Doctor Who audio adventures are the best out in the whole world of who these days, the big finish team love to do brilliant and exciting stories that keep you hooked, even if the story has sad undertones. So we have had a load of brilliant adventures with the eighth doctor and Charlie Pollard, played brilliantly by India Fisher. But nearly all good things come to an end.
The cybermen are very much in the background in this story, but that does not mean this story isnt terrific. This story has very strong characterisation. The tight dialogue between the Doctor and Charlie is right on the nail for me. Paul is as excellent as ever. But i love the cyberplanner. A touch of the invasion, without being too much of a touch if you get what i mean. I love the cyubermen voices in this story too, somewhere between the new series and the tenth planet.
The elements all come together and gell to make the death of Charlie very moving and unexpected. The last scene with the doctor reading the note Charlie left for him is one of the best scenes in big finish who ever. This story definitely has class with plenty of fresh ideas and great acting. An enjoyable romp! Im glad to see that India hasnt finished quite yet though, for she is back in The Condemned, cant wait til thats out...
