5.0 out of 5 stars Dreamtime: A dream of an adventure for Seven, Ace and Hex, 6 Feb. 2013
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dreamtime (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)
This is the sixty seventh release from Big Finish in their range of full cast audio adventures starring classic Doctor Whos. It stars Sylvester McCoy as Seven, Sophie Aldred as Ace and Philip Olivier as new companion Hex Schofield. There are 4 episodes, roughly 25-30 minutes each, complete with original theme music between each, and cliff hanger endings. Two episodes per disc on 2 discs.

Following the events of the 58th adventure, the Harvest, Hex now travels in the TARDIS with Seven and Ace. And the first alien world that they land on is a pretty weird one. A rock in space, which seems to have a large chunk of Australia in the form of Uluru and some very creepy statues on it. Pretty soon they are plunged into a weird adventure in the Aboriginal dreamtime, along with some other visitors to the rock, the Galyari.

I quite enjoyed this adventure. It is one of those which suits the particular Doctor very well. There is a scene of Seven emerging across a desert with umbrella in hand that you just cannot imagine any other aspect of the Doctor in. Ace gets some good moments, and Philip Olivier gets a meaty opportunity to make Hex into one of the great companions. It must be hard for him to join the well established and well loved pairing of Seven and Ace but he manages well, largely through the generosity of McCoy and Aldred. It's got all sorts of aspects, the return of one of the best Big Finish aliens the Galyari, some interesting ideas, well realised dreamscapes, all along with cracking action and cliffhangers. Added into the mix are a great performance from McCoy, with the Doctor at his most persuasive. And there is a cracking contribution from John Scholes as the charming, reassuring, wise Baiame. It's an all round cracking release, 5 stars.
