Four and a half star audio excellence,
This review is from: Wirrn Dawn (Doctor Who: The New Eighth Doctor Adventures) (Doctor Who: The Eighth Doctor Adventures) (Audio CD)
As the sleeve notes point out, audio gives a fantastic way to tell a big story with sound that is hard even with the kind of CGI we have available these days. This is another example a quality Big Finish product that is as good as it can be rather than merely good enough for the fans to buy.
The story is very much Aliens2 meets Dr. Who and the soundscape really does work, the Wirrn last seen in Ark in Space are fighting for territory with humanity, yet there was a time when they compromised.
Packed with fighting, space battles, sinister insect aliens and mini-cliff hanges this failed to get five stars only as the lunkhead soldiers were slightly more stereotypical than they could have been, and the resolving plot device was somewhat obvious.
Basically though a cracking tale!
