I loved the way David Warner played the Doctor in the previous play, and he's taken it to the next level. The Third Doctor's dedication to pacifism is shown right at the start, berating the ex-Brigadier for causing insult to their meglomaniac host, while admiting that he had neutralised a dangerous weapon. Equally, his ability to fight his oldest foes with great virulence are also displayed. Warner's Third Doctor comes over as being more combative than Pertwee's. The skewing of the show's timeline is defeated by making Davros a mythical creature at first, then making him the saviour of the Thals, but only so that he can as ever gain control over the Dalek's. Terry Molloy's portrayal of Davros is always at it's best when rational and logical. That is so here. The nazification elements of ''Genesis'' come out in the destruction of 'defective' Thals, the Dalek occupation of Skaro, curfews, resistance cells and such like. Nicholas Courtney never lets the side down, he's the perfect companion, while also being able to drive the plot when seperated from the Doctor. Hopefully Big Finish will bring the pairing back in the future.

just over five years ago now, big finish audios released a series of plays under the banner: doctor who unbound. these were audio doctor who stories that stories that had no connection to established doctor who continuity whatsoever. they could tell whatever stories they liked, often twisting the past of the show to tell new tales, and allowing actors who never played the doctor before to get a chance to take on the role.

one of them was called doctor who: sympathy for the devil. this had david warner playing the third doctor. the scenario was that after he was forced to regenerate and exiled to earth by the time lords, he didn't land in the 1970's [or whenever those stories were set] and end up working with UNIT, rather he landed in hong kong in 1999, there meeting up with retired UNIT head alistair gordon lethbridge-stewart. at the end of that tale alistair and the doctor, who had regained control of his tardis from the time lords, set off travelling around the universe.

It's been a long wait, but finally the third doctor who never was is back!

david warner would always be top of my lists for actors who would have been great in the role of the doctor on tv. the doctor he plays here is smart, impatient, always eager to cut to the heart of the problem, and has a feeling that he's got lost time to make up for. he also has a quiet but determined sense of moral authority. this version of the brigadier is a man looking for a change in life, but still a consummate soldier.

the story is spread across two discs. the first disc starts with a trailer for the forthcoming third season of eighth doctor and lucie miller audios, and ends with a track containing twelve minutes of the score for the story.

This is the eighth of the ‘Unbound’ series of audio adventures from Big Finish. Released between 2003 and 2008, this was a series that asked a lot of ‘what if’ questions about the show and produced a range of fascinating stories. It ran for 8 releases, and is some of the best work to have come out of Big Finish productions. The original series was released in 2003, this release was released in 2008 and the second of two specials that revisited characters from the original run. The story is in 4 half hour episodes on two discs.

This episode revisits the alternative third Doctor played by David Warner in ‘Sympathy for the Devil’ and his friend Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart played by the ever reliable and much missed Nicholas Courtney.

The Doctor and his friend are travelling the universe having some fun adventures when they land on a planet named Skaro. What follows is a sort of alternative ‘Genesis Of The Daleks’, as the Doctor becomes aware of the legend of Davros (played by Terry Molloy, who was clearly relishing the script and giving it his considerable best). Suddenly the tables are turned and the Doctor is forced to make choices that would usually be unthinkable, while the Brigadier really comes into his own and finally finds his place in the Universe.

The three leads are superb, Warner convincing as an arrogant yet compassionate alternative third Doctor, Molloy on excellent form as the eternally crafty and scheming Davros. It is Nicholas Courtney however who steals the show, as this alternative Brigadier is finally given the chance to be the man he should have been.

Masters of War’ was written by Eddie Robinson and directed by Jason Haigh-Ellery. ‘The Unbound’ has dealt with alternate Doctor’s and what if scenario’s, and has been one of the most entertaining Big Finish ranges with its many highs and lows. ‘Masters of War’ is the sequel to ‘Sympathy for the Devil’. This is my favourite of the ‘Unbound’ range, it’s more balanced than either ‘Auld Mortality’ or ‘Deadline’ and has the same inventive story telling that made those titles so great.

The Doctor has decided to take his new friend Alistair on a trip and after have a time of it they end up on Skaro. After agreeing to help the Thals fight the Daleks the Doctor discovers the existence of Davros the long lost Dalek creator. The Doctor and Alistair capture a Dalek and re-programme it to think it’s Davros causing infighting between Daleks that can’t decide whether Davros has undergone full Dalek conversion. While the Daleks squabble and fight our heroes strike, but there is a surprise visit to the planet from the Quatch. The Quatch are beings from another dimension.

Nicholas Courtney is the Brigadier, doesn’t matter which version he just is. David Warner on the other hand feels like an archetypal classic series Doctor even though he never was. Davros played by Molloy is an alternate version as are the Daleks. These versions are ostensibly the same but with differences. The casting is faultless, not just the main characters who are mostly played by their original actors but also the supporting actors. The music and production values are consistent with the rest of the range but the Quatch voices are ridiculously quiet at times. The Quatch grew on me over the course of the story.
