5.0 out of 5 stars red...RED...RRRRRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEED! 4 Sep 2007
Format:Audio CD
A totally awesome and powerful voice on the stupidity and wastefulness of violence. Well, one might think this wouldnt be a very nice subject to try and get across, but here Stewart Sheargold does a fantastic job of creating a believable story with real menace and horror. Red is the colour of anger, and Sylvester Mccoy is brilliant on this audio. And Bonnie again doesnt have to scream but instead is a good and strong character who gets plenty to do in a rip roaring tale that left me wanting a sequel straight away. This story has no let down moments at all, its strong from the start to the finish. Big Finish are aptly named...99% of their audios are brilliantly polished and well performed productions, and this story is up there at the top with the Reaping and The Gathering and Frozen Time...yet another brilliant story dripping with atmosphere....

5.0 out of 5 stars RED, RED, RRRRRED! 16 April 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the best Big Finish audio play for ages. There has been a recent trend to reflect the new TV series (very blatantly in "The Gathering" and "The Reaping") which I think is a bad move, but thankfully this play doesn't do that. I hated Mel on TV and loved Ace, but this is infinitely better than those early McCoy/Ace audios. Mel makes a decent companion and Sylvester McCoy is on great form (if a bit different from his TV days, I detect more of a New Adventures influence again). This is a dark adventure, which immediately sets it above from the lighter comic romps for me. It has a great atmosphere and pulls the listener in to a well-realised future society, laying on the tension and creating a desire to find out what is happening and what is going to happen. Plus it deals intelligently with the current issues of censorship and violence, making it a great slice of science fiction. It's that whole effective combination which makes this so good. In fact it's right up there with `...ish' in my estimation.

2.0 out of 5 stars Red: Made me see rrrrrred 18 Feb 2013
By Victor HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the eighty fifth release from Big Finish in their range of full cast audio adventures starring classic Doctor Whos. It stars Sylvester McCoy as Seven, Bonnie Langford as Mel and Sandi Toksvig as the would be hedonist Vi Yulquen. There are 4 episodes, roughly 30-35 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.

Seven and Mel arrive in a society where everyone has a chip in their heads, controlled by a computer that removes their criminal impulses and creates a perfect society. So why are people being murdered? And why does no one know about it?

I have to confess that, despite popular opinion, I was underwhelmed by this story. The set up feels a little over familiar, The Doctor and Mel land in a towerblock where strange things are happening (a-la Paradise Towers), and other ideas feel recycled, for example the menace being locked in a mind and jumping from person to person was used very recently in Something Inside and the Doctor battling a supercomputer trying to outwit it goes back to the War Machines and William Hartnell. However, the series is 50 years old, and there are only so many ideas, so it is only to be expected that there will be some recycling. When this happens a bit of clever story telling is required to make it stand out rather than feel tired. Unfortunately that is not present here.

The script made little sense to me. I just didn't get what the menace was, or why it connected with the Doctor. In fact the script seemed little more than an excuse to get Sylvester McCoy to roll his r's a lot.
