4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 10 May 2007
Format: Audio CD
A new series of audio doctor who stories, in which the actors who played the doctor's travelling companions read talking books telling untold stories of their characters time with the doctor. All are framed with interesting literary devices, which give a good reason as to why they are telling the tale.

Here, the second doctor's companion zoe, sometime after she left the tardis, tells a tale of her first meeting with the daleks, as they and a mad scientist threaten to spoil peace negotiations on an alien world.

Wendy Padbury reads this with great gusto and does a superb job. The story is a superb recreation of the second doctor's time, and it all feels that it fits the era so well as a result. The one problem with this is the length of the tale. The first - of two - parts is thirty five minutes long and really drags for the last ten. The last is better but as a result a decent story becomes a little too long for it's own good. It's got it's moments, though, and is worth listening to.

8 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Jane Aland VINE VOICE on 18 Feb. 2007
Format: Audio CD
One of the most heartbreaking moments of the original Doctor Who television series was when Zoe and Jamie had their memories of travelling with the Doctor erased on their departure, so it's nice to hear here an older Zoe beginning to regain her memories of the time, as she recounts this stand-alone story in Big Finish's new 'dramatized talking books' series. Sadly however the actual story, concerning the Daleks attempts to disrupt an alien peace conference by using Zoe as an unwilling assassin is very silly, featuring a bizarre Dalek plan centred on a device that sends 'solid astral projections' of characters elsewhere. It's lovely to hear Wendy Padbury reprise here role as Zoe, and the script contains plenty of amusingly in-character lines for the 2nd Doctor, but by focusing on the cheesiest aspects of 60's Doctor Who this ultimately comes across as a very childish and silly story, and the Daleks themselves lack any real menace here. Average at best.

One of the earliest, if not THE earliest, of the Companion Chronicles, this gives Wendy Padbury a chance to shine in a two-hander with Nicholas Briggs, who plays the Daleks.
It's a good, taut, thought-provoking radio play exploring the effect of Zoe's experiences with the Doctor and her subsequent brain-washing by the Time Lords. What happens when her memories begin seeping through..........?
Big Finish & Wendy Padbury returned to this idea with an excellent trilogy including "Echoes of Grey"; I'd highly recommend those stories but this one is worth listening to first.
