4.0 out of 5 stars New kid (and old monsters) on the block 19 May 2007
Format:Audio CD
"On the morning of 12 October 2021 Hex woke up. He was expecting to go to work at St Gart's in London as normal and, that evening, have a great time in the bar of the White Rabbit, celebrating his 23rd birthday.

"But after his ex-flatmate is wheeled into A&E following a bike accident, and the strange young woman from Human Resources tries to chat him up AND an eight-foot tall guy in a Merc tries to run him down, Hex realises things are not going quite as he expected.

"Then in a Shoreditch car park he meets the enigmatic Doctor, who explains that he's an extra-terrestrial investigator and something very strange is going on up on the thirty-first floor of St Gart's.

"Therefore, aided and abetted by the Doctor, and his other new friend, 'Just McShane', Hex decides to investigate. Trouble is, everything that goes on at the hospital is being observed and noted by the occupants of the thirty-first floor; occupants who are none too pleased that people are poking their noses into business that doesn't concern them; occupants who will go to extraordinary lengths to ensure that no one discovers the truth..."

In "The Harvest", writer Dan Abnett has the privilege of introducing the Doctor and Ace's new travelling companion, Thomas "Hex" Schofield (Philip Olivier). He also provides many of the classic ingredients for a successful story: a hospital setting, a misguided scientist who is carrying out unpleasant experiments at the behest of a persuasive villain, and the return of a classic monster, the identity of which I won't spoil for you in this review (although it is common knowledge to many by now).

Format:Audio CD
`The Harvest' starring Sylvester McCoy, Sophie Aldred and Phillip Olivier is a tense and gripping audio drama that really works. It's such an exciting story to listen to, and I enjoyed it. It features the return of some old foes and introduces the start of a new companion for the Doctor. You really won't regret listening to this. It's brilliant.

This is the third of a trilogy of stories featuring the Cybermen that started with 'The Reaping' and 'The Gathering'. But it wasn't always like this. For a start, `The Harvest' was made before `The Reaping' and `The Gathering' was ever made. But with clever plot threads and story weaving, Joseph Lidster decided to interlink his two fantastic plays into this one written by Dan Abnett. Dan is a very clever writer for writing strong drama and from his experience of working in comics makes the action dynamic and enjoyable to listen to. He expresses a fondness for writing the Seventh Doctor and Ace and has had the pleasure of introducing a new companion in the form of Hex.

The story of `The Harvest' is about a young man named Thomas Hector Schofield - Hex to his friends - who works at St. Gart's Hospital in Shoreditch, London. It's his birthday on the 12th October 2021. And it's not going very well. For one thing a flatmate of his has recently been reported to A&E at the hospital and soon reported dead. Hex is upset at this and can't have the heart or stomach to go to his birthday party at the White Rabbit.

He meets an attractive girl who works in Human Resources called Dorothy McShane (or `Just McShane' as she prefers to be called).

Review.
2021.

Thomas Hector Scofield or Hex as is his nickname is a nurse at St Gorts Hospital were strange event's seem to be occuring.

The Hospital has hired a new girl who's name is called McShane, But McShane is acting very shifty as she seems to be snooping around & asking far to many questions at the hospital.

What is the mysterious C' Program & has it anything to do with the mysterious death's that are occurring within the hospital?

Finally why does McShane seem to be living in a blue police box in Totters Lane with a mysterious man wearing a hat & carrying a umbrella known simply as The Doctor?.
