My review of the Doctor Who Big Finish adventure #33 Neverland staring Paul McGann as the 8th Doctor, India Fisher as Charley Pollard and Lalla Ward as Romana is available at Amazon.com here.

This was the first of three Charley “Resolution” episodes (the second being The Girl who Never Was and the final Blue forgotten planet). There would be a 17 episode gap between this one and the next 8th Doctor adventure, the big 50th episode Zagreus featuring Doctors 5-8 and a cameo by the 3rd doctor from beyond the grave.

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

My review of the Big Finish Adventure # 77 Other Lives staring Paul McGann as the 8th Doctor, India Fisher as Charley Pollard and Conrad Westmaas as C’rizz is available at Amazon.com here.

This was one of the last of the Big Finish range that I picked up, it also is a pure historical in that the only Aliens within the adventure are the Doctor and C’rizz

This and all other Doctor Who Audios are available a Mike’s Comics.

My review of the Doctor Who Big Finish adventure # 105 The Condemned, staring Colin Baker as the 6th Doctor and India Fisher as Charley Pollard is available at Amazon.com here.

This is the very first Big Finish audio I ever heard. 180 audios later it is still my favorite. I was very lucky to start out with this one as Eddie Robson has proved to be the best writer of Doctor Who audios that I’ve yet to hear.

My Review of the Big Finish adventure Blue Forgotten Planet # 126 featuring Colin Baker as the 6th doctor and India Fisher in her final adventure as Charley Pollard is available at Amazon.com here.

This marks the end of the Incredible 10 year continuous run of Charley Pollard as the companion of the doctor in new adventures. This is the longest run of any character or Actor in any of the various series. From Storm Warning

to The Girl who never was she was in every 8th doctor adventure. Once she was paired with Colin Baker in the Condemned, for two years with only a single exception (Assassin in the Twilight) she was the companion for every 6th doctor in the series until this one.

Ironically if you are a big finish regular you saw that Blue Forgotten Planet was actually scheduled for adventure # 114 or so. The title was up but no details were there. This was because Charley was meant to have 3 adventures with the 6th Doctor and that would be it, but the response was so great and popular that Blue Forgotten Planet disappeared from the schedule and Charley traveled on.

Charley is actually going to return in the first 8th doctor companion chronicles later this year Solitare so we haven’t seen the last of India or Charley, but it’s been a great run and some great fun.
