4.0 out of 5 stars Shakespeare spouting daleks with clocks and mirrors, 3 Aug. 2006
This review is from: The Time of the Daleks (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)
Big finish has the ability to wander into some very strange areas which often isn't a bad thing the lack of visual means that there is the ability to go further with a plot and for some reason it gives the daleks more menace. The general plot is difficult to explain in the semi near future the uk is ruled by an originally benevolent dictator who is slowly becoming more brutal against a band of rebels who are very unhappy because people are forgetting shakespeare enter the doctor. who belives there is a fissure in time and when he finds out there is a primitive time travel device using mirrors and clocks he believes that this could be the cause of it all until he sees a few daleks skulking around wanting to protect shakespeare.

As odd as it sounds it does all make a twisted sense and as usual McGann pulls it off with a aplomb, one of his strongest assets is that he takes it seriously and delivers it all with a strange caring tone, unfortunately as usual Charley is superflous but the rest of the characters interact well, the daleks are at there best when they are being devious which they are here. It all kind of works when it could have been crashingly painful and ends up being very entertaining.

I have to say, I think this reviewer has listened to this story once, and may not have paid much attention to the details. "unfortunately as usual is Charley is superfluous" - are you KIDDING? Every time the Daleks detected a source of Chronons in the hall of Clocks & Mirrors, it was Charley herself!!! The Daleks thought the source of Chronons was a fully charged-up Master Clock, but nope, it was Charley's body, teeming with Time Energy (Chronons). And if Charley hadn't grabbed hold of the Master Clock in the Sixteenth Century, she & Viola would never have got back to the present time!
