The Eighth Doctor had a long a controversial life within the monthly releases, ranging from sublime stories such as `Chimes before Midnight', real turkeys such as `Something Inside' and the whole series of experimental `Divergent Universe' adventures. During these adventures the Eighth Doctor's personality has changed from his original tiggerish self into a more melancholic, hardnosed and darker character. It really felt like time for a bit of a reboot for this Doctor, and this excellent release is just what the Doctor ordered.
The episode starts off with a rather clever introduction of a new companion. Lucie Miller thought she was going off to her first day in a new job, but all of a sudden she finds herself on a Time Lord witness protection scheme, though she has no idea what she witnessed. She is dispatched straight into a time lord safe house, the middle of the Doctor's TARDIS. Much to both her and the Doctor's annoyance. Pretty soon she finds out that travelling with the Doctor is not as safe as the Time Lords made it sound, as they land on a planet that has been devastated by an asteroid strike, and a certain race of motorised pepperpots are on their way to help the survivors. Everything is not as it seems, and pretty soon the Doctor and Lucie are up to their eyeballs in mad scientists, dodgy politicians and not-so-looney's predicting the end of the world and alien invasion.
This strikes just the right note.Read more ›
The thing about Paul McGanns doctor is he doesn't seem too bothered about exterminating the daleks themselves, and this story hints at that, as his doctor advocates their destruction. However, this is not a bad thing necesarily as I find these stories somewhat more scary than the TV show, which is also good at horror.
There is great chemistry between the doctor and his new companion Lucie, and Tom Cardwell's role is played brilliantly. It makes for an exciting drama which leaves you clamouring for the conclusion.
The plot is pleasantly twisty, the Daleks enjoyably and appropriately nasty, and the various "shades of grey" shown by the various other characters, not least the Dr's companion and the various people met around this plot. It's hard to describe much without giving the plot away, but anybody who grew up with Tom Baker's Dr Who, should feel right at home with this one as it contains all of the same elements, just as well delivered.
Blood of the Daleks Pt. 1 kicks off The New Eighth Doctor Adventures which takes the Eighth Doctor (Paul McGann) to Red Rocket Rising with his new companion Lucie Miller (Sheridan Smith) who appears through mysterious circumstances. As the Eighth Doctor tries figuring out the mysteries around Lucie and why the Time Lords have dumped her upon him, he has to save acting President Eileen Clint (Anita Dobson) and her people from his greatest enemy: the Daleks. But with the Daleks acting all friendly, things do seem a bit off. What is there hidden agenda and what are the secrets behind Asha (Hayley Atwell) and her late masters inhuman experiments?
Nicholas Briggs (Director/Executive Producer) directs this story perfectly and really gives McGann the respect his under-appreciated incarnation deserves. Its the first in an entire series dedicated to just the Eighth Doctor and begins what seems to be a long epic journey which I can't wait to see through to the end. Also Steve Lyons (Writer) writes a brilliantly dark story which captures both McGann's character and the Daleks to a teat. There really is chemistry between the two entities and the story really progresses that as well as developing many interesting characters who all fit into the dark journey that is ongoing through the two-part story.Read more ›
There is an ongoing story throughout this series of audios which involves lucie and the reason she ended up in the tardis.
This story starts at blistering pace, with lucie and the doctor meeting and the tardis then landing on a new world all in the space of a few minutes. the planet has been devastated by a disaster, but they've had an offer of help. from a certain alien race....
A hugely entertaining audio, that moves at great pace, tells a very good and compelling story, and has some great performances from all the cast. It ends on a cliffhanger that leads into the second disc. And the disc concludes with ten to fifteen minutes worth of interviews with the cast, which are fun to listen to.
A really good audio drama and well worth getting
