The Last: Is this the End?,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Last (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)
This is the sixty second release from Big Finish in their range of full cast audio adventures starring classic Doctor Whos. It stars Paul McGann as Eight, India Fisher as Charley and Conrad Westmaas as C'Rizz. This is the sixth of a series of adventures in the Divergent universe following the events of Zageus, in which there is a loose story arc. Knowledge of some of these previous adventures will help with the enjoyment of this. There are 4 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.
The Kro'ka sends the three travellers to a zone like no other. It quickly becomes evident that ther is no life anywhere on the surface of the planet, after some cataclysm. There are a few survivors underground, but is all as it seems? And just how sane are they?
It's an interesting adventure in which the Doctor gets to confront some of his darker fears, and deep pain is brought to the fore in a reference to two characters from the TV series. It's a well structured adventure in which Eight and his companions battle to survive. It also neatly starts to give a few explanations of the nature of the Kro'ka and the world which he has been shunting the three companions around.
In all an excellent production with a real sense of danger and drama. 4 stars.
