This is the eighteenth release from Big Finish in their range of full cast audio adventures starring classic Doctor Whos. It stars Paul McGann as Eight and India Fisher as Charlie Pollard. There are four 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 notes from the author.

The Doctor and Charlie need a holiday, so drop in on Venice. But Venice is under a curse, doomed to fall into the sea the very next day. The streets are crawling with revellers out for one last party before they die, occult weirdys in robes and masks looking for some sacred objects and trying to perform some horrible rites, and mutated gondoliers, who are nopw part amphibian and can't wait for Venice to sink so they can live in it on their own terms. Our heroes find themselves being chased, captured and threatened in all sorts of horrible ways as they try to find a way out of the mess.

It's an entertaining adventure, with some good ideas. Unfortunately, after a strong couple of episodes of scrapes and escapades, in which McGann really has some fun with his Doctor's character, the ending and resolution is a bit weak. Coupled with some dodgy acting from the extras (the Venetian accents on display vary wildly in quality, usually from the same character...) this brings it down to a 3 star story rather than the 4 I was initially thinking.

After hearing the first of McGann's audio dramas i immediately set out to find another. The Stones of Venice is a nice title, and i liked the idea of the setting, but i wasn't sure if the historical and love story was good enough for Who. (i had not yet heard the story or anything much about it, so....) Imagine my surprise -and delight - that its set far in the future, when Venice is about to sink into the sea. Its not on this sci-fi twist that i recommend this drama, however, despite the fantastic idea at the heart. McGann is great, India Fisher as Charley is on the right side of annoying, questioning everything and generally being a great sidekick, as well as possessing her own distinctive personality. The rest of the Voice cast are excellent, with the possible exception of Mrs.Lavish (her accents a little wavering). Micheal Sheard, returning to Who for what must be the hundredth time, is brilliant. The sound effects and background music are all stunning, as are the plot twists, which, although maybe predictable, still make a fantastic two hours of listening. Oh, and just to drive the nail home and make this a classic Who adventure, the gondoliers of the future have evolved in Amphibians. Score!

Doctor Who: The Stones Of Venice.

Product Info.
2xCD's
4 - Episodes
Running Time 120 Minutes

Positive.
1)Paul Magrs bonkers but brilliant script brings a freshness to a different type of audio adventure.
2)Paul McGann is brimming with enthusiasm here bringing the adventurous side out of the enigmatic Timelord.

Negative.
1)The bonkers script & wacky plot may not appear to some Doctor Who fan's who prefer a linear type adventure.

Cast.
The Doctor -- Paul McGann
Charley Pollard -- India Fisher
Orsino, a Duke -- Michael Sheard
Churchwell, a curator - Nick Scovell
Ms Lavish, an elderly lady -- Elaine Ives-Cameron
Pietro, a gondolier -- Barnaby Edwards
Vincenzo, a High Priest -- Mark Gatiss

Trivia.
1)Although the third story to be released this was in fact the first audio to be recorded.
2)Michael,Sheard has been in several Doctor who tv adventures, 'Pyramid Of Mars', 'The Invisible Enemy', 'Remembrance Of The Daleks', this was his final work before his death in 2005.

What's Up Doc?
The Doctor & Charley arrive in 23rd century Venice for a well deserved holiday unfortunately Venice is due to sink the following day as theres a curse placed upon Venice but by whom & why?

The street revellers seem happy as they host one last party before the are consumed to their fate, Death.

The Doctor & Charley discover that the Gonds have mutated to being part amphibian & want to rise up against there oppressors & are attacking the cult fanatics in robes & masks who are in fact searching for a legendary artefact hidden within Venices dark catacombs that may just free Venice from it's curse.

Format: Audio CD
Paul Magrs seems to me to be a writer whose never predictable. His story always surprise me with their fresh ideas and aldo his sense of humour. An audio play that manages to be serious and fun is hard to come across but this is the story that does it for me. Its the kind of story to sit down in the armchair and relax to listen to whilst chomping on a good old slice of cake. Its grown up with Michael Sheard giving his last performance in doctor who. Hes a great actor, sad that hes no longer with us. He did provide some memorable performances along side many aspects of the doc. Paul and Indias first story actually, but third produced. They sound like theyve known each other for years. They are excellent as the doctor and charley.

the other good thing about this story is the setting. well realised and the sound scape is particularly good on this audio. it genuinely feels like you are on a venice street. The romeo and juliet undertone is subtle but good as well. building up to a steady crescendo in the last episode. great stuff
