Top Customer Reviews

By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 13 Aug. 2014
Format: Audio CD
A new Doctor Who audio. Featuring Colin Baker as the Doctor and Nicola Bryant as his companion Peri.

This returns to a format Big Finish have used on occasion. In that, instead of it being part of a bigger trilogy, it's four stand alone one part stories. Which run from twenty six to thirty minutes [approx.]. Thus casual listeners can get into this one quite easily without needing to have heard any other release first.

There are two stories on each disc. All of them centre round a common theme. Perception.

The first story: 'Breaking Bubbles,' sees the Tardis land in some gardens that belong to a deposed Empress. But there is far more to the location, and to the Empress, than meets the eye.

What at first feels as if it is going to be a rather standard story of tyranny and revolution against it manages to become something more. Since it takes the central concept in two ways, by doing interesting things with the settings. And also with the characters. There are no out and out good guys or baddies in this story. Just characters with lots of shades of grey. All of which makes for some interesting moral food for thought for the listener to consider.

'Of chaos time the', the second story, sees the Doctor finding himself moving through recent time. In a non linear manner. With no idea of what is happening or why. A dangerous experiment is going on, and can the Doctor do something about it?

This has to get going via narration from the Doctor to get you used to what is happening, which is a narrative device that succeeds quite well. The narrative structure of the story does mean it is one that you will really have to work hard in order to get your head around, and you could obviously find it very confusing.

I really like the combination of Peri and the 6th Doctor! Good to see them paired up again!

HASH(0x907957f8) out of 5 stars A strong collection of great short stories! 11 Jan. 2016
By Brian Reaves - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I love it when Big Finish puts together short stories into one release. They've done it before with the Eighth Doctor and with the Sixth, and now we get another one. You would think there would be a weak story among these, but since they are all one-parters there is no time for long set-ups and character development. Instead, we are treated to the best parts of a story without any lag. I think Baker and Bryant play off each other better than any other companion in the Sixth Doctor range, so each is good. The best story is the last one, involving a very special young man and a set of garden gnomes (yes, you read that right). No weak spots in this release so don't miss this one!
HASH(0x9077f0e4) out of 5 stars A Great Four-Pack of Listening Fun! 19 July 2015
By Joseph Baneth Allen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Just finished listening to "Doctor Who #188 - Breaking Bubbles And Other Stories" released by Big Finish Productions.
In this outing of audio shorts comprised of "Breaking Bubbles," "Of Chaos Time The," "An Eye for Murder," and "The Curious Incident of the Doctor In the Night-Time," the Sixth Doctor and Peri find themselves tackling a unique set of adventures - each with its own particular mystery that must be solved, and nothing is quite as what it seems.
In "Breaking Bubbles," Peri is taken prisoner by the deposed Empress Safira Valtris after the TARDIS lands in her palatial gardens - which are in a space ship transporting her to a prison world - but is she really as evil as her guards are making her out to be?
"Of Chaos Time The," the Doctor must fight to restore his personal timeline and prevent a chrono-bomb from exploding.
"An Eye for Murder" finds Peri taking the lead in figuring out who is sending poison pen letters at St. Ursula's College after being mistaken for a famous mystery author - much to the annoyance of the Sixth Doctor because the rules of the college forbid men on campus.
"The Curious Incident of the Doctor In the Night-Time" is a heartwarming story about a boy with autism and how he solves a mystery involving gnomes and the Sixth Doctor; as well as life and learning how to time travel.
Strongly Recommended!
Five Stars!
