5.0 out of 5 stars Guess who's back...Nimrod's back 26 Oct 2010
Format:Audio CD
The first of three 2010 Big Finish dramas to feature The Seventh Doctor, Ace and Hex is another accomplished and hugely enjoyable offering from Big Finish. The story twists and turns with a surprising and disturbing reveal that will leave at least one of the time-travellers shaken to the core.

The Seventh Doctor is firing on all cylinders here, Ace gets another opportunity to play soldier, and Hex is as gently bemused as ever. The travelling companions arrive in the middle of a fractured community and encounter an old adversary who appears to have been expecting them, whilst Hex fights for his life after sustaining a musket-ball wound during the TARDIS crews' previous adventures in Scutari.

Scott & Wright's script is terrific and the cast rise to it admirably. With excellent support from Stephen Chance as the icily subversive Nimrod, plus Maggie O'Neill and Philip Dinsdale, the three principals provide what is easily one of their best performances to date; the trilogy is also nicely set up at the end of disc two when a shocking truth is revealed and The Doctor seems to have been conducting his cosmic chess game again with devastating effects.

5.0 out of 5 stars When destinies collide 5 Oct 2010
By Tony Jones VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
And so the Doctor once more encounters the Forge and in particular Nimrod. Many years have passed both for the Forge and for Big Finish fans, in the interim we have worked out that Hex is in fact the son of Cassie Schofield mentioned in Project Lazarus and now about to meet his destiny (and more) as he finds out who his mother was and the role the Doctor played in her death.

The plot is another abandoned London, alien threat to the world (the Contaminants) and the usual friction between time-travellers and military. Largely formulaic though some good scenes for Ace and Hex when isolated from the others.

Curiously (and this may be an artefact of the recording sequence overall) this story happens before the seventh Doctor has been to the Forge in Project Lazarus so the narrative only refers back to the sixth Doctor portion of that story. Tricky but it does work.

I purchased this for closure of the Forge arc - I much prefer Colin Baker's Doctor to McCoy's (no offence intended) as the latter seems to spend too much time being angry. As a piece we have all the usual excellences of recording, music, sound effects and some wonderful extras giving some insight into just how this story finally made it to our ears. It does this and also tells a good story in its own right.

Overall a very good piece

5.0 out of 5 stars The Forge Trilogy Concludes On A High 16 Dec 2013
By Timelord007 TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Positive.
1)Gruesome & gritty,Tense & Nailbiting, Cavan Scott & Mark Wright deliver the final part of there Forge trilogy & end it with a excellent pay off.
2)Sylvester McCoy,Sophie Aldred & Phillip Oliver all give excellent performances here.
3)Nimrod & The Forge, Enough said!

Negative.
Only to listener's who haven't heard the previous two Forge storys Project Twilight & Project Lazarus this will make very little sense to you.

CD Info.
2xCD's of a 4 part story, Running Time 120 minutes,Trailer, Behind the scenes interviews.

Trivia.
1)Maggie'O'Neil as Captain Aristedes appears in this range for the first time as her character further appears in companion chronicles story Project Nirvana & main mange adventure Black & White.
2)The cliffhanger of the previous story The Angel Of Scutari continue into this adventure.
3)St Gart's was the hospital Hex worked as a nurse at when he met the Doctor in the main range story The Harvest.
4)The events here are set before Project Lazarus in the Seventh Doctor's timeline but are set in the present day for Nimrod.
5)Death In The Family follows on straight after this adventure.

Review.
Hex has been shot & The Doctor lands the Tardis on Earth in the year 2026 at St Gort's hospital but the hospital is abandoned due to a alien contagion outbreak.

Nimrod now has been knighted & The Forge are working to restore normality to the general public in a attempt to find a cure for the contagion but as Hex is treated for his gunshot wound the Doctor who has been infected seems to be mutating into something more sinister.

5.0 out of 5 stars Project: Destiny 16 Oct 2013
By Keen Reader TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This story fits in at the end of a trilogy of stories connecting the Forge and Nimrod - Project: Twilight and Project: Lazarus. The first story featured the Sixth Doctor and Evelyn, the second story featured the Sixth Doctor and then moved to action featuring the Seventh Doctor. In this story, the story picks up directly from The Angel of Scutari, and the Seventh Doctor, Ace and Hex are in London to get Hex fixed up after he has been shot with a musket (see previous story). But London is not as any of them remember it; and the Doctor's about to meet someone he would rather he didn't - again.

This is a good story; it features on several levels - there's the story of the contaminants and the situation in London; as well as the story overarcing these three stories, of the work of Nimrod and the Forge; and the story of Hex's background, which the listener already knows and the Doctor knows and Nimrod would like to let Hex know about. So there's a lot going on - actionwise, psychological-wise etc. The Doctor gets to play good guy and bad guy, Ace gets to run around shooting things, and Hex gets to do the deep thinking thing. It's all good.

The characters are well drawn out in this story, and I absolutely love the evil Nimrod as played by Stephen Chance; his voice is chilling and the character suitably nasty - even in an audio story you can imagine what he looks like. There's definitely enough to keep anyone interested in this story, and when you pin it on the end of Project: Twilight and Project: Lazarus the trilogy is very satisfying indeed.

The end of this story is an ending indeed, but also does open up a lovely opportunity for more from the Forge - I like that, and look forward to more.
