Fun with a decent plot as well,
This review is from: Max Warp (Doctor Who: The New Eighth Doctor Adventures) (Doctor Who: The Eighth Doctor Adventures) (Audio CD)
As already noted this episode starts out as Top Gear in space with Funky Board, Garden as the non-PC host, the Ferret and for me the best casting of James Fleet as the boring one. The wider setting is a space ship show where the Kith empire are collaborating with the humans in the name of peace, there having been a bloody war in recent memory. The Kith are a wonderful strange alien with a ludicrous West Country accent that make me chuckle whenever I hear them.
The Doctor as ever solves the mystery of the murder(s) and prevents inter-stellar war via Lucie uesting as Lucie Vauxhall Nova on the Max Warp show which gives her and the Clarkson-esque Garden plenty of stereotypical lines. This is even kept up to the end where Lucie rates the TARDIS (Time and Relative Dimensions in Shed) because it is a nice shade of blue!
Plenty to like here, some parody and a decent couple of twists.
