This is the hundred and sixty fifth release from Big Finish in their range of full cast audio adventures starring classic Doctor Whos. It stars Peter Davison as a companionless Five. There are four episodes, roughly 25-30 minutes each, complete with cliffhangers and original theme music between each. Two episodes per disc on 2 discs, and a short booklet with some pictures of the cast and production notes. There are some interviews with cast and crew at the end of the second disc and a few minutes of the soundtrack at the end of disc 1. This is the first part of a trilogy of interlinked adventures, the second part will feature the Sixth Doctor and the third part the Seventh Doctor, giving us a multi Doctor story in which the various incarnations do not meet ‘on screen’, a great concept that Big Finish have toyed with in the past, but never fully committed to like this.

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 another in the brilliant Big Finish audio series, featuring original stories with the Doctor, in this case Peter Davison as the Fifth Doctor. This story takes place after the Arc of Infinity, the 1983 story in which Tegan is reunited with the Doctor and Nyssa in Amsterdam. In this story, Tegan and Nyssa are both in Amsterdam and the Doctor has arranged to pick them up. But the Tardis, being a little `wilful' as the Doctor admits, has taken him somewhere else: to a ship heading for the planet Sharnax, where the wedding galley of Princess Aliona has crashed. Board the rescue ship is Prince Kylo, her betrothed, Ambassador Tuvold, and troops and colleagues of the Royal House of Sorsha. Kylo and Tuvold are the only Gadarel representatives of the split Houses of the Drashani Empire.

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.

I have gotten hooked on Doctor Who audios and this is an excellent Peter Davison story that sees the 5th Doctor in an alien empire and caught up in a struggle between 2 rival families. The Prince and Princess of the rival families are to be married in a bid to end years of conflict and are on a ship that crashes onto a remote planet and The Doctor has to keep everyone alive. The great thing about these audios is you don't have to worry about poor effects or an ageing Peter Davison looking nothing like how he played The Doctor on tv so you can imagine this as a lost adventure from around 1983. A tense, gripping 4 parter that's the first in a trilogy with Colin Baker's 6th Doctor dealing with the repercussions from this story in part 2 and Sylvester Mccoy's 7th Doctor dealing with repercussions in the 3rd and final story. Aliens The Igris sound good in audio form and supporting cast are good while Davison is excellent.

By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 29 Oct. 2012
Latest Doctor Who audio story from Big Finish. The start of a new trilogy of them.

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.
