4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 7 Sep 2006
Format: Audio CD
But not the ones from the tv episode the girl in the fireplace. This is a completely different lot. An unfortunate coincidence, but that shouldn't be allowed to get in the way of a good bit of traditional doctor who.

The eighth doctor and his companions arrive in a world where time is frozen. And nasty clockwork robots edit people's existence during the frozen periods. This is a relatively primitive society that is in the grip of a nasty organisation, ruled over by a nasty machine, that run the planet with an iron fist, and root out anything that's vaguely inefficient.

This is clearly a satire on modern corporations and their business practises. The story works well in that respect, and never gets in the way of the rest of it, with the doctor and co. inspiring great change by their actions.

Good characters, and a decent story. It's not classic stuff, but it's good solid doctor who by a writer who knows how to produce it, and it's a very good listen

What's Up Doc.
You want to know about the Clockwork Men?

We work in their shadow, every tick & tock of our lives. We hear them in the workings of the Great Clock. We work hard, turn our hands -- but we all wind down in time, & that is when they come for us: when our time is up.'

The TARDIS lands in between times, in a time where this is no time. A time in which nothing can possibly be. But something is...

The Doctor, Charley & C'rizz are rats in the wheelwork, a threat to the schedule of a world where timing is everything, the seconds are counting down to a fateful future that has already happened. Unless they can beat the clock.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is the eightieth release from Big Finish in their range of full cast audio adventures starring classic Doctor Whos. It stars Paul McGann as Eight, India Fisher as Charlie, Conrad Westmaas as C'rizz and Ronald Pickup as Kestorian. There are 4 episodes, roughly 30-35 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 pictures of the cast and production notes.

This is an interesting and entertaining adventure for the Eighth Doctor and his companions. They land on a world where time seems frozen. Soon They are split up as the Doctor is pulled into the time stream, leaving Charlie and C'Rizz in the moment between the tick and the tock. What follows is a classic adventure in which the three must deal not only with a tyrannical regime but also the effects of time manipulation and all the mind bending logic problems that can entail.

With some sarcastic comments to make about the nature of bureaucracy and the tendency for it to take over at the expense of everything else, this has an intelligent and fun script. The actors embrace it wholeheartedly, especially McGann who relishes the scenes where the Doctor gets his Universe saving mojo back, and an in form Ronald Pickup who makes a deep impression as the noble Kestorian.

In all a cracking release from B ig Finish. Certainly one of the most entertaining adventures for this particular TARDIS crew. 5 stars.

Tick, tock.

An intriguing story featuring the Eighth Doctor, Charley and alien companion C'rizz; the three are now bedded in and work well as a unit. One of those 'timey-wimey' stories as the Tenth Doctor would say; it is engaging and interesting if a little convoluted - one that requires the listener's full attention.
