So it may seem like this is not an ideal jumping on point for casual listeners. But this doesnt reference the previous appearance by the viryans at all, and since charley's secrets are not not resolved, thanks to the events of the story, you actually could be able to get into this one if you haven't heard the earlier ones.
over the course of four episodes which each run for roughly half an hour, the doctor's quest to find a cure for an affliction that charley has fallen prey to leads him to a space station many years before her time. there dwells a humanoid creature with a very unique ability. the viryans are due to arrive there. But then along come the daleks. On the trail of someone.
And when that someone meets charley, she falls into deadly danger...
this is the equivalent of a page turner of a book, because throughout it you will constantly be desperate to find what happens next. the small cast has some great character moments. we meet a new type of dalek, whose voice takes a little getting used to but who develops into an interesting character. and india fisher does some excellent work playing charley when she's not quite herself.
The last ten minutes of episode are quite unforgettable, as both the doctor and the daleks get the chance to gloat and then find things going the other way. and a desperate dilemma leads the tardis crew into a memorable cliffhanger.
And that's not the only cliffhanger. keep listening right to the end of the disc...
this feels like the first part of a bigger story, and it could possibly do with shaving off a few minutes of running time here and there, but it's a very absorbing listen and it will make you eager to find out what happens next. which you will in the forthcoming story Paper Cuts (Doctor Who) .
There are fourteen minutes worth of interviews with cast and crew at the end of part two.
and part four has after it the fifth episode of the three companions, a story being told monthly over the ongoing series of releases.
this involves polly and the brigadier telling each other of their time with the doctor. pollys' story finished in part four and now the brigadier's begins. thus as it's a new beginning casual listeners should have no trouble with getting into it. and it's a good episode, as he tells of the time he and the doctor visited waterloo station. or so it seemed to be. there were some major differences about the place...
a fantastically imaginative episode that conjures up some great imagery it's a very entertaining listen. those who have heard parts one to four might have an inkling of what will happen next, but even so it's good enough to make you eager to find out.
Unfortunately all good things must come to an end. The pairing of Charlie Pollard and the Sixth Doctor has been excellent, providing some of the high points of the recent Big Finish output. The frisson resulting from Charlie's inability to tell Six the truth about her background, and Six's slight distrust of her has provided one of the best Doctor/companion relationships in the series. However, though it is what has made the relationship great, it has also put a time limit on the pairing, and it is now sadly time for things to come to head. This is the first of a three story arc that will resolve the situation, and left me absolutely desperate to listen to the next story, Paper Cuts. This story is self contained enough to be listened to in isolation, but you will get a lot more from it if you've listened to some of the previous Six/Charlie or even Eight/Charlie adventures first.
This release also contains the fifth part of `The Three Companions', a twelve part story spread across a years' worth of Big Finish releases, featuring Polly, The Brigadier and Thomas Brewster. This is turning into an intriguing story, and again I eagerly await the next instalment.
