First released in 2007, this is the second episode of a of the second season of standalone releases for Paul McGann's Eighth Doctor outside of the monthly range of Big Finish releases. This is a one disc release, with a single 50 minute episode. There are some interviews with cast and crew at the end of the disc. And in all honesty, it is head and shoulders above the previous episode, the uninspiring `Dead London'.

This is a story that does what Paul McGann's Eighth Doctor does best - has fun. Landing in a boys and their toys space ship convention that looks a lot like Top Gear, The Doctor and Lucie are soon up to their eyebrows in an intergalactic mystery when one of the presenters meets a mysterious accident. Basing his method on the books of Agatha Christie, the Doctor sets off to investigate, while Lucie goes undercover to try and find evidence. At stake is the peace of the galaxy, so no pressure then...

This episode is really on fire. All of the cast are clearly having a blast, especially McGann and Smith who work really well together, and Graeme Garden, who relishes his role as the misogynist jean wearing ecologically unsound TV presenter and space ship reviewer. I wonder who was being taken off there? The resolution to the mystery is no less important or impressive than the fun being had throughout, so it works well in all departments. An extremely satisfying slice of Who, 5 stars.

As already noted this episode starts out as Top Gear in space with Funky Board, Garden as the non-PC host, the Ferret and for me the best casting of James Fleet as the boring one. The wider setting is a space ship show where the Kith empire are collaborating with the humans in the name of peace, there having been a bloody war in recent memory. The Kith are a wonderful strange alien with a ludicrous West Country accent that make me chuckle whenever I hear them.

The Doctor as ever solves the mystery of the murder(s) and prevents inter-stellar war via Lucie uesting as Lucie Vauxhall Nova on the Max Warp show which gives her and the Clarkson-esque Garden plenty of stereotypical lines. This is even kept up to the end where Lucie rates the TARDIS (Time and Relative Dimensions in Shed) because it is a nice shade of blue!

Plenty to like here, some parody and a decent couple of twists.

By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 26 Feb. 2008
Format: Audio CD
second in the latest series of audio plays to feature paul mcgann's doctor who and his current companion, sheridan smith playing feisty no nonsense lancastrian teenager lucie miller.

This, like the others in the range, is a complete story told in forty five minutes, and comes on a single cd. the rest of the cd [it runs an hour in total] contains interviews with the cast and crew, a trailer for the next story, and a couple of tracks giving the music from it on it's own. these two tracks are best described as interesting.

In this story the doctor and lucie arrive on an alien world as a spaceship is being tested as part of a tv show. this is a parody of the bbc car show top gear, and former goodies star graeme garden does a very good job playing the host. when a murderer strikes, the doctor and lucie turn detectives. can they find the killer, and prevent intergalactic war?

A hugely entertaining little story, with lots of comedy that arises from the characters and how they interact. thus there are several genuine laugh out loud moments. All the cast are very good and bring some good depth to their roles, and there are some clever twists and turns to the plot. come the solution, you will be surprised. but the clues are there.

A great little story, well up to the standard of this range

HASH(0x95366ff0) out of 5 stars A thoroughly entertaining romp 10 Dec. 2013
By Miss Scarlett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a brilliantly light accessible story- great fun. The Doctor (Paul McGann) has taken companion Lucie (Sheridan Smith) to a spaceship roadshow (basically Top Gear), complete with misogynist presenters and plenty of testosterone. However, when one of the drivers is killed, a murder mystery begins...

I'm not a sci-fi fan so I prefer it when it's light on science and high on entertainment. This is essentially a Nancy Drew/Scooby Doo type sleuthing. It's also the first audio adventure that I've listened to and it's a great lead-in to the relationship between the Doctor and Lucie. Luckily there's no romance or sexual tension- just two friends who like to wind each other up. I'm quite sick of the female companion having to have a significant other (or at least, trying to make the Doctor one, *cough* Martha *cough*). Smith and McGann are perfectly cast for audio as they have distinctive characterful voices. My pet hate in audio plays is when everyone sounds the same.

Listening to this audio adventure helps fill in some of the blanks between Eighth Doctor in the TV Movie and Eighth Doctor in the webisodes and gives a good sense of McGann's Doctor. I'm not sure whether Time Lords have hormones or not but plenty of testosterone here. Can I also just say that he has an incredibly seductive voice?

These audios look a bit pricy but it's well worth popping to your local library for.

HASH(0x95366f3c) out of 5 stars A very fun episode 21 Aug. 2010
By Peter Ingemi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Max Warp brings the fun combination of a veritable "boys with toys" episode and combines it with the threat of interplanetary war.

The plot revolves around a show MAX WARP about the latest spaceship designs. As the Doctor is admiring the various ships and Lucie's eyes are rolling at the apparent overstock of testosterone a murder among the cast of the show and suspicion being thrown on an alien race who once waged war against them in blame.

Into the mix comes a prime minister with a "spinbot" to advise them of the peoples preference to as to war or peace. What will she decide and how will the Doctor manage to save the day.

This episode has a brisk pace and a healthy mix of comedy and a little bawdy humor. Just right for an early episode in the season.

It's is definitely a keeper
HASH(0x94e26078) out of 5 stars Doctor Who meets Top Gear Meets Agatha Christie 12 Dec. 2014
By Adam Graham, Superhero and Detective Fiction Author - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This second episode of the second of the Eighth Doctor Adventures is as described in the extras: Top Gear meets Agatha meets Doctor Who. That's certainly a winning combo as the Doctor and Lucy investigate the death of a pilot aboard an experimental aircraft that threatens to reopen a galactic war.

The episode makes for a fine hour of entertainment. Sheridan Smith is fantastic as Lucie Miller and the story features many cool and fun concepts such as the spinbots, political advisor robots without which no politician knows what to do.) Some of the political messaging did seem a tad heavy handed but that may be part of the parody of Top Gear. Regardless, it still is a quite enjoyable 50 minutes and a very solid radio drama.
