Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
First released in 2006, this is the third episode of a of the first standalone series for Paul McGann's Eighth Doctor outside of the monthly range of Big Finish releases. This is a one disc release, with a single 50 minute episode. There are some interviews with cast and crew at the end of the disc.

This series got off to a cracking start with the two part `blood of the Daleks' and it keeps its foot firmly on the throttle here. The Doctor and Lucy land near a motorway services in the middle of the night in the mid seventies. The services are infested with glam rockers on their way to and from gigs and appearances on Top of the Pops. There is an infestation of another sort, and could that be linked to one of the more spaced out rockers?

It's remarkable that the producers manage to pack so much into 50 minutes. There is suspense, action and excitement, some really great characters who all get a good share of the action and a really great image of the time and place. It also has a very welcome turn from the immortal Bernard Cribbins as a single minded impresario determined to get his latest act to London in time for their big moment. Throw into the mix Una Stubbs as the world's most imperturbable dinner lady and Stephen Gately as a nascent glam rocker working along side Paul McGann's Eight and Sheridan Smith's Lucie and you have a great cast who really deliver. Especially Cribbins who towards the end has some really powerful scenes. And it's nice to see the Eighth Doctor having a bit of fun for a change.

It's fast, it's fun, it has a T-Rexed version of the Dr Who theme music at the end. It's a great release. 5 stars.

i bought this cd after finding out about Stephen Gately taking part and having been a fan of the recent tv show with David Tennant.

i thoughly enjoyed it, even though i have never bought an audio cd before. it was so well done it feels like a show without the visual. the sound effects and music add to the feel of the episode.

the cd comes with interviews with the cast of the drama and the song "Children Of Tommorow" sung by Stephen Gately and Clare Buckfield.

Whilst looking for a bite to eat, the Doctor and Lucie arrive at a Motorway Service Station on the M62 during a terrible blizzard. Also en-route to the Service Station is star-making music manager, Arnold Korns, and his latest signings, Trisha and Tommy Tomorrow, ready to make their debut on Top of the Pops. However, outside in the snow and darkness is a dangerous threat - a pack of alien monsters that threaten to bring a sudden halt to the careers of these fledgling Glam Rockers...

The idea of a remote Service Station under siege by alien creatures is very reminiscent of the classic `base under siege' storylines that were used during the Second Doctor's era such as: The Moonbase, Fury from the Deep and The Ice Warriors. Unfortunately, the story doesn't have the benefit of a multi-part serial to build up the suspense and instead, throws itself straight into the action and is finished within the hour, which is the equivalent of a two episode storyline in the classic series. As a result the story felt like a mish-mash of `Classic Who' storytelling, mixed with the format and modern approach of the current series, similar to recent stories like Cold War.

We're quickly introduced to the cast of supporting characters: Flo, Pat, Arnold Korns, Trisha and Tommy Tomorrow, as well as a few extras who are effectively `Monster Meals' with several lines. Each of the characters was easily identifiable by their voices, which is something that can cause issues if several characters sound similar to each other. I really liked the character of Arnold Korns, played well by Bernard Cribbins who managed to chew on the audio scenery when on-air.
