5.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable, well-written romp, 7 Aug. 2005
This review is from: The One Doctor (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)
While the concept of dodgy characters impersonating the hero(es) of a show for personal gain certainly isn't new, The One Doctor brings the idea to Doctor Who with a fresh and often cheeky spin.
Colin Baker proves that he really did have the mettle to take on the role of the Doctor and was wasted during his all-too-brief stint as the Doctor on the TV series. Bonnie Langford is also a pleasure to listen to, retaining the bubbliness of of Mel from the TV series without any of the grating qualities the fans despised. The interplay between Chistopher Biggins and Clare Buckfield as the phony Doctor and his companion Sally-Anne is also great fun.
The play avoids most of the pitfalls that the audios can suffer ("Look Doctor, what's that slimy-looking creature hiding behind that enormous grey rock over there?") and often has some subtle (and affectionate) digs at the TV series, even Big Finish does not escape unscathed. Watch out for the hilarious robotic double act in part three.
Purists may take offence at the irreverent tone toward the series, but there's something here for just about everybody else to enjoy. If you're new to the Big Finish audio plays, this is a great place to start.
