4.0 out of 5 stars Another Celebratory Release 30 Dec 2008
Following on from 100, Forty-Five is Big Finish's latest release this time celebrating the 45th Anniversary of Doctor Who. Like 100 this is made up of 4 single part episodes, each by new authors to the Big Finish range. While it's a nice introduction to each of the authors works. I'm hesitant to say that giving a one-part story like this is the best way to do it.

The first episode is False Gods by Mark Morris (recognisable as a writer for the books range). The idea is quite nice, but is brought to a conclusion rather abruptly. It could have filled out a bit more time I expect, unfortunately it only had the one part

The next story is Order of Simplicity by Nick Scovell. It's quite an interesting idea, but the science hangs together rather loosely... nonetheless a nice idea.

Casualties of War is the next episode, possibly the weakest plot of them all. Yet having said that there is some very interesting character development with Ace and Hex - dropping some considerable hints hopefully to be explored later and with a great concluding line.

The Word Lord concludes the release, this is perhaps the strongest albeit most ridiculous story. Set in the near future, the number 45 seems to be everywhere in a top secret diplomatic bunker and a seemingly impossible being is up to no good.

With such a wide cast/authorship this has some of the best interviews I've heard and are well worth listening to. All in all nothing to mark it out, distinctly average.

This is the hundred and fifteenth release from Big Finish in their range of full cast audio adventures starring classic Doctor Whos. It stars Sylvester McCoy as Seven, Sophie Aldred as Ace and Philip Olivier as Hex. This is another of the anthologies of four stories that Big Finish are wont to produce to mark anniversaries, and this marks forty five years since Ian and Barbara first followed the mysterious Susan home to a junkyard and a mysterious blue box. There are four episodes, roughly 25-30 minutes each, complete with original theme music between each. Two episodes per disc on 2 discs, and a short booklet with some pictures of the cast and production notes. There are some interviews with cast and crew at the end of each disc.

Each of the episodes is a self contained adventure but linked by the number forty-five featuring prominently in each. The four episodes are:

False Gods - An interesting start to the set, the Doctor Ace and Hex wind up in the presence of the great Howard Carter on an archaeological exploration in Egypt, some years before the dig that would make him famous. The piece ends with a rather dramatic and moving scene, which allows Sylvester McCoy to show just what Seven is all about with a rather fine piece of acting that evokes both rage and sorrow. It's a good story, enhanced byt the presence of Benedict Cumberbatch as Carter.

Order of Simplicity - Probably the weakest story in the set. Seven, Ace and Hex answer a mysterious signal with a code hidden in it. They are soon up to their eyeballs in a gothic mystery full of mad scientists and frightening creatures. It's OK, but not as satisfying as the others on the set.

Casualties Of War - A perfect piece.
