5.0 out of 5 stars When destinies collide, 5 Oct 2010
This review is from: Project: Destiny (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)
And so the Doctor once more encounters the Forge and in particular Nimrod. Many years have passed both for the Forge and for Big Finish fans, in the interim we have worked out that Hex is in fact the son of Cassie Schofield mentioned in Project Lazarus and now about to meet his destiny (and more) as he finds out who his mother was and the role the Doctor played in her death.

The plot is another abandoned London, alien threat to the world (the Contaminants) and the usual friction between time-travellers and military. Largely formulaic though some good scenes for Ace and Hex when isolated from the others.

Curiously (and this may be an artefact of the recording sequence overall) this story happens before the seventh Doctor has been to the Forge in Project Lazarus so the narrative only refers back to the sixth Doctor portion of that story. Tricky but it does work.

I purchased this for closure of the Forge arc - I much prefer Colin Baker's Doctor to McCoy's (no offence intended) as the latter seems to spend too much time being angry. As a piece we have all the usual excellences of recording, music, sound effects and some wonderful extras giving some insight into just how this story finally made it to our ears. It does this and also tells a good story in its own right.

Overall a very good piece
