4.0 out of 5 stars theatre of blood 17 Aug 2009
Format:Audio CD
fifth release in the third batch of audio plays featuring paul mcgann as doctor who, with sheridan smith as his companion lucie miller. this one runs for roughly sixty minutes, and is divided into two episodes of roughly thirty minutes each. whilst there are some references to stories earlier in the season you can get into this one without having heard them.

the disc ends with eight minutes worth of interviews with two of the cast and the writer, and a trailer for the next release in the range.

the scapegoat is a rather original and very inventive litle tale. the tardis crew are intending to visit the moulin rouge when the tardis is forced off course and lands in paris during world war two. the ship then vanishes, and whilst the doctor has to elude the gestapo lucie is captured by a group of goat headed humanoid aliens who force her to perform in a play, alongside an actor who has died on stage many times. literally. in very bloody ways. but always come back.

the aliens have plans for the tardis. and the nazis would like it as well. the tardis crew have to fight to stay alive and escape. and stop the alien plans.

drawing on the history of grand guignol theatre, there's a lot to like here. some very original aliens characters who are all very well played and characterised. and some great moments for lucie as she deals with them and has to act herself, leading to some geuninely funny moments.

there's also a very nice little emotional scene at the end with the doctor and lucie reaffirming their relationship.

but this is one of those stories you'll either love or hate. the second episode feels about five minutes too long, and filled to the brim with analogies and nazis, it never quite comes together as well as it possibly could.

even so, there's a lot of entertainment to be had along the way. whilst this isnt quite as good as it could be it's still an entertaining listen.

3.0 out of 5 stars Doctor Who & The Theatre Of Goats 25 July 2014
By Timelord007 TOP 500 REVIEWER

Doctor: Eighth Doctor.
Companion: Lucie Miller.
Main enemy: Baroques, Nazis.
Main setting: Paris, Vichy France, 1940s.
Writer: Pat Mills.
Director: Nicholas Briggs.
Release number: 3.5.

Behind the scenes interviews.

The Doctor - Paul McGann
Lucie Miller - Sheridan Smith
Mother Baroque - Samantha Bond
Major Treptow - Clifford Rose
Doc Baroque - Christopher Fairbank
Max Paul - Paul Rhys
Leutnant - Thorston Manderlay
Helene - Beth Chalmers

1)The Doctor says he has changed eight times since leaving Gallifrey originally, However, this would make him the Ninth rather than the Eighth Doctor, In the 1996 TV Movie, the same mistake was made with the Doctor saying he had 12 lives instead of 13. That scene was later re-dubbed by Paul McGann to solve the problem.
2)The Baroques are a species of humanoid goats who travelled from another planet as part of an almost planet-wide diaspora following a cosmic catastrophe a thousand years in the past.
3)The Doctor refers to his time on Orbis. (Audio: Orbis).
4)Clifford Rose previously played Rorvik in (Audio: Warriors' Gate).
5)Samantha Bond previously played Mrs Wormwood in (SJA: Invasion of the Bane & Enemy of the Bane).
6)Christopher Fairbank is better known for playing Albert Moxey in Auf Wiedersehen Pet.

Plot Synopsis.
Oh, but if you think you've seen and heard all that Paris by night has to offer... the exotic sights of Le Moulin Rouge, perhaps, or the horror tricks of Le Grand Guignol... if you think nothing could cause your mouth to dry and your heart to pound...

5.0 out of 5 stars Scapegoat – Zut Alors! 15 Aug 2014
Format:Audio CD
First released in 2009, this is the fifth 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 is a startlingly original tale from BF in the new Eighth Doctor range. Landing in Pairs and expecting the see the sights of the Montmarte and Moulin Rouge, the Doctor and Lucie find that they are in the middle of the Nazi occupation by mistake. But the Nazi’s aren’t all that there is to worry about, there is also a very disturbing Grande Guignol theatre where not all of the blood in fake.

It’s witty, dark, pacey and thrilling. Lucie and the Doctor are at their best here, enjoying the adventure and facing it with characteristic humour and courage. McGann and Smith are simply brilliant. This is a great deal of fun tempered by some very dark and disturbing undertones. 5 stars for an almost perfect adventure.

3.0 out of 5 stars I aint afraid of no goats 4 Aug 2009
By Tony Jones VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
As Sheridan points out in the extras, this is called Scapegoat, not Space Goat. Confusingly though, this is about a tribe a space goats stranded on Earth that the Doctor and Lucie encounter in Nazi occupied Paris.

At first the story is a well written and performed Doctor meets the Nazis; it is only the Theatre de Baroque enters along with the previously mentioned goats that this takes off.

There is a lot here to like, including Lucie doing some camp acting and a different story set in wartime Paris, however I felt the line between entertainment and moralising was crossed when the story spends some time moralising about victims and scapegoats. The story also shines a slightly dark light (if that makes sense) into the human psyche and bloodlust of the masses.

Probably really a 3 and 1/2 but there you have it;not really bad but not the best in the series.
