4.0 out of 5 stars trouble at the top 25 Dec 2008
this is the latest release in the third season of doctor who: the companion chronicles. a series of talking books in which an actor who played a companion to doctor who on tv returns to their role to read a new story of an adventure for the companion and their doctor. the usual format of these is to have a story complete on one disc, in two long episodes, with the performer reading the story in character, and another voice actor performing one other role in the story.

this time it's the turn for deborah watling to reprise the role of victoria waterfield, who she played alongside patrick troughton's doctor in the 1960's. her particular era of the show is famous for what they called 'base under siege' stories, and this is a homage to that style. the tardis crew visit near future earth, where a huge elevator based in sumatra leads all the way up to a space station high above. something has taken over the station, and it has deadly plans for earth. can the doctor save the day?

this succeeds very well indeed at recreating the style of the era, with cold scientist characters in a futuristic base, and some scary moments from a nasty monster. all the regular characters are very well written indeed and well in character. deborah watling reads the story playing victoria as a lady of mature years, and she has a good voice that's nice to listen to. usually in this series the reader has tried to impersonate the voice of the other characters, but she doesn't do that here, and that works perfectly well because they're written so well in character that it's not a problem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Scream and scream again! 15 April 2009
A very solid addition to the Companion Chronicles range. Deborah Watling effortlessly recaptures the role of Victoria and the whole story has a very authentic Troughton era flavour. Especially recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Victoria's Secret 26 Dec 2009
By Peter Ingemi - Published on Amazon.com
The second Doctor's companion Victoria Waterfield stars in her first Companions Chronicles adventure as she tells the tale of her adventure with The Doctor and Jamie on the Great Space Elevator.

The three arrive in Sumatra in the far future the site of the Great Space elevator used to transport items to a weather control station in geosynchronous orbit. As these are the days before the Doctor carried Psychic paper they are of course noticed by security and apprehended.

The Doctor after fixing a problem at the station gets involved noticing an issue and he Victoria and Jamie are off into orbit where then encounter a danger to (surprise)the entire human race.

Debra Wattling tells the story well and makes the keeps the story flowing and Helen Goldwyn as the security chief does an admirable job as security chief Tara Kerley.

As the 2nd doctor only has 4 living actors who were companions to him expect to see more of Debra and Victoria in the future, or past. That will not be a bad thing.

One minor note for some reason the full title of this adventure isn't in the Amazon listing and there is a parallel one Dr Who Companion Chronicles 3.2 Great (Dr Who Big Finish Companions)with the darkening eye's cover on it (in automotive of all things). I don't know why this is the case, but since Amazon doesn't sell it directly I'd be sure that this is what you are buying before you do.
