Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
First released in 2007, this is the first 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.

The story opens with the Doctor being tried in court for parking offences in contemporary London. Suddenly the scene shifts and he is catapulted into 17th century London and to the tender mercies of Judge Jeffries. Meanwhile Lucie, who started on a shopping trip in 2008 finds herself dodging trams in 1917. Needless to say, something odd is going on, and when the Doctor finds out what it is he is opposed to it and sets out to stop whatever it is.

It's a tale with potential, but never really lives up to it. Somehow the threat to the Doctor and his friends never seems quite real, and the ending is all a bit too easy. A bit more dramatic tension would have helped things along. And The Doctor and Lucie are separated for much of the adventure, a real problem as it is their excellent chemistry together that really drove even the wesaker episodes of the first season. So much is the Doctor/Lucie relationship missed that the writers include a companion for the Doctor who is very much like Lucie in many respects.

Whatever the faults of the script, one cannot accuse the actors of giving anything less than 100%. McGann is having fun again as the Doctor, and here his tiggerish side is to the fore. Sheridan Smith is simply superb as Lucy, and Rupert Van Tissart gives an excellent villainous performance that is worthy of a much better script.

All in all, not a great attention grabbing series opener. It tries to be a bit different but forgets about the drama in the process. A weak tale that I rarely listen to, preferring to jump to Max Warp instead. 2 stars.

Format: Audio CD
First in the second series of doctor who audios featuring the eighth doctor and his new audio companion, feisty northern teenager lucie miller. As with the previous ones, this is a one part story complete in roughly forty five minutes, and there are fifteen minutes of interviews with the cast and crew right after that on the disc, followed by a trailer for the next in the series.

In this story, the doctor and lucie find themselves suddenly separated, and lost in london. but whilst the doctor is in medieval times facing death in the court of a nasty judge, lucie is trapped during the time of the first world war. And there's more to some of the people they come across than meets the eye. What's really going on here?

An entertaining little romp to start the new season with. A fun little script that gives great material to both of the lead actors - and some wonderfully big words in the dialogue that even the sixth doctor might not have used - and a story that is also rich in the sense of history of the capital. the pace does falter slightly towards the end and you will have to listen to the resolution carefully to get it straight in your mind, but a good little tale and really worth getting.

Following on from the previous 8th Doctor releases these again are 45 minute stories with the Eighth Doctor and new companion Lucie Miller (Sheridan Smith), this is the first in the return of that new series. While it's essentially an OK instalment I am left disappointed. While it did have a reasonable plot, it lacked much action and was a bit ambition for just 45 minutes, when the plot could well have pushed further on. However the interviews are quite interesting to listen to and the trailer for Max Warp has me interested, I fear that this series will disappoint after the previous 8th Doctor stories.
