"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).

This is such an exciting and enjoyable story to listen to!

'The Harvest' starring Sylvester McCoy, Sophie Aldred and Phillip Olivier is a tense and gripping audio drama that really works. 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 featuring the Cybermen that started with 'The Reaping' and 'The Gathering'. But 'The Harvest' was made before those two stories. But Joseph Lidster decided to interlink his two plays into this one by Dan Abnett.

Dan is a very clever writer for strong drama and 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 is about Thomas Hector Schofield (Hex) who works at St. Gart's Hospital in London. It's his birthday in 2021 and it's not going well. A flatmate of his has been reported to A&E at the hospital and soon reported dead. Hex is upset at this and can't have the stomach to go to his birthday party.

Hex meets and becomes friends with Dorothy McShane (or 'Just McShane') from HR. Hex then gets run over by a car before 'McShane' saves him. Curious, Hex follows her to find an old battered blue box, which is bigger on the inside and meets a mysterious man with an umbrella called the Doctor.

This is a great introduction to Phillip Olivier as Hex.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is the fifty eighth release from Big Finish in their range of full cast audio adventures starring classic Doctor Whos. It stars Sylvester McCoy as Seven and Sophie Aldred as Ace (sorry, McShane). It also introduces new companion Thomas Hector Schofield (Hex to his friends) played by Philip Olivier. There are 4 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.

Seven, as usual, is interfering. There are some strange goings on in a hospital, he fears something particularly nasty for mankind about to be unleashed through mankind's curiosity and blindness. He and Ace investigate and are soon on the run from some familiar old foes. But just what else is going on in the hospital? Can the Cybermen have really changed?

It's a rip-roaring straight adventure, in the best traditions of Who. There's plenty of action, and a suitably knotty problem for the Doctor. There is a bit of a double twist towards the end that kept me somewhat off balance.

There is some great writing here, especially for Ace and Hex, who have a good rapport. Hex's inclusion into the TARDIS crew adds an interesting new dynamic, and this looks like being one of the classic crews in the future. The three leads make the most of it, especially McCoy who relishes his dark final scene with his old enemy.

A cracking adventure, well produced and thoroughly entertaining. 5 stars, no problem.
