5.0 out of 5 stars Beware Of The Chimes 15 Mar 2014
By Timelord007 TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
CD Info.
2x CD of a 4 episode story, Running time 115 minutes approx, Traliers.

Trivia.
1)Rob Shearman adapted his Big Finish audio adventure Jubilee into a tv episode for the Ninth Doctor called Dalek.
2)Charley Pollard own mini series is released later this year from Big Finish Productions.
3)This play was broadcast on BBC7 on 17th December 2005 & repeated the following 2 years on the same date.

Synopsis.
A Edwardian home in 1906 or is it, The Eighth Doctor & Charley are caught in this mysterious house outside of time & when the Grandfather clock chimes somebody will be murdered.

Can the Doctor unmask the murderer or are there other strange sinister forces at work here?

Timelord Thoughts.
This is a Big Finish classic that benefits from multiple listens as some plot threads may not become quite clear on first listen as writer Rob Shearman has wrote a gem of a mystery audio Eighth Doctor adventure here.

Paul McGann & India Fisher shine in there roles as the Eighth Doctor & Charley both giving truly remarkable strong performances as this chilling adventure becomes even more enigmatic as it goes along.

This is a superbly paced adventure that builds up the suspense engaging the listener full to solve the key plot points that make for a interesting puzzle for the Doctor & Charley to solve.

Rob Shearman is a excellent writer & it's a pity he hasn't written a Big Finish Doctor Who adventure in a few year's as he certainly knows how to write a good chilling Doctor Who mystery.

By Victor HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the twenty ninth 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 Charlotte Pollard. There are four 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.

This release is the second in the second miniseries of Eighth Doc stories, through which there is a loose story arc revolving around Charlotte Pollard's rescue from the R101 by the Doc back in their first adventure. The arc has a greater presence on some stories than others, and here it is quite important.

The Doctor and Charlie arrive in a late Edwardian town house pantry. Things are not as they should be and for some reason they are outside of normal time, and unable to interact with the house or its inhabitants. As the clock chimes they find the barriers weakened, and soon they are plunged into a deep and dark mystery below stairs, where the servants keep getting themselves improbably murdered.

At it's core is a really decent little idea, and it is superbly realised by the cast. India Fisher in particular gets lots to do, and she does it well. Charlie is now starting to lose some of her naivety and grow up a little, and Fisher portrays her journey very nicely. McGann plays Eight as a bundle of energy, having fun but with a deep compassion. And a slight inability to answer some difficult questions...

It's at first a very spooky story, which slowly morphs into something intelligent, moving and thought provoking. 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing... 19 Mar 2011
Format:Audio CD
My favourite Big Finish so far, this is a truly creepy+funny+weird story. McGann is excellent and the whole "noone goes upstairs when they are not called is kind of scary...

Format:Audio CD
My first Doctor was Christopher Eccelston and I have followed every Nu-Who story since. Last year for the 50th I've watched the "Greatest Hits" from the classic series, at least 4 stories from each Doctor (accept Colin Baker). So it is with some weight behind my words when I say 'The Chimes of Midnight' is one of the best and certainly the scariest Doctor Who stories I have ever experienced. It is dark, mature, emotional and thematically very rich. It's also the best narrative for a companion I have come across. Despite only listening to three Charlie stories prior to this one she has shot up in my appreciation, the writing and performance are so strong here. McGann is great as always, having invaded my top 3 Doctors list (Tennant, Troughton, McGann) and the supporting cast are suitably creepy too. I recommend you purchase this and watch it in a dark room, allowing yourself to legitimately experience one of the only Doctor Who stories scary enough for adults.

5.0 out of 5 stars Have yourself a scary little Christmas 5 Oct 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A full cast audio adventure of the 8th Doctor.

One of those stories that superlatives are not enough for. The Doctor and his companion Charly arrive at an early 20th century house in time for Christmas. And then like an Agatha Christie someone dies. and then..

To give more away would ruin the plot, but all the other reviews of this must give some idea of how strong this is as a production. Would stand well with the rest of the Doctor Who universe and beyond.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent start to a story arch 4 Feb 2009
Format:Audio CD
"Chimes of Midnight" is one of the best Big Finish audiostorys. The start of a wonderfully written story arch that ultimatley focusing around Charley and the effect her rescue from the R-101 on the web of time - but that really comes on later - as for CHIMES (without spoilers), the doctor and charley find themselves in the middle of a murder mystery that seems to have a temporal event at its heart.

Of all the monthly big finish storys I've heard this 2nd series of 8th doctor storys are the best.

Thoroughly enjoyable, this is what audio drama should be like, very few characters and one setting, and a cracking story that runs at just the right pace. Read more

The title of this Big Finish audio adventure is a pun on the title of Welles' 1965 masterpiece based on a larger-than-life character from Shakespeare's Henry IV. Read more
