First in a new series of audio adventures for the eighth doctor who. set sometime after the ones featuring him and companion charley pollard. These are, like the current tv show, all forty five minute long episodes, one per disc. some are complete stories. and some are two parters. The companion in these is feisty northern girl lucie miller, played by actress sheridan smith. Lucie is an instantly appealing character and she and paul mcgann have a superb chemistry together which makes their scenes a delight to listen to.
There is an ongoing story throughout this series of audios which involves lucie and the reason she ended up in the tardis.
This story starts at blistering pace, with lucie and the doctor meeting and the tardis then landing on a new world all in the space of a few minutes. the planet has been devastated by a disaster, but they've had an offer of help. from a certain alien race....
A hugely entertaining audio, that moves at great pace, tells a very good and compelling story, and has some great performances from all the cast. It ends on a cliffhanger that leads into the second disc. And the disc concludes with ten to fifteen minutes worth of interviews with the cast, which are fun to listen to.
