5.0 out of 5 stars pennywhistle and Tardy boxes, 9 Dec. 2013

This review is from: Dark Eyes (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)
I've been a great fan of Paul McGann's eighth Doctor on audio going right back to his debut in 2001's `Storm Warning'. However when he was side-lined into his own single disc monthly releases I lost touch with this incarnation. Although financially focused on the monthly two disc and companion chronicles titles it was a definite target to somehow budget for the unique `Dark Eyes' box set and the distinctive vocal style of McGann. Having listened to it all this was absolutely the right decision as not only is Paul on top form but also new `companion' Molly O'Sullivan is instantly a memorable and refreshingly forthright Irish character.

I loved opening story `The Great War' due to its period setting and an initially dazed and confused Doctor. I appreciated the time travelling to 1972 and Second World War in second story `Fugitives' and very much enjoyed the alien world and inhabitants plus, initially, Daleks behaving in a very puzzling manor to the Doctor and Molly during third story `Tangled Web'. Personally I found fourth story `X and the Daleks' rather bewildering and somewhat muddled on a first listen but still great fun.

For me new Paul McGann Doctor Who was long overdue and I was delighted to buy a copy at a great reduced price from an Amazon seller. I understand that there are more `Dark Eyes' box sets planned for 2014 & 2015 and on the evidence of this first set this certainly looks like an exciting, imaginative and enjoyable new future for the eighth Doctor which I hope I'll be able to afford... but please lets have something other than Daleks in future!
