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.

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....

I thoroughly enjoyed this tale. I adore storylines where they explore the inside machinations of the human brain. What I also liked about 'Red' is that there seemed to me to be an underlying message of how such advancements in technology can be harmful to the human condition - such as administering chips to curb their violence. I mean I got a message that good can never be so fully appreciated without, at the very least, knowing about/experiencing the bad, and that 'aesthetically' curbing a human's violent tendencies would seem to be a good idea, when in reality it is simply eradicating a portion of free-will *shrug* In my opinion, a stellar message if that was the author's intention :-)

One very quick side-step into the utter nonsensical: Sylvester McCoy's high pitched whinnying(?) when the Doctor was in a spot of bother was, for me, completely and utterly........... adorable - chuckle. I dunno, it simply brought a smile to my face every time *blush*

Aaanyway, *ahem*, great story, great effects and Sylvester's acting makes this one for me. Highly recommended.

:-)

Review.
Red is the colour of anger,Red Is the colour of envy, Red is the colour of blood.

The Tardis lands on a Alien world were to factions of society live one the poor slums & the other the high class rich elite whom human have had chips implanted inside there minds which stops there violent & aggressive impulses from occurring, But then why is it the people are being murdered & does anybody know why?.

As the chips are controlled by a master computer is someone tampering with the computer's programming to allow people to commit murder & why?

With the Doctor is separated from Mel as Mel becomes lost in the slums The Doctor begins to explore the higher class society whom live in the city's on this mysterious world.
