4.0 out of 5 stars waterworld, 30 Mar. 2009
This review is from: Orbis (Doctor Who: The New Eighth Doctor Adventures) (Doctor Who: The Eighth Doctor Adventures) (Audio CD)
first audio in a new season of adventures for the eighth doctor and his companion lucie miller. this resolves the cliffhanger that ended the second. and whilst you could get into it relatively easily without having heard that it's probably better to follow this in order as certain things will make better sense otherwise.

this story is complete on a single disc and has two episodes each of twenty five minutes duration.

the story follows on from the end of the previous season in that it sees lucie and a certain former enemy head off to find the doctor. the latter is on a rather strange planet, and some aliens have designs on the place.

the first episode flits back and forth between lucie the doctor and the aliens. the former scenes come to life the most thanks to some excellent dialogue. only in the last few minutes of the episode when lucie and the doctor are reunited does it really click, thanks to a surprising cliffhanger that will put you through as many emotions as lucie goes through.

this is like the first story for a new doctor on tv as he's not quite himself and takes a while to get together again. and they've added a story to go with it.

things do come together well in the second episode as the alien threat and a certain other problem with the planet combine to leave the three main characters facing some hard choices. all of which leads to an emotional ending you may not forget in a hurry.

do listen to the very end of the closing credits as there's a scene there.

and to the end of the disc for a trailer for the next in the season.

this is not a classic release and it does take a while to get going but it's solidly enjoyable and does what it needs to. and this particular doctor companion team have a great chemistry together so it's great to have them back
