3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best start, 31 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Destination: Nerva (Doctor Who: The Fourth Doctor Adventures) (Audio CD)
When the BBC produced their 'enhanced' talking books with Tom Baker as the Doctor (Hornet's Nest) I found it tedious and dull beyond compare. This wasn't the way I wanted to hear the 4th Doctor and bemoaned the fact that it wasn't a Big Finish full cast production.
And then Big Finish announced they were to produce 4th Doctor full cast dramas... well I was over the Moon!

I pre-ordered a couple and this one arrived towards the end of January.
There was the theme I remember from my childhood and I settled back to listen to a cracking story. Only it isn't.

The actual story is slow and plodding, strange for such a short piece, with rather stilted dialogue from all concerned.
Tom sounds a little older but enough like his old self for me to visualise him, same with Louise. Generally the acting is good, as with nearly all of the BF plays, but this is just so boring.
After the initial excitement at the start of the story it just grinds to a halt and becomes a struggle to stay awake.

Hopefully the next release will be more exciting and up to the usual high standard for BF.

But one thing puzzles me - why are these only 2-part stories?
