This is an excellent release that kicks off the trilogy with style. Davison is on form as Five, thrust into the middle of a highly charged situation, trying to calm things down and defuse things whilst trying to work out just what is going on. And Just what is going on? There is an excellent plot full of twists and turns that leads to what seems like the most final of conclusions. Some of the twists are visible from a mile off, others jump up and surprise you. It’s an excellent production, full of energy, action, political machinations, scary monsters and a masterful performance from Davison. 5 stars.
This is a fantastic story - in four parts, the action is never-ending, and I listened to the story from beginning to end, and then listened to it all straight away again. The Doctor finds himself having to take an active role in attempting to prevent everyone getting killed, and then attempting to keep the peace in the Drashani Empire, which Aliona and Kylo's wedding is designed to ensure. There are twists and turns aplenty in this story; people, places, motives, ambitions are all hidden and slowly revealed. The Doctor and those he is with are placed in deadly danger from start to finish, and the story races along at a frenetic pace.
The whole cast are great; Peter Davison is fantastic as usual as the Fifth Doctor (without companions) and I thought the real standout in the cast was Clive Mantle as Tuvold. Really great.
This is brilliant stuff and utterly totally recommended.Read more ›
For the past few years Big Finish have done trilogies involving three stories in a row for the same Doctor. But this one breaks that format. Because each story features a different Doctor. Travelling on their own. All dealing with events involving an interstellar empire.
This story features Peter Davison as the Fifth Doctor. Without any companions. [A brief continuity reference does tell you where this takes place in relation to tv stories from this era, and why he's on his own.] It's a four part story, spread over two cd's. Each episode runs just over twenty five minutes [approx].
It requires no prior knowledge of any other audio, so casual listeners can pick this one up and get into it very easily.
The Drashani Empire has been the scene of a war between two noble houses, both of whom have a claim to the Imperial Throne. A wedding has been arranged between a prince from one house and a princess from another, the aim of it being to unite the two houses and bring a new dawn to the Empire.
But the wedding galley caryring Princess Aliona has crashed onto a very dangerous planet.
Prince Kylo, her husband to be, is on a spaceship that is on it's way to find her. And the TARDIS happens to land on it. But danger lurks onboard, and the Doctor soon finds himself in the middle of a deadly situation...
The first episode does take it's time to establish the supporting characters. As a result the Doctor takes a little while to turn up. All the characters are quite good and do feel fully rounded.Read more ›
