Poor Paul McGann. Only the one mediocre tv movie though he made an excellent Doctor and deserved a lot more. I had been hearing good things about these audios and while I am a huge Doctor Who fan I had only recently decided to take the plunge and try the audio releases originally thinking they wouldn't be as good as the tv show. Turned out they are every bit as good as this, the 8th Doctor's first audio appearance is a good debut and restart for the character with McGann proving to be an excellent Doctor. The drama is set in 1930 aboard an airship making it's first flight and there are 2 stowaways. An Edwardian woman posing as a steward who ends up becoming The Doctor's latest companion and The Doctor. There is also a mysterious passenger and sightings of monsters as a violent storm approaches. India Fisher turns out to be a pretty good companion and it would be nice to see both her and the 8th Doctor turn up on tv alongside Matt Smith's Doctor for a team up and the rest of the cast which includes Blake's 7 star Gareth Thomas is good too. It's a good start for the 8th Doctor who deserved a proper tv series and this is the closest we will probably get to one. These are the stories I feel the BBC should have made after the tv movie flopped in America but did well in the ratings in the UK.

Back cover blurb:
October, 1930. His Majesty's Airship, the R101, sets off on her maiden voyage to the farthest-flung reaches of the British Empire, carrying the brightest lights of the Imperial fleet as well as the hopes and dreams of a breathless nation.
Not to mention a ruthless spy with a top-secret mission, a mysterious passenger who appears nowhere on the crew list, a would-be adventuress destined for the Singapore Hilton... and a Time Lord from the planet Gallifrey.
There's a storm coming. There's something unspeakable, something with wings, crawling across the stern. Thousands of feet high in the blackening sky, the crew of the R101 brace themselves. When the storm breaks, their lives won't be all that's at stake...
The future of the galaxy will be hanging by a thread.

Notable for being the audio story that introduced long-serving companion, 'Edwardian adventuress' Charley Pollard; this is a cracking story with strong performances from Paul McGann (The Eighth Doctor), India Fisher (Charley) and Gareth Thomas (Lord Tamworth). The 'Vortisaurs' could make superb television monsters in the right hands, and the Time Loop idea, although not a new one, is handled well by director Gary Russell. Good story, competitive price on here; essential listening if you want to make sense of any future Eighth Doctor audios.

I am an avid Who fan that, for a long while now, has been sceptical of getting one of these Audio Dramas, fearing they would try and do something wrong with the classic Who formula. However, i took the plunge with Storm Warning. If i didn't like it, at least i could say i'd tried the Audio path.
I'll skip straight to the point: this was brilliant. The opening sequence in the TARDIS with Paul McGann immediately cleared the clouds on whether i would take to the purely audio situation and when the story really gets going i was hooked. McGann is excellent - bringing a new Doctor to light despite only one TV movie of screen time. He is instantly Who with new witticisms and a new enthusiasm for the role. The plot of the story itself - which i knew nothing of, discovering the hard way that blurbs ruin plot twists all too often. Don't worry - not on this CD. Everything that happens takes your breath away and the imagination involved is spectacular. This is a real treat. As is the voice cast. The new companion fits it like a glove, voiced enthusiastically by India Fisher, and the guest voice is a dream. Gareth Thomas, of Blake's 7, finally gets to be in Doctor Who and he is brilliant. Exclamation mark. I cannot recommend this one higher. Its a great place to start if you're unsure either of the Eight Doctor or of audio dramas in general.
Additional: the audio allows the imagination to create all manner of things to make it just that little more personal. Eg - just what does a Vortesaur look like? Its up to you.
I only give this four stars because its the first one i've ever attempted. Perhaps the others are better!

This is the sixteenth release from Big Finish in their range of full cast audio adventures starring classic Doctor Whos. It stars Paul McGann as Eight and India Fisher as Charlie Pollard. There are four 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 notes from the author.

This was a really welcome development in the Big Finish range for me, introducing us to the Doctor who never was, and showing just what great things might have happened had the TV execs been a bit more trusting. Coming just over a year since their first release, Big Finish already had a strong record of delivering interesting stories for old doctors, and new takes on old villains. But here they had the opportunity to do something really special. With almost nothing to go on from his all too brief TV movie appearance, Big Finish and McGann were faced with the task of creating a characterisation almost totally from scratch. And wow! What a job they did. McGann grabs the opportunity with both hands, giving us a character that has elements of past Doctors but with his own stamp of youthful enthusiasm and a sense of fun and wonder at the universe. It's thoroughly entertaining.

After a brief teaser that introduces us nicely to the character of Eight, he finds himself roaming around the airship R101, seemingly unerringly drawn towards trouble in the form of a fake steward and a passenger who is rather special indeed.
