VINE VOICEon 18 October 2004
Big Finish's 8th Doctor Who anthology plays heavily off of their 8th Doctor & Charley audio range, with Charley waking up on a mysterious airship and listening to the stories of the various other crew members, all of whom, like her, seem to have upset the Web of Time...
Of the sixteen stories the best concern the 3rd Doctor apparently causing someone's death, leaving him trapped as a ghost unable to communicate with his old friends; the 1st Doctor finding himself trapped into ruining the life of a schoolboy by his own future actions; and a tramp who's life is saved by the 8th Doctor questioning his motives.
Reasonable stories concern the 8th Doctor uncovering illegal genetic experiments on Gallifrey; the 7th Doctor unwittingly bringing someone back to life; a rag & bone man picking up alien technology discarded by the 1st Doctor at Totters Lane; the 6th Doctor facing execution for interfering in history; the 1st Doctor on trial for murder; the 4th Doctor getting involved with the outbreak of the Great Fire of London; the 5th Doctor both initiating and preventing the assassination of Margaret Thatcher; the 4th Doctor meeting mythical wolf people in Australia; and the 2nd Doctor confronting a magician who has summoned a demon to destroy the timelines the Doctor has woven around the Earth.
The only really poor stories feature the 3rd Doctor encountering the Master and various technobabble concerning time-loops; the 5th Doctor going undercover to trap a cheesy gangster aided by alien technology; a bland tale of the 2nd Doctor combating an Oil Baron in the Wild West; and a tedious tale of diplomats after a 6th Doctor adventure.
All in all this is a fairly downbeat collection, but the linking story of Charley helps immensely, and despite the inevitable odd misfire this is one of Big Finish's better collections.

This ebook edition is not a legal edition and should not be up for sale. Had a confirmation email from the real publisher, Big Finish, this morning. DO NOT BUY THIS ILLEGAL EBOOK VERSION!
