I love `The Chimes of Midnight'!

This is a proper Christmassy feel of an adventure with the Eighth Doctor and Charley (played by Paul McGann and India Fisher). The second story of season 2 with the Doctor and Charley from Big Finish, this story became an award-winning success and is well-loved by the fans.

I've met Paul McGann at conventions and asked him to sign the CD cover of `The Chimes of Midnight' for me at a convention in Cardiff this year in March 2014. Knowing this was one of his and India's favourite Big Finish audio adventures in `Doctor Who', I wanted to have it signed by him. He was delighted when I asked him to sign it declaring "Chimes of Midnight!" and saying "Love it!" in his Liverpudlian accent. I'm glad I've had my CD cover of `The Chimes of Midnight' signed by Paul as it truly is a cracking good adventure.

`The Chimes of Midnight' is a four-part adventure on a 2-disc CD set written by Robert Shearman, who would go on to write 'Dalek' in the new series of `Doctor Who'. It was great listening to one of Rob's earliest and most successful works in Big Finish for `Doctor Who' before working on the TV series when it returned in 2005.

I've had the pleasure of meeting Rob Shearman at a convention in Swansea back in 2011. It was great meeting him and I enjoyed sharing with him the `Doctor Who' stories he did as well as the series in general. I was surprised to learn during a Big Finish panel that he felt he'd done a bad job on writing `The Chimes of Midnight' and thought it would never work as an audio story for `Doctor Who'.

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.

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.
