5.0 out of 5 stars Goodbye Charley, we'll miss you, except..., 11 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Girl Who Never Was (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)
I have just caught up with this tale, having been a few years late in discovering Big Finish, and yes there was a lump in the throat and a tear in the eye despite my knowing what happens next (sort of until I listen to The Condemned).

Regardless of sentimentality, I was astonished by how good this was on many levels, and really provides further evidence to me that in many ways these Big Finish audios are better than the TV doctor in terms of narrative effort. And I include the ninth through eleventh Doctors in that.

In particular:

* The actors stay fresh - after a lot of stories (and I skipped Zagreus onwards) there is a lot of energy between the characters still
* The narrative is wonderful - a tightly choreographed dance between Charley in 1943 and the Doctor in 2008 (dipping in and out of 500,002) with Cybermen, someone who may be Charley when older but with amnesia and all sorts of other characters
* As ever the smallest part and most minor sound have all been thought about and all work to produce a whole

Suffice it to say that this is another gem from Big Finish. If you like me are a more recent convert to these tales, BUY THIS ONE!
