Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is the hundred and seventieth release from Big Finish in their range of full cast audio adventures starring classic Doctor Whos. It stars Colin Baker and Bonnie Langford as Six and Mel. There are four episodes, roughly 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 the second of three releases in a row to feature the Sixth Doctor and Mel. And I have to say that I am rater enjoying them. Mel first appeared alongside Six on TV with Trial of a Timelord, but spent most of her time alongside Sylvester McCoy. On audio she has appeared alongside both Six and Seven in stories that have developed her as a character and repaired her reputation as an annoying companion. Her most memorable audio adventures have been alongside the Sixth Doctor, and this is definitely one of them.

Following from the mould breaking loopiness of ‘The Wrong Doctors’, this story features Mel and Six in the most traditional Dr Who setting of all, the enclosed, cut off space colony. This time it is an old spaceport, in which the inhabitants, descended from stranded passengers, have evolved into a rather interesting society.

The first episode is an incredibly atmospheric scene setter, then what follows is a rip-roaringly good adventure as the Doctor and his friends run around various corridors trying to understand just what is going on and how to resolve the situation.

Format: Audio CD
CD Info.

2xCD of a four episode adventure, Running time 120 minutes, Trailer, Music, 14 minutes of behind the scenes interviews.

Trivia.
1)The Doctor tells Mel he once kept a Robot dog in the Tardis as a companion for years.
2)Ronald Pickup (Elder Bones) featured in the First Doctor Tv adventure The Reign Of Terror & also features in another Big Finish audio Doctor Who Time Work's as Kestorian.

Review.

Tantane Spaceport, The two classes Business & Economy have been in a war for over 400 years.

At Tantane Spaceport passengers may check in but no passenger's ever checkout.

The Sixth Doctor & Mel arrive in the Tardis on Tantane spaceport were they investigate what is going on inside this vast seemingly abandoned Spaceport.

Yet unknown to the Doctor & Mel there is a creature stalking the corridors with a taste for flesh, The Wailer is coming & senses a taste of fresh meat The Doctor & Mel's flesh!.

Timelord Thoughts.

Bit of a mystery this one is.

I liked the story's premise & episode 1 sets up a great adventure with a great cliffhanger that Doctor Who does so well.

Yet the episodes that follow don't live up to the premise of the opening episode which I felt were a bit too much talky in places & needed a tighter pacing here & there.

This is not to say Spaceport Fear written by William Gallagher is a poor audio adventure not by any means I just thought it promised something that it didn't quite deliver.

Colin Baker & Bonnie Langford do well in there main roles of the Doctor & Mel whom is given a more fully rounded character on audio at Big Finish than she was allowed to portray on Tv.

Format: Audio CD
A new Doctor Who audio story. Second a in a run of three that feature Colin Baker as the Doctor and Bonnie Langford as his companion Mel.

This story, despite being in the middle of a trilogy, stands pretty much entirely on it's own. And casual listeners would be able to get into it quite easily without having heard any other story.

It runs for four parts of thirty minutes each in length [approx] and is spread over two cd's.

The story is set in a spaceport called Tantane. Where two tribes of people - economy and business - have been at war for years. Where terrible stories are told about a creature called the Wailer that wanders the corridors and eats people.

Where people wait for the summer to come.

And where the TARDIS has just arrived. The Doctor and Mel are about to discover the hidden secrets of a place that nobody ever leaves....

It's obvious right from the start that this is a devolved culture story - one where the residents of a place have been there so long they've forgotten and misinterpreted what a lot of things mean. Things that are obvious to the listener. And the Doctor. All the set up of this in part one is very intriguing and a good listen. The cast are excellent, particularly veteran character Ronald Pickup [whose very first acting job was on the Doctor Who tv story 'The Reign of Terror' back in the 1960's]. There are some fun lines of pop culture references that firmly date Mel as a child of the 1980's. And she has a nice relationship with the Doctor, who is very much the calmer version of the audios rather than the abrasive one of his tv era.

There's really good sound design which makes you feel as if you're in a large, quiet and almost deserted building.

Plus an excellent cliffhanger.
