Format: Audio CD
So now we hit the two-part end of season. We start with Lucie in a hotel on her own in 2015, the Doctor side-tracked with an off-course space probe. Lucie wanders off and bumps into Karen of all people. After an initial 'distrust' Lucie finds that Karen has joined a cult - the Eight Fold Truth. Despite some scepticism, Lucie is persuaded to go to an assessment at which, via the use of a healing crystal, Lucie begins to seriously question her relationship with the Doctor and their future.

Meanwhile the Doctor realises that something serious is wrong, tries to contact Lucie who by now is seriously brainwashed and has found out she is 'the one'. She has now time for the Doctor, and this is a really strong piece of acting and scripting.

As the action plays out, the Doctor tries to find Lucie via the cult and finds support in the guise of a reporter out to discredit them. Add to all this the reappearance of the Headhunter and the cult's belief that a rebel-sun is on its way to the earth we have a tremendous cocktail of ingredients for a smashing story.

Mix in with this some great casting - Stephen Moore as the cult leader, Sanjeev Bhaskar as the scientist and Sophie Winkelman all of whom are excellent and this is a great start to the end of the series.

Timelord Thoughts.
Eddie Robson the Big Finish go too guy whom always seemingly delivers something quite special in his stories once again pulls off another excellent audio adventure which this time sees the return of a classic monster.

Paul McGann once again delivers a fabulous performance as The Eighth Doctor who's play's to the Doctors strengths by using his Eighth incarnations energy & playfulness determination to bring down the cult of the Eightfold Truth & save Lucies soul.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 26 Oct. 2009
Format: Audio CD
latest in the third series of doctor who audio plays featuring paul mcgann as the doctor and sheridan smith as his companion lucie miller. Like all of them it's on one disc and runs for two twenty five minute episodes. But this one isn't complete in that time, as it's the first part of a two part season finale.

Characters from previous releases whom we haven't seen in a while reappear and a few elements from the first story in the season come back into play. But those who haven't heard those shouldn't have too much trouble getting into this.

Set in near future london, the Doctor investigates a missing space probe. Meantime Lucie, via an old acquaintance, is drawn into a cult and thoroughly brainwashed. This is all written and played in a very convincing manner.

As the Doctor fights back, with the help of an appealingly nonplussed scientist who takes it all in his stride and a former cult member turned journalist on a mission with a score to settle, the world is thrown into panic by a strange sight in the sky. But that's nothing compared to what's happening in the cult hq. As some old enemies of the doctor are on their way...

This doesn't feel like it wastes a moment of it's fifty minutes, as the narrative pace never slows down for a second. The final cliffhanger does come over as being a bit abrupt, but that's the only minor complaint to be levelled against an otherwise excellent story.

The last track on the disc is sixteen minutes worth of interviews with the cast. There's no trailer for the next part Worldwide Web (Doctor Who: The New Eighth Doctor Adventures), but that doesn't matter because after hearing this you'll be desperate to get it and find what happens next.

Format: Audio CD
First released in 2009, this is the seventh episode of the third season of standalone releases for Paul McGann’s Eighth Doctor outside of the monthly range of Big Finish releases. This is a one disc release, with two 25 minute episodes. There are some interviews with cast and crew at the end of the disc.

This has been an exceptionally strong season of releases for McGann’s eighth Doctor. This is the first part of a two part story that rounds the season out with some style. The Doctor and Lucie are investigating a strange cult, the eightfold way, which seems to be taking over the earth. A simple premise, but one that allows for so much to be done as the writers explore the nature of cults, poking a little fun at one of the more prominent contemporary offenders. The Doctor and Lucie are apart for most of the story, and both get a lot to do. Both have a lot of fun, and this shows the Eighth Doctor at his bouncy tiggerish best as he runs hither and thither trying to resolve things. And just when you think it is coming to a resolution the door is kicked wide open for the next part of the story with the unveiling of the true threat.

A great story, fantastically produced. 5 stars.

Eddie Robson strikes again! 26 Nov. 2009
By Peter Ingemi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Without a question Eddie Robson is my absolute favorite writer for the Big Finish Audios with only one exception Dr Who Phobos (Dr Who Big Finish) he has given triumph after triumph, The Best 8th Doctor story Grand Theft Cosmos (Doctor Who: The New Eighth Doctor Adventures) is his. The Best 6th Doctor story The Condemned (Doctor Who) in the entire run is also his, (I'd love to see what he can do with 5 & 7).

Once again he doesn't disappoint. The eight truths kept me guessing the entire way. The plot was simply wonderful, the story kept you begging for more and the performances all around just made it even better.

Good performers can on occasion rise above a mediocre script but great performers take a good script and just make it brilliant Paul McGann, Sheridan Smith, Sophie Winkleman, Katarina Olsson, and Kelly Godliman all shine, in fact everyone in the cast shines so lets not leave out Sanjeev Bhaskar or Stephen Moore. They all deserve to be named and remembered.

I find myself totally torn between looking up how it ends or waiting to get the next one. That's how good it is.

I DO know that Sheridan Smith and Luice Miller is due to leave after episode 1 of season 4. Are we seeing the new companion in this episode? I don't know and won't look it up till after but we might. Either way this part 1 of a two parter leaves you begging for more.

It's stories like this that make big finish what it is: The best source of New Doctor Who Adventures out there.

Buy it.
Intriguing Story 4 Mar. 2015
By Adam - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Eight Truths finds the Doctor investigating strange phenomena in the sky while Lucie's hanging out in London, but then he gets a call that Lucie can't have him his life as she's joined with the "Eight Truths Cult" to which the Doctor turns his attention.

This is an incredibly engrossing story. The parts about the cult are disturbing realistic and chilling. While Lucie isn't herself in the story (which is the point), we get to see a different aspect of Sheridan Smith. In the end, the plot twists (including the return of an old enemy of the Doctor as well an even older one) hold this together plus a very nice performance by Sophie Winkleman as Kelly.

The negative is that while this story is an easy 8 out of 10, it could have been far better. The Doctor's lack of emotional reaction to Lucie's departure was odd as well as his decision to work outside the system to find out what was going on and confront the cult which would be more par for the course.

Still, this was a very strong installment.
