By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 13 Nov. 2007
Format: Audio CD
Another audio adventure for the fifth doctor who and his companion peri [not clear whether this is pre or post their time with other audio companion erimem]. in this three part story, each episode of twenty five minutes in duration, the tardis crew are on a planet studying the plant life when they are drawn into a conflict between the military and scientists from a human colony, and the local aliens. the military use giant robots for attack and defense, and are not getting on with the aliens. and the leaders of the two human groups are a separated married couple. will their rivalry tear this world apart?

There's nothing too exceptional about this story but it's perfectly decent for what it is, telling a tight and self contained tale in three parts. the characters are all well written but for all their depth do tend to act more out the needs of the plot than character. but the tardis crew do get some excellent moments, and the actors rise to these with gusto.

The fourth episode on the disc is a one off story again featuring the fifth doctor and peri called urban myths, in which three time lords are having a meal before they hunt down the man they've been sent to kill. the doctor. you quickly realise things aren't what they seem.. a slight but fun little tale.

both discs end with the usual interviews with the actors involved.

Not the best audio story ever, but not bad

This is the ninety fifth release from Big Finish in their range of full cast audio adventures starring classic Doctor Whos. It stars Peter Davison as Five and Nicola Bryant as Peri. There are two stories here, the first three episodes are an adventure called Exotron, the fourth episode a one part story called Urban Myths. Episodes are roughly 25-30 minutes each, complete with original theme music between each, and cliff hanger endings within the three parter. Two episodes per disc on 2 discs, and a short booklet with some pictures of the cast and production notes. There are also some interviews with cast and crew at the end of the both the first and second discs.

Exotron is a pretty run of the mill Doctor story, with Five and Peri facing down giant robots and giant hyenas on a colonial outpost world. It's for the most part a well done tale, and even though it uses lots of old ideas and there are no real surprises the performance of Davison just about saves it and lifts it to a three star story.

The star of this disc, however, is the one part adventure Urban Myths. Keeping you slightly off kilter for most of it's run time, it is everything Who should be - unexpected, funny, thoughtful. Perfectly acted, especially by Davison and Bryant who relish playing OTT versions of their usual characters, it's a delightful tale, worth five stars and worth getting this release for.

In all 4 stars for a so-so main adventure and a stonkingly good add on.

There are interviews with cast and crew at the end of both discs, Big Finish were getting the hang of these by now and they are starting to be alittle more interesting and revealing than the first few were.

This story, three parts of the four episodes on the two cds (last episode is a stand-alone story - more below) started off with a whiz and a bang and seemed set to roar into life as a great all-round Fifth Doctor adventure. Somewhere along the way, I felt it fizzled out a little bit - too much handwringing about lost relationships from some of the characters let the overall plot down a wee bit.

However, there were some standout moments Shreeni was great, and the Farakosh and Exotron sound effects were fantastic. The Doctor and Peri were in good form. The story was a little ... contrived maybe? And a little predictable ... but overall not a bad effort.

The last episode on the second cd is a stand-alone story, Urban Myths, which was really rather amusing - three CIA agents plot to get rid of the Doctor - but why? And what was really behind the apparent events on Poytee. This is a great little story, and the three CIA agents are brilliantly played - particularly Co-ordinator Harom.

Good - possibly very good - but not great Doctor Who.

Despite the impressive cover this story is less than the sum of its parts. The bonus one part story 'Urban Myths' is the best bit; witty, fun and sly, it perfectly captures the mood it sets out to create.
