Legend of the Cybermen is the third in a loosely linked Sixth Doctor series, also featuring the return of erstwhile travelling companion Jamie, whom the Time Lords returned to his own time before forcing Patrick Troughton's Second Doctor to regenerate. There are even more surprises in store than the revelation of where the TARDIS has brought them this time, and the whole play consequently feels warm and nostalgic. That's not to say that the story is bogged down in continuity however, but a new listener could do worse than check out the DVD Doctor Who - The Mind Robber  [DVD] before listening to this.
Big Finish's consistently excellent production values, coupled with appropriate incidental music and a host of great lines make this an audio adventure well worth investing in; go on, you know you want to...
Oh wow. Is this the best release ever from Big Finish? I think so.
Following the magnificently epic and thrilling `City of Spires' and `Wreck of the Titan', and the revelation that the Doctor and Jamie are back in the Land of Fiction, we are now thrust headlong into the best realised, most imaginative and most entertaining adventure in the history of the Doctor. To quote Fu Manchu, `prepare to be wiped out!' It's a complete mind warp.
I can't even begin to summarise the plot, other than to say the Cybermen are trying to take over the Land of Fiction fro their own nefarious ends, and it is up to the Doctor, Jamie and (in another very welcome surprise that is heralded by the picture on the front cover) Wendy Padbury as Zoe Herriot to stop their dastardly plans.
The script gets ever more inventive and fun, as the writer explores the possibilities of the cyberconversion of literary characters. It is fun to hear classic lines quoted by cybermen (as in `Time Of The Daleks', where we got to hear Daleks quoting Shakespeare) and to imagine the end result of a cyber-converted Moby Dick.Read more ›
This story picks up straight from the end of The Wreck of the Titan, and the Doctor and Jamie are somewhere they have been before; but, of course, Jamie doesn’t remember. They find themselves once again in the Land of Fiction, where the Second Doctor, with Jamie and Zoe, fought the Master of the Land of Fiction once before. But this time it’s different; the creations of fiction don’t seem to be playing by the rules that they once had to follow; who are they fighting, and why; and who is the mysterious Mistress who now rules the Land of Fiction, and why has nobody ever seen her?
This is a wonderful story, full of nostalgia and references to Doctor Who scattered throughout. It’s absolutely marvellous to get a story, and indeed a whole trillogy with the Doctor with his old friend Jamie. And in this story, we even get to have the Doctor and Jamie’s former companion Zoe Herriot back again as well.Read more ›
The first two parts of this trilogy felt as if they were all set up for something bigger. And the cliffhanger ending to wreck of the titan certainly confirmed that. Those who know their Doctor who continuity will get more out of this story than those who don't. And there are also some very clever bits of self reference and fourth wall breaking that will also appeal to fandom.
If you've not heard the earlier parts of the trilogy go and get them before listening to this.
But if you have, then you'll find a story that was more than worth waiting for.
The four episodes, spread over two discs, run twenty nine to thirty five minutes each. They see the Doctor battling his old enemies the Cybermen in a place that is rather familiar. They see him have reunions.Read more ›
