5.0 out of 5 stars Time Reef and Perfect World: "Everyone has some good in them." "Even her???" "I Like a challenge", 11 April 2013

This review is from: Time Reef (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)
This is the hundred and thirteenth release from Big Finish in their range of full cast audio adventures starring classic Doctor Whos. It stars Peter Davison as Five, Sarah Sutton as Nyssa and John Pickard as Thomas Brewster. There are two stories here, the first three episodes are an adventure called `Time Reef', the fourth episode a one part story called `Perfect World' that acts as a coda to the Thomas Brewster trilogy. Episodes are roughly 25-30 minutes each, complete with original theme music between each, and cliff hanger endings within the three parter. Two episodes per disc on 2 discs, and a short booklet with some pictures of the cast and production notes.

Following Brewster's return with the TARDIS, the Doctor finds that during its absence a few vital components have disappeared, leading to just a little bit of instability in it's internal dimensions. Five, Nyssa and Brewster soon find themselves stranded on some sort of reef in the middle of the vortex, with the TARDIS inoperable and an assortment of other timewrecked mariners who all seem to know Brewster and are rather anxious to have a word with him. There is also the mysterious Ruhk which seems to be a terrible monster, but the Doctor isn't so sure.

It's a great set up, and leads to some pretty interesting scenes as the Doctor unravels just what has happened and tries to save everybody. Well written and realised, it's a decent adventure, helped along by Nicholas Farrell's honeyed tones as the heroic Ganymede.

Perfect World sees once again the effects of Brewster's meddling whilst travelling on his own in the TARDIS, and is a rather touching little piece in which he tries to put right his mistake. As with most of the single part adventures that we have had, it is an excellent piece, and forms a fitting way for Brewster to part company with the Doctor. It seems a shame that such an interesting, well written and well played character should have such a short time in the series, and I am glad to see that he returns in later releases such as the Three Companions and The Crimes Of Thomas Brewster.

5 stars in total for this engaging and well made release.
