This is the fifty second release from Big Finish in their range of full cast audio adventures starring classic Doctor Whos. It stars Paul McGann as Eight and India Fisher as Charley Pollard. It is the first in a season of four linked Eighth Doctor stories that follow directly from the events of Zagreus. There are 4 episodes, roughly 25-30 minutes each, complete with original theme music between each, and cliff hanger endings. Two episodes per disc on 2 discs, and a short booklet with some pictures of the cast and production notes.

The producers of the Big Finish range seem to have taken the decision to do something new and experimental with the Eighth Doctor. His stories have morphed over time from straight adventures as we know them into tales that are a bit more challenging. The mind bending Zagreus marked the full transformation. At the end of that epic, the Doctor and Charley voluntarily departed for the divergent universe, to remove the possibility of infecting our universe with anti-time. This is the story of the consequences of their actions.

Cleverly playing with perceptions and senses, the story explores how the relationship between Eight and Charley has been irrevocably changed by their actions. It's a character study that goes into what it means to be a companion of the Doctor, why he has companions and why they want to travel with him. It also starts to explore the possibilities of this new universe, with different laws and properties to our own.

It's a bit of a masterpiece. OK, so occasionally it strays into the overly sentimental, and the L word (you know, that 4 letter one that blokes are traditionally uncomfortable with) comes up a few times too often, but that can be forgiven.

My favourite Doctor Who story of all time did not appear on television but was an Eighth Doctor story for Big Finish audios. After pulling off ‘Zagreus’, their most complex story with the largest cast yet, Big Finish stripped it all back for the character-piece to end all character-pieces. The Doctor has banished himself to another universe, intending never to return. His one solace is the knowledge that he has done this to save his companion Charley, that she is safe and will live a full and happy life. The only problem is Charley has snuck aboard the TARDIS. What follows is one of the scariest and most emotional stories I have ever consumed. The performances are sublime, to the point that if I met either of these actors I would gush about this audio drama despite having listened to many others starring Eight and Charley. The sound design feels alive. The script is water-tight; perfect for an audio-only medium and flawless in its dissection of both characters, the very nature of being The Doctor’s companion, death, sacrifice and love. The only downside (and it isn’t really a downside) is that this almost certainly works a lot better if you have listened to some of the Eighth Doctor’s audios leading up to this; ‘Storm Warning’, ‘Neverland’ and ‘Zagreus’ itself, with the recommended addition of ‘The Chimes of Midnight’ – another audio which almost made this list.

Following the events of 40th Anniversary audio Zagreus, the 8th Doctor and Charley find themselves trapped in a strange alternate universe. This audio is probably best suited for audio more than tv. Just The Doctor and Charley as they encounter a strange sound creature in a strange new universe and no other cast members at all feeling like a stage play more than anything else. This type of storyline hasn't been attempted since the early Hartnell tv 2 part episode Edge Of Destruction and not an ideal starting point for new listeners, it assumes you know the backstory for previous audios and can keep up with what could be quite frankly the most bizarre Doctor Who story ever starting off the 3rd series of 8th Doctor adventures.
