5.0 out of 5 stars Kenya dig it? 6 Feb 2010
The latest Seventh Doctor audio from Big Finish is a beautifully understated human interest story, set against the backdrop of the Mau Mau rebellion in 1950s Kenya. The Time Lord is travelling alone, but soon hooks up with an old foe, and is reminded that no-one is wholly evil - not even a dyed-in-the-wool Nazi. With passing references to television serial `Silver Nemesis', the story is perfectly pitched for Sylvester McCoy's more Machiavellian Doctor; even as he saves the day he is still manipulating people and seeing a mounting death toll amongst those he encounters - McCoy has the role down pat by now, and this is a great script that eschews fast-paced drama and sci-fi shenanigans for a more nebulous and consequently even more menacing threat.
Disc 1 has the usual interviews with cast and crew; Tracey Childs and Sylvester McCoy are unsurprisingly the best interviewees of the bunch.

5)Klein's erasure from the timeline in (Audio: The Architects of History) altered the events of this story somewhat, The Klein from the proper timeline briefly mentioned that the Doctor had been in Kenya in 1953, No doubt the outcome of his visit stayed the same despite Klein's absence.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Thousand Tiny Wings: Doctor Klein I presume? 26 July 2013
This is the one hundred and thirtieth release from Big Finish in their range of audio adventures starring classic Doctor Whos. This one stars Sylvester McCoy as Seven, and sees a welcome return to the range for Tracey Childs as Klein, the Nazi scientist stranded in our timeline by the Doctor in the twenty fifth release, Colditz. The release has four episodes, two episodes per disc on two discs. Each episode is 25-30 minutes long and has cliffhanger endings and original theme music between each episode. There are some interviews with cast and crew at the end of disc one, and the end of disc two features the second to last ten minute segment of the Three Companions, in which the story appears to be coming to a thrilling climax.

A Thousand Tiny Wings is the first of a trilogy of stories featuring Klein, patiently waiting and desperate to restore her own time line, in which the Nazis won the second world war. She is in Kenya in the early `50s, trapped in a house with an assortment of upper class English Ladies and living in fear of attack from the Mau Mau. But why is she there? Enter the Doctor, travelling alone and arriving quite by chance. He and Klein reluctantly team up, to fight not only the very real threat of the Mau Mau, but also a hidden threat that is far more insidious and frightening, and forces Klein to confront some of her own beliefs.

This is a superbly written, directed and acted drama that really delivers on all fronts. From the tense drama of the house under siege and the paranoia that situation engenders, through to the well developed other threat, and finally the excellent characterisations and especially the philosophical arguments between Klein and the Doctor, the story hangs together really well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Farm under siege 25 Feb 2010
A new audio story for sylvester mccoy as the seventh doctor. This starts a trilogy of them which reunites him with klein, a nazi scientist from an alternate reality that no longer exists. The two first crossed swords in Colditz (Doctor Who) but you should be able to listen to this without having heard that.

The story runs for four episodes of roughly twenty five minutes each and is spread over two discs.

The Doctor and Klein meet again when the Doctor visits a farm in 1950's kenya. A remote place in a country currently in the grip of rebellion, and a place where several european women are awaiting news or rescue by the british army. The first part takes a while to set the mood but does this very well, all the characters being convincing as people of the time by virtue of their attitudes. The feel of being out in the middle of nowhere is achieved by virtue of minimal sound and music, thus when things happen suddenly it really makes you jump.

The women find something alien in the middle of all this. They then have that to worry about in addition to the rebels. And the story follows the classic doctor who model of an isolated place coming under siege from alien forces.

There are lots of moral debates about the rights and wrongs of the whole thing, and they are very interesting food for thought.

It also throws in some interesting trust issues when a new arrival reaches the farm. But are they telling the truth?

The resolution to the alien side of the plot is done via a long dialogue scene in part four. It's a little over familiar but does have a fair amount of originality also.
