4.0 out of 5 stars Another Celebratory Release, 30 Dec 2008
By 
This review is from: Forty Five (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)
Following on from 100, Forty-Five is Big Finish's latest release this time celebrating the 45th Anniversary of Doctor Who. Like 100 this is made up of 4 single part episodes, each by new authors to the Big Finish range. While it's a nice introduction to each of the authors works. I'm hesitant to say that giving a one-part story like this is the best way to do it.

The first episode is False Gods by Mark Morris (recognisable as a writer for the books range). The idea is quite nice, but is brought to a conclusion rather abruptly. It could have filled out a bit more time I expect, unfortunately it only had the one part

The next story is Order of Simplicity by Nick Scovell. It's quite an interesting idea, but the science hangs together rather loosely... nonetheless a nice idea.

Casualties of War is the next episode, possibly the weakest plot of them all. Yet having said that there is some very interesting character development with Ace and Hex - dropping some considerable hints hopefully to be explored later and with a great concluding line.

The Word Lord concludes the release, this is perhaps the strongest albeit most ridiculous story. Set in the near future, the number 45 seems to be everywhere in a top secret diplomatic bunker and a seemingly impossible being is up to no good.

With such a wide cast/authorship this has some of the best interviews I've heard and are well worth listening to. All in all nothing to mark it out, distinctly average.
