This is the hundred and twenty third release from Big Finish in their range of full cast audio adventures starring classic Doctor Whos. It stars Paul McGann as Eight and features a variety of companions. There are four episodes, roughly 25-30 minutes each, complete with original theme music between each. There are four stand alone episodes, each with a different companion. 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 first disc. There is a treat for regular listeners in the form of the fourth 10 minute segment of a twelve part adventure called `The Three Companions' on the end of disc 2.

Benny's Story - A fun opening story that brings back one of my favourite of the Seventh Doc's early companions, the incomparable Bernice Summerfield played by Lisa Bowerman. Here she is hired for an archaeological dig that turns up a TARDIS key. Pretty soon Eight is on the scene and he and Benny are plunged into a dimension tearing history bending adventure with a great concept at it's heart. As well as Benny as a companion, the story looks long and hard at the Doctor's relationship with the TARDIS, in an interesting fashion. It's a cracking opener, full of energy as Eight and Benny bounce off each other and clearly have a lot of fun saving reality as we know it.

Fitz's Story - This episode sees the Doctor and Fitz Kleiner investigating a company that are making TV adverts. Adverts that feature the Doctor. Naturally narked he sets off to find out just what is happening while Fitz acts as back up and chats up anything with a pulse.

By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 27 Aug. 2009
latest doctor who audio play from big finish, and a rather special release which requires a bit of explanation for casual listeners and those who havent read every doctor who novel published since 1991 or who don't read the official magazine.

in books and in the comic strip in the magazine, the eighth doctor had quite a few different companions. some of them appear here in one part adventures. but don't worry if you're not familiar with them as they all introduce themselves in short scenes at the start of each story.

the first one involves professor bernice summerfield, wisecracking hard drinking vivacious interstellar archaeologist, who appeared in books with the seventh doctor and then one with the eighth. and who has been in two seventh doctor audios as well. here she meets the eighth when on a dig. her mysterious employer turns out to be seeking a tardis key. and you can guess who it belongs to. the doctor and benny have to run for their lives and figure out why the woman wants a tardis so much. and where all tbose dinosaurs suddenly came from...

this one takes a little while to get going, but after about ten minutes you do get into it as benny and the doctor make a fun team. it's thirty five minutes long though, which feels about five minutes more than required. the villainess gets a bit tiresome. and whilst there's some clever plotting involving time paradoxes a lot of it feels a bit over familiar. nice final scenes between benny and the doctor though.

next it's a story for fitz kreiner, twenty seven year old londoner from 1963. a cockney wide boy out to impress the ladies, he and the doctor investigate an organisation that promises to protect a world from alien invasion. only the real threat comes from a different direction....

I like the 5th doctor collections of stories better. I didn't much like the stories of Izzy and Fitz and the story with Benny was okay. The only one I really like is the Mary Shelly one.
