3.0 out of 5 stars Lost in Spaaaace! 6 Nov 2011
Following on from the excellent Lost collections featuring the First, Sixth, Seventh and Fifth Doctors, comes this collection taken from the era of the Beatles, Cold War and pre-decimalisation; and it shows. Prison in Space is billed as an attempt by the (then) production team to 'lighten' the series up, so what we have is a Carry-On style romp, complete with domineering woman wearing skin-tigh t rubber uniforms, prat-falls aplenty, Jamie dressing up as an old lady, and most gruesome of all, a toad-faced female dictator falling in love with The Doctor..!
Whilst some of this is tongue-in-cheek fun, I feel it does nothing for the show at all, and is best seen as a nostalgic curiosity.
A disc full of extras gives more insight into the way Doctor Who was produced in the late 1960s, while another lost story featuring Space Agent Sara Kingdom and lots of Daleks, completes the collection.

1.0 out of 5 stars so bad it made me angry! 3 July 2014
Worst Big Finish Dr Who I've ever heard. The Dalek story is a curates egg - moody and overblown, interesting from historic sense but not for repeated listening though. However Prison in space is an absolute dog. Zero characterisation, tries for laughs but cringeworthy and hideously s exist. I could forgive it a little as a dusted off antique but it really is embarrassing. Thankfully got it cheap but still feel conned that such an awful story should form the lions share of a 'special release'. Some Big Finish releases are wonderful so if this is your first then don't give up!

2.0 out of 5 stars Curate's Egg 24 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase
I'm not a fan of talking books - full cast audio drama yes, love it, but the talking books tend to send me to sleep.
However I had read good things about this one.

"Prison in Space" was written as a comedy for the Second Doctor and as a result is very much of its time. Not quite a Carry On story, but the villain is called Babs.
It is performed as a talking book with a few dramatised interludes. Wendy Padbury and Frazer Hines do a great job in bringing the story to life, but the story itself is just too... bizarre. Frazer's Troughton impression is impressive though.

"Daleks: The Destroyers" was my reason for buying this set, however.
Back in the 60s Terry Nation, creator of the Daleks, wanted to take his psychotic cyborgs to America and basically pulled the plug on them appearing in Doctor Who. He wrote a pilot episode for an American TV network... which never even reached pre-production.
The premise was that the Space Security Service would be pitted against the Daleks each episode, the SSS having stemmed from the Dalek epic "The Dalek Masterplan" (and it's prequel "Mission to the Unknown")
This CD (running to 70 minutes) is that TV script on audio. Rather than adapt it for audio the team decided to have Jean Marsh (Sara Kingdom) narrate it as if she was reading stage directions - which is what she does. Her voice is flat and rather intrusive sadly. The moments of high drama are ruined by narration. What should have been a special production has turned into the worst CD I have ever listened to from Big Finish. The actors really do sound as if they are reading aloud rather than acting.
Boring and dull.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant cosmic farce 8 Nov 2011
By Whovian
I miss the Black & White days! I loved Hartnell and Troughton, and feel robbed by the fact that so many old episodes were junked, so this is a real treat. Fraser Hines gives a fantastic impression of Patrick Troughton so it is easy to visualise the story, which is a fun romp. The Dalek story that follows is interesting from a historical point of view, but not on a par with the main attraction. Still worth having though.
