4.0 out of 5 stars return to peladon, 26 Feb 2008
This review is from: Doctor Who - The Bride of Peladon (Big Finish Adventures 104) (Audio CD)
another audio adventure for the fifth doctor who. with his companions peri and erimem. This is a four part story, each episode running twenty five minutes. and there are two to a disc.

The usual trailer for the next main big finish release is absent from the start. we get a trailer for the eighth doctor story dead london instead. this is probably because the condemned has a big surprise in it. But more on that when it comes out.

This story is a sequel to the two third doctor tv stories that were set on the planet peladon. It doesn't make any real concession for those who haven't seen them but you shouldn't have any problem getting into it if so.

The tardis crew arrive on the planet a good few years after the doctor was last there. a royal wedding is about to take place. miners are dying. An alien criminal is up to no good. can the planet survive and prosper? and whose voice is calling out to people?

There's a lot going on here, and as a result the doctor doesn't actually get that much to do in the first three parts. But it's all involving and well acted enough such that you're not really bothered by this.

Episode three ends with a terrific cliffhanger that will please long term fans.

The last scene of episode four starts out well but goes on a little too long, the very final moment being a slightly obvious moment. but that's the only problem with an otherwise very good story. It's good traditional doctor who and it's very involving and a pleasure to listen to.

Both discs end with the usual interviews with cast and crew. These are a little shorter than usual, and that helps because it makes them short and to the point.

The last track on disc two contains trailers for other stories featuring this particular tardis crew.

A very good audio all in all.
