One of the finest Dr Who audios,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Spare Parts (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)
I have been listening to the Big Finish Doctor Who dramas on and off since 2000 and I consider most of the stories to be good and entertaining, although some of them are a little disposable and unworthy of replaying or even keeping. A select few of them really stand out though and Spare Parts demands repeated listenings because it is such an excellent, dark and dramatic story; finely written, well acted and meticulously recorded/produced in details that are completely faithful to the early Cyberman stories as well as providing an excellent genesis story for the Cybermen and working as a chilling and atmospheric stand-alone drama for the more casual fan.
I don't want to go into too much detail about the production because I don't want to spoil it for you if you haven't heard it yet, but if you aren't a regular subscriber to the Big Finish Dr Who series and can't afford to buy all the CDs then I can highly recommend this story as one of the greatest. Easily in the top 5, slugging it out with "Jubilee" for the top spot.
