts from the mysterious Kro'ka as the Doctor passes through the Interzone dividing the wildly differing regions of the planet he is stranded on. Thankfully the Doctor finally fights back in Caerdroia, and by the stories end has defeated the Kro'ka and won back his TARDIS, yet despite being so dependent on continuity that this story would be pointless for casual listeners to try, it frustratingly ends up telling us very little about the Kro'ka and the Divergents either.
The bulk of Caerdroia consists of a battle of wills between the Doctor and the Kro'ka in the sort of fantasy dreamscape that has been used dozens of times before in Doctor Who (most recently The Axis of Insanity), with the characters running around in circles as they encounter various threats. Curiously these threats are all very visual in nature, so rather than playing to audios strengths Lloyd Rose ends up highlighting it's weaknesses, and gags about being chased by monsters that no-one can be bothered to describe for the listener just do not work.
The one real highlight of this otherwise pedestrian release is Paul McGann, as thanks to his Doctor being split into three he gives three entirely separate performances, as joining the 'normal' 8th Doctor we also have a hopelessly optimistic 'Tigger' version and a more moody alien version. As with the Three Doctors they bicker constantly, which is great fun.
Caerdroia is a very lightweight romp, and quite fun in a mindless way - but as part of the ongoing adventures of the 8th Doctor in the Divergent Universe this is a major disappointment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes, good acting from a small cast... 5 Sep 2007
After the experimenting in Scherzo with just Paul and India having to carry the whole story together, which was bold and brave and for me actually worked extremely well, its good to get another similar play so soon.

This play only has the three main characters of The doc charley and c'rizz along with the great Stephen Perring as the Kroka and many would probably think this would turn out to be a dreary and dull piece of no interest at all. But theyd be wrong.

Some of my favourite audios ever ive realised have been written by gals, and heres a new great story from a gal, this time Lloyd Rose. Seems to me that shes a smart writer, making a four person play sound so cool and entertaining. Minotaur and maze bits are obviously taken from myths, but done in a new and fresh way. And Paul gets a chance to do more than usual on this audio too, which is nice. Hes brill.

So, yet another great play. What more can i say?

This is the sixty third 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 Charley and Conrad Westmaas as C'Rizz. This is the seventh of a series of adventures in the Divergent universe following the events of Zagreus, in which there is a story arc. Knowledge of some of these previous adventures will help with the enjoyment of this as it starts to bring the divergent saga to a close and explain a few things. 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.

After a series of adventures being passed from zone to zone by the Kro'ka, the Doctor is finally starting to get a handle on what is going on, and begins his fight back. This results in him, Charie and C'rizz being transported to the Caerdrioa zone, where things start to get very weird. An interesting series of adventures follows, as the Doctor works his way through the oddness to find what lies at the heart of the zone. It's one of the better adventures in the divergent saga, with some interesting ideas, a good sense of humour and a good use of the audio medium to present us with monsters that simply could not be realised on the screen. There is also some great acting, especially from McGann who is called upon to do some very tricky work showing three aspects of the Doctor at the same time and doing it superbly - it's just his voice, but you can hear three separate characters.

An excellent production all round, 5 stars.

Doctor Who: Caerdroia.
Doctor: Eighth Doctor.
Companion(s): Charley, C'rizz.
Main enemy: The Kro'ka.
Main setting: The Interzone and Caerdroia, the Divergent Universe.
Writer: Lloyd Rose.
Director: Gary Russell.
Release number: 63.
Format: 4 Episodes on 2 CDs.
Running time 100 minutes.

Cast.
The Doctor - Paul McGann.
Charley Pollard - India Fisher.
C'rizz - Conrad Westmaas.
The Kro'ka / Evans / Wayland - Stephen Perring.
Rassilon - Don Warrington.

Trivia.
1)The Doctor tells the Kro'ka that some of his "goofiest" incarnations have also been his sliest. He is seemingly referring to his second & fourth incarnations & possibly the original, light-hearted personality of his seventh incarnation.
2)The Doctor has the ability to enter another being's mind. While his morality usually stops him from doing so, his more pragmatic "Eeyore" personality has no compunctions about using it.
3)The Kro'ka has never shown himself to the Doctor, Charley & C'rizz.
4)The Kro'ka cannot transport the Doctor from one zone to another unless he is conscious.
5)The Kro'ka was not responsible for splitting the Doctor into three.
6)"Caerdroia" is the Welsh phrase for "the fortress of many turnings".
7)In cooperation with Big Finish, 'Tenth Planet' released this audio in a limited edition with a different cover, designed by Stuart Manning, during the Dimensions convention in early November. 'Tenth Planet' also sold the limited edition CD on their website.
8)This is the first Eighth Doctor audio drama to feature the TARDIS since its brief cameo in (Audio: The Twilight Kingdom) in March 2004. However, an illusory version of it appeared in (Audio: Faith Stealer).
