And just to remind me why I started buying Big Finish stories in the first place!,
This review is from: Human Resources: Pt. 1 (Doctor Who) (Audio CD)
After the unbelievably poor stories of 2007's main Dr Who range it is a delight for me to say that this is an absolute stormer of a story! Well, so far...
The obstreporous Lucie has been nicely assimilated into the Doctor's world when she is unceremoniously jerked straight back out of it again. She finally gets to where she wasn't supposed to go and the whole thing speeds along like a runaway train.
The supporting cast are uniformly excellent, without the big names that marred previous BBC 7 audios, and it sounds excitingly cinematic. Oftentimes I could see vast images in my head that I haven't seen in the main Big Finish range for quite a while. The direction is concise and clipped, the sound effects approachable and the lack of telepathic moments is to be applauded.
Already my odds on favourite (along with the wonderful Mark Gatiss audio play 'Invaders From Mars') to be remade as a Tennant TV story - now THAT would be something to see - I can't say how overjoyed I am to find this gem among the rocks.
You see, Big Finish CAN get it right when they want to! Perhaps it was the BBC commission that made them try harder?
All I can do now is hope that part 2 lives up to expectations...!
