Product Description

Prison in Space adapted by Simon Guerrier A relaxing break for the Doctor and his companions Jamie and Zoe becomes something decidedly more sinister when they are arrested for trespass. But what has happened to the planet Earth? And how has the malevolent Chairman Babs gained control? As the Doctor and Jamie are incarcerated in a prison that they can never escape from, Zoe is forced to change sides... The Daleks: The Destroyers adapted by Nicholas Briggs and John Dorney In 1967, the Daleks were written out of Doctor Who as their creator, Terry Nation, prepared to launch them in their own TV series. Production was halted at the eleventh hour, but the script has survived - now making its debut on audio. When the crew of Explorer Base One is attacked by the Daleks, Space Security Agents Sara Kingdom, Mark Seven and Jason Corey are sent to investigate. They discover a plan that threatens the future of the entire galaxy...

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!

Format: Audio CD
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.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Scaroth, Last of the Jagaroth on 6 Nov. 2011
Format: Audio CD
Following on from the excellent Lost collections featuring the First, Sixth, Seventh and Fifth Doctors, comes this collection taken from the era of the Beatles, Cold War and pre-decimalisation; and it shows. Prison in Space is billed as an attempt by the (then) production team to 'lighten' the series up, so what we have is a Carry-On style romp, complete with domineering woman wearing skin-tigh t rubber uniforms, prat-falls aplenty, Jamie dressing up as an old lady, and most gruesome of all, a toad-faced female dictator falling in love with The Doctor..!
Whilst some of this is tongue-in-cheek fun, I feel it does nothing for the show at all, and is best seen as a nostalgic curiosity.
A disc full of extras gives more insight into the way Doctor Who was produced in the late 1960s, while another lost story featuring Space Agent Sara Kingdom and lots of Daleks, completes the collection.
