Back cover blurb:
October, 1930. His Majesty's Airship, the R101, sets off on her maiden voyage to the farthest-flung reaches of the British Empire, carrying the brightest lights of the Imperial fleet as well as the hopes and dreams of a breathless nation.
Not to mention a ruthless spy with a top-secret mission, a mysterious passenger who appears nowhere on the crew list, a would-be adventuress destined for the Singapore Hilton... and a Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey.
There's a storm coming. There's something unspeakable, something with wings, crawling across the stern. Thousands of feet high in the blackening sky, the crew of the R101 brace themselves. When the storm breaks, their lives won't be all that's at stake...
The future of the galaxy will be hanging by a thread.

Notable for being the audio story that introduced long-serving companion, 'Edwardian adventuress' Charley Pollard; this is a cracking story with strong performances from Paul McGann (The Eighth Doctor), India Fisher (Charley) and Gareth Thomas (Lord Tamworth). The 'Vortisaurs' could make superb television monsters in the right hands, and the Time Loop idea, although not a new one, is handled well by director Gary Russell. Good story, competitive price on here; essential listening if you want to make sense of any future Eighth Doctor audios.

So here it is. Paul Mcgann plays the Doctor for the first time since the TV movie, and in a story which puts the movie to shame.

The setting of the doomed R101 airship is brilliant and the actors all put in first class perforrmances. The aliens in this story are very easy to imagine and Alan Barnes writing gives the Triskeli real character rather than the generic cannon fodder sometimes used in the TV series. Credit must also be givin to the designer of he cover which manages to be both 1930s esque whilst also being very dak.

The ending leaves the series open to an intriguing dillemma for the Doctor over his new companion Charley (One which will have far reaching consequences in future 8th Doctor audios).

This is where it all (re)starts! Regardless of the 'big' 8th Doctor series arc that followed, this particular audio play returns us to the original idea of the series and gives us a fun romp through history with a bit of drama and light relief thrown in. The new companion is okay but it's McGann himself who sets the tone.
The only reason I haven't awarded a full 5 stars is that the play sags badly in episode three when the plot is explained in interminable, and pointless, detail. Sometimes adding alien races and mad plans actually detracts from Doctor Who rather than adding to it. Shame really.
Otherwise, welcome back Paul, it's about time...

Set in October 1930, on his majesty's airship the R101, this story is based loosely on real events surrounding the fate of the aircraft. It makes for a gripping audio drama that doesn't disappoint.

The story re-introduces Paul McGanns doctor, and does so in a fitting manner, he has everything you could ask for in a doctor, and is the last of the traditional doctors, before eccleston and his weaker timelord persona took over. So there is no 'Oh My God, You're AMAZING! and so am I!' balderdash that seriously undermines the credibility of the current writing team.

McGann's doctor is well known having a bit more of an edge to him than any of the other doctor's and this story highlights why. Without saying too much, you find out on the second disc.

There is some really good characterisation and dialogue in this play, that entertains from start to finish, not to mention the obvious chemistry between Paul McGann and India Fisher. Also Gareth Thomas from Blakes 7 plays a role, but i didn't really like Blakes 7 anyway...

...This play is well worth a listen, especially if you're a fan of historical-who.

Format: Audio CD
I am an avid Who fan that, for a long while now, has been sceptical of getting one of these Audio Dramas, fearing they would try and do something wrong with the classic Who formula. However, i took the plunge with Storm Warning. If i didn't like it, at least i could say i'd tried the Audio path.
I'll skip straight to the point: this was brilliant. The opening sequence in the TARDIS with Paul McGann immediately cleared the clouds on whether i would take to the purely audio situation and when the story really gets going i was hooked. McGann is excellent - bringing a new Doctor to light despite only one TV movie of screen time. He is instantly Who with new witticisms and a new enthusiasm for the role. The plot of the story itself - which i knew nothing of, discovering the hard way that blurbs ruin plot twists all too often. Don't worry - not on this CD. Everything that happens takes your breath away and the imagination involved is spectacular. This is a real treat. As is the voice cast. The new companion fits it like a glove, voiced enthusiastically by India Fisher, and the guest voice is a dream. Gareth Thomas, of Blake's 7, finally gets to be in Doctor Who and he is brilliant. Exclamation mark. I cannot recommend this one higher. Its a great place to start if you're unsure either of the Eight Doctor or of audio dramas in general.
Additional: the audio allows the imagination to create all manner of things to make it just that little more personal. Eg - just what does a Vortesaur look like? Its up to you.
I only give this four stars because its the first one i've ever attempted. Perhaps the others are better!
