This review is from: Love and War (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)
During the `lost years' of Doctor Who following the TV show's cancellation at the end of the Eighties, various fans kept the flame alive, chiefly through Virgin's New Doctor Who Adventures that continued to be published for some six or so years and are credited with paving the way for the series' current return to the forefront of the BBC's drama output. Paul Cornell was one of the prime movers, responding to a request for original Doctor Who novels and producing this imaginative tale; arguably one of the best in the New Adventures range.
The audio CD adaptation is a real treat - Big Finish have a real knack for taking existing stories and imbuing them with new life whilst retaining the essence of the source novelization, and with McCoy and Aldred recapturing the spirits (and voices) of their younger selves perfectly, and Lisa Bowerman returning to voice Benny Summerfield, this is a superb audio drama from start to finish.
