4.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as The Condemned, but an interesting continuation of the story arc, 13 Mar 2009

This review is from: The Raincloud Man (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)
Barcode: 9781844353255

Having massively enjoyed The Condemned with it's blend of the 6th Doctor in a modern contemporary setting, i was looking forward to this follow-up release immesnely. As per-usual with Big Finish it is amazingly produced and turns out fantastic performances from the cast, but whereas The Condemnded presented a gripping, imaginative and tension-filled storyline, The Raincloud Man felt a little flat for me.

First off, it is great to see Patricia Menzies again, her character injecting energy and a keen sense of dry-humour into every scene she appears in. The 6th Doctor/Charley pairing also comes up trumps, their relationship developing further as Charley struggles to keep who she really is from the Doctor. There is a lot of underhand dealings going in in this story and as with The Condemned, Colin Baker's Doctor slots wonderfully into the crime/thriller genre.

Caught up in a mix of a hi-tech boat, gambling and battling alien races, there's a lot on offer here and things pick up in the 2nd half of the story. But whereas the Condemned felt slick and streamlined, there at times feels like there's perhaps just a little too much going on in this story.

Still, another enoyable addition to the Big Finish range and another stellar performance from Colin.
