4.0 out of 5 stars promising early start 21 July 2006
The very first big finish story has the fifth sixth and seventh doctors all facing similar threats on their own, and then brought together at the end to deal with as it gets bigger.

Each gets an episode to themselves. Some are better than others. The seventh's doesn't engage, the fifth's is quite good although his companions are written out of it in a contrived manner, and the sixth's is involving due to the quality of colin baker's acting.

On their own those episodes would rate three stars, but this story as a whole gets up to a four as it's a great listen when the doctors come together. Sylvester Mccoy and Colin Baker are a great double act, and Peter Davison is superb in the elder statesman of the trio role.

The rest of the plot is nothing special, but this is still a pretty good listen

4.0 out of 5 stars In The Beginning! 19 Mar 2014
By timelord007 TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
CD Info.
2xCD of a 4 episode adventure, Running time 120 minutes approx.

1)This was the first Doctor Who Big Finish audio adventure & newly written Doctor Who material to be performed by the actual actor's who have played the role of the Doctor since the 1996 tv movie.
2)Doctor Who writer Mark Gatiss appears in this story as Captain Schweiger.
3)The Knight's Of Velyshaa & the Drudgers both return in the Dalek Empire series.
4)To date there are 4 multi Doctor Big Finish storys ,The Sirens Of Time, Zagreus, The Four Doctor's & The Light At The End.

Vansell a member of the Celestial Intervention Agency arrives on Gallifrey with a urgent message for the President of the Timelord high council, Gallifrey is being threatened by a fleet of warships surrounding the planet & are fitted with technology far superior to that of the Timelords who would be powerless to repel against such destructive power.

The Doctor discovers that there is a conspiracy to kill him as he faces mysterious trials in his Fifth, Sixth & Seventh incarnations but why is this mysterious enemy targeting this particular Timelord?

To go up against this latest threat it will take not 1 but 3 incarnations of the Doctor to come together & confront this mysterious enemy, But just who are the sirens of time & what do they actually want with the Doctor?

Timelord Thoughts.
This was the first ever Big Finish audio adventure released way back in 1999 written by Nicholas Briggs who would later become the voice of the Daleks, Cybermen, Ice Warriors on tv & audio to eventually becoming the executive producer of Big Finish Productions taking over from Gary Russell.

This is the first in the Big Finish range of Classic Doctor Who audio stories, and great things were to follow.

Dr. Who works superbly well as an audio production, mainly because the production team are no longer hamstrung by cheap visual effects. The monsters are so much better when you cannot see them! Also, as no sets are needed it allows for a much wider and imaginative selection of location, and is able to produce stories with epic, sweeping qualities that just cannot be made for TV.

Following the format of the classic show, adventures are usually 4 part with 25 minutes per episode. In this adventure we are presented with one episode each starring Peter Davison, Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy, in their individual dealings with the main villain of the piece. Then finally in the fourth episode the three come together to battle it out with their foe. This is where it gets really interesting, and the interaction between the three leads is excellent.

Cast and production crew were still finding their feet, but nonetheless this is good start. The three leads slip back into their roles easily, and after a few minutes it is as if they had never been away. Great stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Strong Start 20 Oct 2013
In my mission to listen to all of the Doctor Who audios, I started my journey with The Sirens Of Time.

It was nice to hear Peter, Colin and Sylvestor back as the Doctor, but the story was a little hard to follow. Each Doctor gets their own episode before joining together in the fourth.

It's a good start, but I think there are better ones to comes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Three Time Lords for the Price of One! 2 Sep 2013
Back in the final, fading days of the last century, our good Doctor's brilliant flame was flickering down to its last embers. Briefly fanned by the TV movie in '96, it had been kept alive by books and an increasingly eclectic magazine. It looked like the TARDIS doors were soon going to close forever. And then came The Sirens of Time...

When I first heard this, back in 2000-2001, I found it to be a little confusing, with far more going on than I remembered in the series. Besides, Doctor Who was a visual thing, wasn't it? But time, and the Doctor, has moved on. Now, we hear the Doctor on radio and CD regularly, enjoying a modern series for a modern audience. So, it seems like a good time for a reassessment.
Clearly designed both to showcase and advertise these new productions, we are treated to three single episode adventures for the Fifth, Sixth and Seventh Doctors, all of which are entirely different, yet somehow similar. Each ends with a dramatic cliffhanger that seems to spell certain doom for our hero. They are all working alone, without the TARDIS or companion, at least almost: each gets a brief companion to apparently aid them. But are they all they seem? And just why are the Time Lords so keen to first contact, and then try to kill, the Doctor?
The fourth and final installment gives us all the answers, as all three find themselves having to work together to battle a foe as old as time, and just as fickle. But, will they all make it out I one piece?

The cast are clearly enjoying themselves with this story, in particular the Doctors, all of whom seem to settle into their roles with an ease that believe the passage of time.
