More Poe than Drew,
This review is from: Nevermore (Doctor Who: The Eighth Doctor Adventures) (Audio CD)
This episode should be all about Tamsin Drew's first adventure aboard the TARDIS, instead I felt that her story was swamped by the homage to Edgar Allen Poe that was the background and foreground to this story. It starts well with a mysterious cat in the TARDIS, strange alien landscapes and bizarre Raven-esque robots squawking 'Nevermore' at the drop of a hat, but soon becomes so overladen with Poe references and imagery that I lost the sense of the underlying mystery and of how Tamsin would develop as a character.
For me this is a pity, all the usual good Big Finish stuff is here, quality acting, production and so forth, it just didn't work well as a piece for me.

Absolutely right. Tamsin comes off a poor second to the Poe references.
