4.0 out of 5 stars the lucie miller show, 18 July 2008
This review is from: Sisters of the Flame (Doctor Who: The New Eighth Doctor Adventures) (Doctor Who: the Eighth Doctor Adventures) (Audio CD)
latest audio story in the second season of doctor who audio plays featuring paul mcgann as the eighth doctor and sheridan smith as his companion, feisty northern lass lucie miller.

as usual:

the story lasts for roughly fifty minutes.
the disc has a few minutes of interviews with cast and crew right after the story.
and concludes with a trailer for the next in the season.
paul mcgann and sheridan smith have an excellent chemistry together and are highly entertaining to listen to.
and the story stands alone so you can get into it without having heard all the previous ones in the range.

mind you this one is the beginning of a two part story and ends on a big cliffhanger that will be resolved in the next release in the season.

like the current doctor series on tv, scheduling reasons leave this one as what they call a 'doctor lite' story, in that the actor playing the doctor doesnt appear in much of it, and it's up to the companion to carry the story. and this sheridan smith as lucie certainly does. when the tardis, escaping danger, lands on a spaceship and strange creatures kidnap the doctor, what can she do?

come out fighting, that's what. a superb performance from sheridan smith takes lucie through a whole gamut of feelings. and she's not the only one who's trying to find the doctor. a group whom the doctor met once long before [in a certain story from the tv show that will be familiar to fans but you don't need to have seen to understand this] have plans, and the universe is threatened as a result.

what will happen to our heroes?

we'll have to wait till the next release to find out.

This is very much part one of a bigger story and whilst it's here to set a lot of things up, it's a very entertaining listen. roll on part two
