4.0 out of 5 stars The eye of the Emerald Tiger 30 May 2012
By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
A new Doctor Who audio play. Start of a new trilogy of three stories which feature Peter Davison as the Doctor, plus Janet Fielding Sarah Sutton and Mark Strickson as his companions Tegan Nyssa and Turlough.

This follows on from two previous trilogies to feature this TARDIS crew. There is an ongoing story arc to them which involves Nyssa, who has just rejoined the TARDIS many years for her after leaving it, searching for a cure to a disease. But this is barely touched on here and the story stands pretty much on it's own. Thus casual listeners should be able to get into it quite easily.

It runs for four episodes, which vary in length from twenty six to thirty two minutes [approx] and is spread across two cd's.

It's set in India in 1926. But before the Doctor and friends arrive, there's a pre credit sequence which introduces us to some of the characters and the main threat. Some of the elements may seem a little familiar at first but it becomes a very scary scene that uses the audio medium to it's best to scare the listener.

When the TARDIS crew arrive, they are there intending to see a cricket match. Fun banter ensues as some are more interested in the game than others. This and good sound design and music really create a great sense of setting and make the episode very absorbing.

Various characters who are all well written and played then come into the story, which sends all of the participants off to a remote area where strange things lie in wait. All of the people involved have their reasons for heading there. But how will they cope when they meet the legendary Emerald Tiger?

This draws inspiration from adventure stories of the time at which it is set - and there are some clever homages to that kind of thing throughout.

This is the hundred and fifty ninth release from Big Finish in their range of full cast audio adventures starring classic Doctor Whos. It stars Peter Davison as Five, with Mark Strickson as Turlough, Sarah Sutton as the older Nyssa and Janet Fielding as Tegan. There are four episodes, roughly 25-30 minutes each, complete with cliffhangers and original theme music between each. Two episodes per disc on 2 discs, and a short booklet with some pictures of the cast and production notes. There are some interviews with cast and crew at the end of the second disc and a few minutes of the soundtrack at the end of disc 1.

This is a difficult story for me to review in some respects, because it totally played with my preconceptions of what it would be like. I have detested the previous two trilogies for this particular TARDIS crew for a variety of reasons, mainly the horrible character of Tegan and the sidelining of companions for long periods as there are too many of them to get a decent slice of the action each. Also some of the plots and ideas have been poor and poorly realised. I was dreading listening to this, expecting the run of form to continue with a seventh execrable release. But WOW!!!! I never thought I would say it, but this story is amazing, and I am forced to reassess some of the harsh words I have previously uttered regarding this TARDIS crew – given the right material they can really shine! Tegan, previously my least favourite companion (except of course for Adric...) is totally redeemed here, and finally Big Finish do for her what they have previously done for Mel, Peri, Nyssa and to some extent Adric (in ‘The Boy That Time Forgot’) and reinvigorated a previously little regarded TV companion into a potential fan favourite. Look at this! I am praising Tegan!

Review.
The Doctor & his companions Nyssa,Tegan & Turlough all land in India in 1926 to hopefully catch a good game of cricket.

But event's turn sinister as a Chauffeur working for a Indian Professor who is rabid suddenly runs through the streets savagely attacking Nyssa biting into her arm.

Nyssa is then infected with a virus that causes her the power of telepathy & undergoes a part transform into a Wear-Tiger whom comunicates telepathically to another female Tiger.

The Doctor & his companions are introduced to Lady Foster whom tells the Doctor a story about The Emerald Tiger & asks him to join in the Quest to retrieve it as it may save Nyssa whom infection is slowly killing her.

The Doctor agrees & set's off with his companions in the Quest of locating The Emerald Tiger & a race against time ensures, But what are the motives of Lady Foster for wanting the Emerald Tiger retrieved?

What is Major Haggard really up to in all this & can the Doctor & his companions reach the Lost City of Lanka in time to find the Emerald Tiger & save Nyssa's life?

This is a full on action adventure romp for The Fifth Doctor & his companions all that's missing from this play is a Fedora, Bullwhip & John Williams iconic theme as this is Doctor Who does Indiana Jones.
