My review of the Big Finish Companion Chronicles adventure # 5.3 Staring Alex Lowe as Huxley and Katy Manning as BOTH Jo Grant and Iris Wildthyme are available here at Amazon.com and Here at Lunch.com

I haven’t done a Doctor who review in a while so I’m glad to get back to it.

As always you can pick this up at Mike’s comics. You can also listen to a trailer the adventure here.

On both the redesign and today’s Doctor Who comedy comic with Bugs Bunny as the 3rd Doctor and Wile E Coyote as the Master.

How can even this president keep me depressed when I have stuff like this to cheer me up?

One of the things that us old timers who have followed the series for decades love is to see the return of old foes, this episode we see old foes that we haven’t seen since the time of the 5th doctor (unless you follow the audios).

For most of the people seeing this episode, there is a sense of mystery, what is happening to the corpses? Why are people disappearing and what does this have to do with the drilling project going on?

For us old hands it is very familiar. Almost a repeat in may ways of a classic episode from the 3rd Doctor’s first season.

There is the aspect of separation Amy, the Doctor and Rory all on their own, that’s not bad, and the how will the people manage under pressure without the Doctor to keep them straight, that’s not bad either.

But it just never manages to raise itself beyond that point. You wait for a climax that seems to never come. The cliff hangers for part two are OK but it just didn’t excite me

Rating ***

Last episode: Amy’s Choice

Next episode: Cold Blood

the final chapter of the original 3rd Doctor adventure The Stalker of Norfolk at Rich’s Comic Blog.

If you didn’t get a chance to check out the story set in 1588 and don’t want to come in at the end the Title page is here. Simply go on through the 63 pages. The Archive page featuring 3-10 pages at a time is here.

The Next new adventure is called Outrage. Since he has now done the 3rd, 5th, and 8th Doctors we can assume that we will be seeing a different one(s). Anyone want to make book on which one(s)?
