5.0 out of 5 stars Doctor Who Does Threads 29 May 2014
By Timelord007 TOP 500 REVIEWER
CD Info.
4 episodes.
Running time 120 minutes approx.

Trailer for Black & White.
Behind the scenes interviews.
Incidental score.

1)The Doctor is absent from a fair portion of this audio adventure as Sylvester McCoy was filming The Hobbit during this story's recording.
2)Ian Hogg played Josiah Samuel Smith in Seventh Doctor tv story Ghostlight.
3)The character of Peggy Marsden returns in Gods & Monsters.
4)The Tardis black exterior was first featured in Robophobia, The Doomsday Quatrain & House Of The Blue Fire which take place in the Doctors timeline between Lurkers At Sunlight Edge & Protect & Survive.

Plot Summary.
The Seventh Doctor has mysteriously disappeared, The Tardis is out of control as Ace & Hex find themselves marooned on earth in the late 1980's were they seek refugee with Albert & Peggy Marsden as the Cold War turns into Nuclear War & World War 3 begins.

Will the Doctor return? & if so will there be anyone left to save when the bombs start to fall.

Timelord Thoughts.
This is a bleak chilling audio adventure by writer Jonathan Morris who delivers a intense gripping 4 part adventure putting the Doctor on the sidelines & bringing Ace & Hex to the forefront to carry the majority of this adventure.

What no Doctor I hear you cry well yes he's in it but in more of a guest role due to actor Sylvester McCoys work commitments on The Hobbit but fear not his Seventh incarnation of the Doctor is felt throughout this play.

Verified Purchase
This is the hundred and sixty second 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. There are four episodes, roughly 25-30 minutes each, complete with cliffhangers and 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 the second disc and a few minutes of the soundtrack at the end of disc 1.

This is an atmospheric and chilling story that unnerves from the very first and just gets darker. The Doctor is mysteriously missing from the TARDIS, then Ace and Hex are deposited in a disturbing situation – it’s England in the 1980’s, and there is a nuclear war going on. This is not the history that either of them remember. The tale evolves into an intense and claustrophobic little story as Ace and Hex take up shelter with an elderly couple in their homebuilt shelter. But, as ever, everything is not as it seems and there is a dark scheme of the Doctor’s behind everything. But where is the Doctor?

Cleverly constructed around the old protect and survive public information videos, and owing a little to Raymond Briggs’ ‘Blowing in the Wind’, this is perhaps the darkest, and most disturbing Doctor Who story I have seen or heard. The pitch perfect performances of Sophie Aldred and Philip Olivier really builds the tension, and the whole thing manages to cover the absence of McCoy (then off in New Zealand filming the Hobbit) really nicely, his appearance kept to a minimum with a few lines here and there that suggest some dark scheme going on.

It’s a dark and disturbing piece, which will make you laugh and cry. Absolutely brilliant, 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Precise and Suspense-ful 2 Dec 2012
Protect and Survive is quite a chilling listen that forces one's attention from early on. It is simple and educative yet compelling and really makes the most of audio whilst being quite economic. The companions dominate in this story and are showcased very well.

I would go as far as to say that this Big Finish audio is brilliant, as it could not be faulted. Whilst it might not be a favourite for everyone because of the theme, it would be hard to deny that this is one of the best productions from Big Finish; an accolade to all those involved.

Big Finish continue to amaze me with the quality and originality of their work. It was 120 minutes of my life very well spent and out of the many hundreds of audio productions I have listened to, I would be hard pressed to think of many or even any that are technically better audio productions than this.
