5.0 out of 5 stars A Touching look at Mental Health, 7 Feb. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Takin' Over the Asylum is a brilliantly written, well performed and is just brilliant. Featuring the (then) up and coming David Tennant (Doctor Who) as Cambell, a manic depressive who has a taste for music and Ken Scott (Rebus) as Eddie who just wants to make it to the big time on Radio in Glasgow.

Each story features one of the patients in St. Jude's Hospital, while Eddie tries to maintain the Hospital Radio, each one of them has an ending that will make you think about Mental Health.

Over all, I must admit that this series is something that you should watch as you get brilliant performances and really touching stories as everyone admits to themselves that they too have problems that can't be hidden.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best thing that Big Finish have ever produced., 7 Feb. 2009
What If? It's an important question but when you ask it, What If I go down the left street than the right? You make your choice and then it's onto the next What If? But then again, in some strange reality, you go down the right street instead of the left one.

That's what this story is all about. What If the Doctor didn't become U.N.I.T.'s Scientific Supervisor? Well the answer lies in this story. The world is a different place and instead of the 1970's, The Doctor (played by David Warner) lands on the eve of the Hong Kong Handover.

It's a unique look at the world if The Doctor didn't save it during the seventies, where there is very little to no plastic(Spearhead from Space), There's a lake in the middle of London (Doctor Who and the Silurians) and The Master now works for the Communists.

If your a Classic Doctor Who fan, it's just fun to look at what's changed and references to other stories are just brilliant.

So If you have the chance to listen or buy this. Do it. You won't be disappointed.
