What's Up Doc?
Space travellers are warned to keep away from the planet Asphya & it's moon Erys which is were the Sixth Doctor has landed the Tardis which is invaded by the Drachee who also kidnap his companion Flip Jackson.

But the Tardis isn't the only stricken vessel in the planet's region as searching for Flip the Doctor encounters a woman named Sarra a woman who holds the key to the secrets of Erys in her mind.

Sadly for Sarra she is suffering from amnesia or could it something in fact far far worse as once you know the secrets of Erys you can never escape.

Timelord Thoughts.
This story by writer Andrew Smith moves along at a cracking pace but does get slightly bogged down a little with his explanation of what's going on in episode 3 but remedies this by the story's final part.

Neither good or bad to be honest.
The sixth Doctor's latest companion is alright.
Bring back Maggie Stables though!
She was brilliant!

Format: Audio CD
A new Doctor Who audio story. Featuring Colin Baker as the Doctor, and Lisa Greenwood as his companion, twenty first century teenager Philippa 'Flip' Jackson.

This is the second in a new trilogy for the pair. Although the story does stand pretty much on it's own and you don't really need to have heard the preceding one in order to get into this. One passing remark late on to events in that isn't likely to confuse any casual listener.

The story runs for four parts. And is spread over two cd's. The first three episodes run from twenty five to twenty seven minutes in length. The last is thirty two minutes long [approx.].

This story is written by Andrew Smith, who wrote the Fourth Doctor TV story 'Full Circle' and who has also done a couple of other Big Finish stories.

It's set on a place called Erys. Which is a moon of a planet called Asphya. Neither might seem at a glance to be particularly remarkable places. But there are warning beacons nearby telling space travellers to keep away.

When the TARDIS materialises in the region, and Flip is kidnapped by some strange Imp like creatures, the Doctor has no choice but to get involved. He also finds a spaceship with a woman on board. Who has lost her memory. A memory which contains the secret of this system.

A secret that happens to be rather surprising..

The first three parts of this move at an excellent pace, thanks to not being overlong. They do feel like episodes that might have been achievable on the tv show back in the mid 1980's.

They create a very alien setting that intrigues. And throw in a central mystery as well, in regards to the amnesiac woman.

There are some steady reveals, which keep the story moving alon very nicely.

Not one of the 6th doctor's best outings, though Colin Baker is as superb as ever.

Another Great Sixth Doctor Adventure! 26 April 2015
By Joseph Baneth Allen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Just finished listening to "Doctor Who #183 - The Brood Of Erys" relased by Big Finish Productions. SPOILERS Ahead....
Despite having promised Flip a return to the paradise planet, the Sixth Doctor decides its a perfect time to reclaibrate some of instruments aboard the TARDIS and he stops in rather an isolated region of space around a star that has just a single planet with a moon orbiting it.
At first glace, despite the oddity of just a single planet orbiting a star, nothing seems unsual untiil the Doctor notices a rather complicated relay system orbting that planet warning people away. Then space ships arrive and aliens jump out of them and land on the TARDIS. Alarmed, Flip opens the doors despite the Doctor's warnings and soon is kidnapped to ERYS - a living moon.
Meanwhile the Doctor rescues a woman whose spaceship is about to be destroyed by ERYS. She has no memory and presents an engima to the Doctor who soon learns that all is not what it appears to be on the planet, nor on ERYS.
What struck me most about this episode is that the Doctor rather reluctantly has to share his feelings about Susan and his other companions in front of strangers.
STRONGLY RECOMMENDED!
FIVE STARS!
