5.0 out of 5 stars Ish... - Sticks and stones may break my bones but words can destroy the universe..., 25 Jun 2012

This review is from: ..Ish (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)
This is the thirty fifth release from Big Finish in their range of full cast audio adventures starring classic Doctor Whos. It stars Colin Baker as Six and Nicola Bryant as Peri. 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 pictures of the cast and production notes.

Six and Peri go off to an intergalactic lexicography conference to see an old friend of the Doctor's. A harmless enough place you'd have thought, but there is, as usual, danger stalking the corridors, and it isn't long before the Doctor is knee deep in suspicious deaths, suspicious suspects and the possible end of the universe.

It's a fun little four parter in which the writer gets to have fun with language, and Colin Baker has a lot of fun as Six showing off his knowledge of recondite words. He really is on form, showing Six in all his glory as the know it all show off. It's a charismatic performance, a pity he was never allowed to be this good in the TV series. Nicola Bryant is similarly in form as Peri, with a perfect hint of exasperation at the Doctor's antics. As I said, a really fun little adventure with a good natured charm. I loved it, 5 stars.
