HIGHLY ENTERTAINING.....4 and a half stars,
This review is from: Doctor Who - I.D. and Urgent Calls (Big Finish Adventures) (Audio CD)
Urgent calls really makes this package. It is such a cleverly written one episode gem, it should be made into a television story. Considering theres only two main stars its a great yarn. Doctor Who never seems to be lagging or lacking anything. Always new writers come on board and add onto the many adventures the good Doctor has had. And here is a prime example of a great mini adventure.
Im not saying ID isnt good, in part two and three it is, its just the first part of this story thats a little too long, and doesnt have an over abundance of great moments or interest. But from the end of episode 1, things get far better. Colin Baker is excellent of course, and those who say this seems to be a slide back to his catty edgetv days need to think that maybe this story is set before his vastly humanised other big finish audios you know. Dont take it all out on him for goodness sake. and another good thing in id is the return of the great Sara griffiths, shes so good in her role on Delta and the bannerman, and shes great here too, its just a shame she couldnt have had her delta accent on this play, but she plays too serious a role i suppose...still a pity though. The scandroids do have good voices too, this just would have been better if it was a two part story, But it is still far more interesting than nearly all rubbish on tv these days, but then again thats not hard. Doctor who is never totally rubbish! Never...
