By Victor HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 8 Oct. 2013
Format: Audio CD
First released in 2007, this is the fourth 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.

After two really good episodes in `Max Warp' and `Brave New Town', this confused mess is somewhat of a let down. The Doctor and Lucie arrive on a strange blue world, by the Doctor's design for a change. They find themselves in some sort of monastery which is under siege by someone or other, and there are crocodiles roaming around fighting some ancient war at the behest of an ancient artefact known as the Skull of Sobek.

It's exactly as I described it, a confused mess. The whole story of the battling crocodiles and the people laying siege to the monastery is hard to follow - in fact one of the crocodile adversaries (I forget the character's names, they made so little impression) seems to appear in the story talking to the Doctor, then has a big entrance scene in which he arrives on the planet. Then there is the Abbot and Abbess of the monastery (played by Art Malik and Barbara Flynn who do their best but are largely wasted in go nowhere parts that are a criminal underuse of these two great actors talents) who seem to have a lot to do with proceedings but in the end don't. There are silly escapes and sillier fights and the whole thing becomes sillier and more confusing by the minute.

I didn't really enjoy it, which is a shame as it is a bit of a disservice to the actors involved, who really try to resuscitate the turkey. Full marks to the actors but the script is awful and directionless. 2 stars.

Although this is of the same high production, acting and probably writing as the rest of these great Big Finish productions, I got to the end of this and wasn't convinced that the Doctor and Lucie were doing more than going through the motions. I think there was a very good ending buried in here but it got lost on the way to the final product.

Worth a listen, but not the best in the series by a long way.

By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 29 April 2008
Format: Audio CD
The latest audio adventure for paul mcgann's doctor who and his companion feisty northern girl lucie miller.

As usual:

this is a one part story complete in forty five minutes [approx]

The remainder of the disc contains fifteen minutes of interviews with cast and crew, and also a trailer for the next in this season of audios

There's no ongoing story in this season so this is something you can listen to without having heard the previous ones in the season

and the two leads are great and have a wonderful chemistry together and some great dialogue

story wise this is about a monastery on a strange alien world which is under siege from several groups for various reasons, not least one old soldier who has a score to settle. the doctor and lucie are caught in the crossfire and lucie has to face a few of her darkest fears. great material for actress sheridan smith who plays lucie, this, and she does it superbly.

Story wise though there's a bit much to take in here and whilst it's good it's not quite as good as the first three in the season, as you may need to listen to it more than once to take everything in. But the monsters are good and it's well written, so it's still a pretty good listen
