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.Read more ›
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....Read more ›
