By Victor HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 22 Jan. 2013
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is the sixty second release from Big Finish in their range of full cast audio adventures starring classic Doctor Whos. It stars Paul McGann as Eight, India Fisher as Charley and Conrad Westmaas as C'Rizz. This is the sixth of a series of adventures in the Divergent universe following the events of Zageus, in which there is a loose story arc. Knowledge of some of these previous adventures will help with the enjoyment of this. There are 4 episodes, roughly 25-30 minutes each, complete with original theme music between each, and cliff hanger endings. Two episodes per disc on 2 discs, and a short booklet with some pictures of the cast and production notes.

The Kro'ka sends the three travellers to a zone like no other. It quickly becomes evident that ther is no life anywhere on the surface of the planet, after some cataclysm. There are a few survivors underground, but is all as it seems? And just how sane are they?

It's an interesting adventure in which the Doctor gets to confront some of his darker fears, and deep pain is brought to the fore in a reference to two characters from the TV series. It's a well structured adventure in which Eight and his companions battle to survive. It also neatly starts to give a few explanations of the nature of the Kro'ka and the world which he has been shunting the three companions around.

In all an excellent production with a real sense of danger and drama. 4 stars.

The Last is an interesting title to say the least. Not particularly Dr Who-ish but not so un-Who to put me off. Opening with what seems like the standard in the new season - a verbal exchange between the Doc and the mysterious Kro-Ka, this story benefits greatly from a spectacular sound crew. The world of Bortresoye is a dank and arid wasteland shredded by nuclear war and the music and sound effects present throughout pull all the punches in making sure you know that. The plot is slightly convuluted and the resolution is unfortunately quite unsatisfactory, but the voice acting is as usual superb - perhaps more than usual as a result of several plot points i don't wish to spoil. The theme is obviously anti-war and there is much discussed regarding the nature of humanity and its view on destruction, and we have the Doctor to thank for constantly hammering this message home. By no means my favourite of the Big Finish range but also by no means my least favourite, i would class this particular drama as a middle ground. Worth a listen, but there are other better ones you should obtain first.

"Trapped on a dying world, the Doctor and Charley come face-to-face with those responsible for the war to end all wars, while C'rizz tries to understand what has happened and learns the terrible truth.

"Powerful forces are at work on Bortresoye that not even a nuclear holocaust can tame; natural forces that have excited the interest of Excelsior, the self-proclaimed saviour of her people.

"With Charley immobilised and C'rizz left to battle against the elements with some of the victims of war, one final, desparate hope of escape presents itself to the travellers.

"But who will be the last to leave the planet? Who will have to stay behind? And will the Doctor, Charley and C'rizz live long enough to find out?"

"The Last", by Gary Hopkins, maintains the imaginative streak shown in "Faith Stealer", building Big Finish's second Divergent Universe season into a more consistent and cohesive whole than the previous one.

This time, the Doctor, Charley and C'rizz find themselves caught up in the aftermath of a nuclear holocaust, in the ruins of an alien city ravaged by a nuclear winter; and, true to Big Finish Productions' high standards, the devastation and hostile climate is conveyed to perfection by the combination of fantastic sound design and very atmospheric music. It is bleakness at its truest.

A small guest cast play the last few survivors of the war on Bortresoye, holed up in a government bunker under the watchful eye of their leader, Excelsior (Carolyn Jones). Jones plays Excelsior very convincingly, and as the play goes on we witness her descent from delusion into total madness, without Jones' performance ever becoming OTT or unconvincing.

Right, previous reviewers have included as much plot exposition as is needed so I will aim to simply give my thoughts on quality and relevance. Whilst not my favourite pair of companions, Charley and C'rizz spark off each other well here, their latent animosity slowly bubbling to the surface, seemingly unnoticed by The Doctor. McGann delivers his usual polished performance, this time reigning in some of his more mawkish traits and keeping the Roger Moore-esque one-liners at bay for most of the story. Carolyn Jones gives a suitably histrionic performance as the homicidally self-absorbed Excelsior; seemingly oblivious to the fact that she is queen of nothing but a dead-world and its ragged survivors of the war she initiated. Where this offering comes undone though is halfway through the adventure when it becomes clear that the depths of intrigue and interest that were hinted at from the start are never going to be realised and the intrusive sci-fi jargon and insubstantial plot are unfortunately left exposed.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Last Survivors 21 Mar. 2015
By Adam Graham, Superhero and Detective Fiction Author - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Doctor, Charley, and C'Rizz find themselves stranded in a dying world suffering from nuclear Winter, the Doctor and Charley are injured and taken to an underground shelter where the world's leader Excelsior is planning for her Victory speech and getting a gown seemingly unaware that her people are all dead while the government ministers try to plot an escape.

This is a bleak production, but a brilliant one as well. As a cautionary anti-War tale, there are few Doctor Who stories that The story is filled with great psychological moments, as well as an eerie mystery regarding the ghost C'Rizz is seeing, which the Doctor is initially dismissive of.

Carolyn Jones is superb as Excelsior and the cast shines. For the first time, I really connected with C'Rizz as a character. His concern for Charley is touching. Charley is paralyzed in the first part and struggles with many key questions but an understated way. She does manage to see through Excelsior in a solid scene.

The High Concepts that characterize the best of the Divergent Universe are here. The eerie sound of Excelsior's speech being broadcast to a population that's no longer alive is a chilling audio image.

I do feel the ending, which served as a fix, was also a bit of a cheat. Still, this is solidly written and moving piece that brings Doctor and Companions to life brilliantly.

3.0 out of 5 stars Starts at the top and rolls downhill... 11 May 2009
By Peter Ingemi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Doctor Who the last brings to mind the close of David Tennant's second season Doctor Who - The Complete Third Series. It starts off very strong, becomes average in the middle and finishes very poorly.

We begin with the doctor confronting his past and some of his late companions, Apparently the writer of The Boy That Time Forgot (Doctor Who) ignored this episode. He then finds himself and his companions in a post nuclear holocaust. Meanwhile the survivors deep in a bunker massage their leader Madame Excelsior with thought of victory parades and gowns etc etc etc.

As you might suspect they shortly find their way into the bunker but not without disaster as we see the excelsior go madder and madder to the point of murder.

There are one or two bright spots; Charley dealing with her paralysis Crizz dealing with the loss of Charley but as one by one the supporting characters are eliminated the story nears a climax that resolves the story. It's interesting but doesn't hold the story built above it.

The performances are better than the material, particularly Conrad Westmaas as CRizz. Carolyn Jones as Madame Excelsior is pretty good in her role as well. You find yourself hating her very much. The fatalistic ending perhaps fits the 8th doctors character per Dr Who Twin Audio CD Neverland (Doctor Who)and Scherzo (Doctor Who) but it just doesn't work. In fact the crash was so bad it really spoilt the whole thing.

Of the episodes 8th doctor episodes I've heard so far it ranks with Dr Who Phobos (Dr Who Big Finish) and Invaders from Mars (Doctor Who). This is not proud company.

Buy it if you must to complete the set.
