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!

Released in 2010, this was the second release in the second season of Lost Stories from Big Finish, in which scripts that were written for Dr. Who on the television but never made are brought to life for the audio medium. Included in this set is an unmade Second Doctro set, and the unmade pilot for a series centered on the Daleks, following their original exit from the Dr. Who TV series in 1967.

The first lost stories series was a set of full cast audio dramas featuring the Sixth Doctor. However, for these 2nd Doctor stories Patrick Troughton was unavailable to reprise the role, so an alternative approach had to be found. The storiy is therefore narrated by Frasier Hines and Wendy Padbury (Jamie McCrimmon and Zoe Herriot from the TV series), with them acting their own characters and providing voices for all the others. This works very well, especially as Hines does an incredible impression of Patrick Troughton, and he totally brings the character of the Second Doctor back to life for us.

The story is a comedic one in nature, and plays up to the visual comedy that Troughton brought to the role, the bandy legged running around and the expressions on his face. The script manages to convey these elements in audio with ease, never feeling over strained. I have to say that I loved this story, sort of a Doctor Who meets Porridge mash up. In fact, whenever the main villain, The Glorious Babs, was mentioned I could just hear Ronnie Barker in my head saying “There was one in particular. Marvellous Babs. I can’t remember her name but she had marvellous Babs…” The script is pretty much of its time though, and some of the aspects might seems a bit outdated and even sexist to today’s audience.

I found this is 'Doctor Who' box set very enjoyable!

This is 'The Second Doctor Box Set' from the Lost Stories range of Big Finish audios. It is spread across four CDs and contains two stories and a bonus features disc.

The first story is 'Prison in Space', a Second Doctor story that was originally meant for TV but has now been turned into an audio drama by Big Finish. It is a four-part story on Discs 1 and 2 and stars Frazer Hines and Wendy Padbury narrating and performing the story as Jamie and Zoe.

The second story is 'The Daleks: The Destroyers'; an unaired TV pilot episode for an American spin-off series with the Daleks. It is a 70-minute long episode on Disc 3 and stars Jean Marsh as Sara Kingdom. I found this odd as surely this episode should be featured with 'The First Doctor Box Set'.

I've recently had this box set signed by writer Simon Guerrier at Big Finish Day 6 in January. 2015. I enjoyed 'Prison in Space' more than 'The Daleks: The Destroyers'. But it's still a good box set.

'PRISON IN SPACE'
I love 'Prison in Space'! I enjoyed it so much and it's such a shame this story never got made for TV. It contains a gripping plot and is wonderfully performed by Frazer Hines and Wendy Padbury.

This story has a long history. In 1968, producer Peter Bryant and script editor Derrick Sherwin commissioned Dick Sharples to write a light-hearted adventure for the Doctor, Jamie and Zoe.

Dick came up with a four-part story about a futuristic Earth featuring a woman-dominated society. Sadly, Dick Sharples' scripts didn't make it to TV was replaced with 'The Krotons' by Robert Holmes.
