    Finally, the eight doctor really begins. As Dr Who officianados know, the eight doctor is a bit of an anomaly. He had one single episode in the early nineties to try and restart the series. It wasn't the restart people were looking for and so just the one episode. However, he did have a life on radio and through audio books like this one. This is the first official audio series featuring the eight doctor and this is the first episode.

    Pretty awesome intro to the next series of 8th Doctor adventures, this time featuring companion Lucie Miller, who pops up on the TARDIS as part of a witness protection program. The Time Lords not only make it impossible for the Doctor to return Lucie to her proper time and place, but make the TARDIS inoperable without her. But that's just the set-up for this year's arc.

This particular two-part story sends the Doctor down to a planet on the brink of geological disaster. But the citizens' distress calls have been answered by a seemingly benevolent group of aliens -- the Daleks. I had a little difficulty distinguishing between the voices of the two female characters featured in the plot (other than Lucie) and this led to some confusion, but it sorts itself out eventually when they're no longer in the same scenes together. Lucie makes a great foil for the Doctor -- they have good chemistry, based on mutual loathing. Of course, we know that eventually they'll come to depend on one another, but for now, part of the fun is watching the sparks fly.

    This is my first experience with Paul McGann as the Doctor and damn did it deliver, love Sheridan Smith as Lucie Miller too!

    Quite enjoyable. Paul McGann really is the 8th doctor so very much. He brought this production to life. The plot was enjoyable. Very much a DW story. Definitely kept me entertained while I was sewing some baby onesies.

    I'm going to cover part one and two all at once, since I listened them together. This was my first Big Finish audio book. I was pleasantly surprised by the production quality, as I'd always thought these were just someone reading the book out loud (like other audio books I'd tried). Ad far as the story itself goes, it was a typical Doctor Who style story. No real surprises and on par with the quality I'd expect.

    This is hard for me to review as I'm only just getting started on both the audio-books & the audio-dramas of the Eighth Doctor. Further this is not a self-contained story, but the first part of a larger arc. It's an interesting set up with a new companion with a mysterious past and lots of interesting characterization to play with. Certainly looking forward to the conclusion.

    Came into this hoping for something reasonably entertaining, a little Hayley Atwell, and the Doctor I remember from that gloriously awful movie. By the end I forgot Hayley Atwell was a primary character here, I was so engrossed in the story. reallllly looking forward to listening to part 2.

    This is a fun start to a series of the Eighth Doctor's adventures, which apparently aren't actually the immediate follow up to his introduction in the TV movie. It seems there are plenty of previous adventures for Eight from Big Finish, not to mention the Eighth Doctor Adventure novels, which I believe the audio materials ignore completely.

It seems there are plenty of previous adventures for Eight from Big Finish, not to mention the Eighth Doctor Adventure novels, which I believe the audio materials ignore completely. However, this is a good jumping on point as far as I can tell, beginning with the Doctor picking up a new companion in his TARDIS, and then crashing on a human colony world. Well, technically, the companion just sort of appears, and eventually it's revealed that the Time Lords have foisted her on Eight for reasons as yet unclear. It's an interesting mix of the Classic and modern series, as Time Lord interference was common for the older Doctors, while a companion who appears unexpectedly on the TARDIS has obvious parallels to Donna's first appearance. The resemblance is even clearer given that Lucie is, in many ways, an amalgamation of Rose and Donna. At least, that's how she felt like to me. I'm not entirely opposed to that, as it seems like she'll be a fun character, even if I'd rather just have Donna in spite of the obvious licensing impossibilities that prevented that back in 2006. The actual story is a nice intro, involving the Daleks and a human colony world an ambiguous time in the future. The colony world has been struck by an asteroid, though fortunately there are some survivors of the impact. Unfortunately for them, there are no ships left to escape on, since what exodus options were available were used by the rich and powerful, and currently the skies are dark and filled with deadly acid rain. The Doctor and his new companion wander into this situation, hoping to leave again, especially as Eight wants to just drop Lucie home. However, thanks to run ins with criminals and a conspiracy nut, things aren't quite so easy, and when it turns out the colony president has called on the Daleks to save the humans, Eight will have to do what he can to save everyone from a terrible mistake. Of course, there's a nice plot twist with a mad scientist at the end, and an okay if cliche cliffhanger to lead in to part two. This was a fun story, though it's hard to completely judge until I listen to Part 2, which I'll be sure to do so. I kinda like Lucie as a new companion even if so far she seems a bit derivative of RTD era companions, as the hook about her being in Time Lord Witness Protection has the potential to go in interesting directions. I'll definitely keep going with Eight's audio adventures, as Paul McGann is clearly having fun, though I kinda feel like between this and the first of the EDA novels, I liked the novels better (and I really need to get back and read some more of those).

    This is the first of the 8th Doctor Adventures and introduces Lucie Miller (Sheridan Smith) one of the greatest companions ever. I love the unusual way she appears too - she's witnessed something (but she can't remember what) and The Time Lords manifest her into the Doctor's Tardis as a sort of witness protection.

In this story they land on a post apocalyptic planet where the last survivors are desperate to leave but all the exodus ships have left filled with all the upper classes. The Daleks hear their distress call and offer their services.... The voice-cast on this is top notch. McGann/Sheridan Smith are superb together but the rest of the voice cast includes Anita Dobson, Kenneth Cranham and Haley Atwell (Marvel MCU's Agent Carter) and Nicholas Briggs doing the Daleks - What a line up! Loved it.

    So, my first Doctor Who audiobook. Didn't start off with a Doctor I was familiar with but I did start off with an enemy I was familiar with. The Daleks at one point call the Doctor a "terrorist" of the Daleks and I smiled when I heard that because obviously terrorist becomes predator later. Makes sense.

The Doctor has a companion show up in the TARDIS a la Donna Noble and the companion proceeds to grump at the Doctor a la Ian Chesterton for landing her on an alien planet that doesn't even have two suns. They promptly get separated and what proceeds is the uncovering of what exactly happened and what is currently happening and then Daleks get tossed into the mix. This is all a very standard Doctor Who formula. My favorite part about this is that there is an actual tin foil hat guy. Also, dramatized audiobooks are bomb diggity. What will the Doctor do next? How will he solve the very large Dalek shaped problem?

This story with the 8th doctor (Paul McGann) introduces a new companion named Lucy (who sounds remarkably like Jodie Whitaker) in a clever story about a planet that is on the verge of destruction when the Daleks show up and offer to save them.

However this story is well put together. I was engaged the entire time and it keeps you guessing, Paul McGann proves to be a great doctor who was robbed of more screen time. You'd think in this day and age, someone would have proposed a spin off limited series that shows his adventures leading up to the Time War. See you in Part 2!

    After a friend recommending it for a while, I'm finally starting Doctor Who Audio! While there wasn't much of the Time Lords in this one, it was still fun to see a little bit of how they complicated the Doctor's life before the Time War. Lucie is the best, most ungrateful witness in protection, and I am enjoying the 8th Doctor's personality. This is what I've been missing in Doctor Who television recently. Looking forward to more audio. After a friend recommending it for a while, I'm finally starting Doctor Who Audio!

    This one was really good! It can be interesting seeing (or in this case, hearing) The Doctor try to convince people unfamiliar with the Daleks that they are evil. The Doctor even says he wishes that even just one Dalek could show pity, which is strange given the hindsight of episodes from the show's revival like "Dalek" and "The Witch's Familiar."

    I listened to this series with Lucie Miller before listening to Eight's adventures with Charley, and I hate to say it...but this series was so good it made McGann's original run as Eight worse. That said, Blood of the Daleks is an excellent first story in an excellent run of stories. I absolutely recommend it.

    My daughter, an avid Doctor Who fan, introduced me to the audio presentations by Big Finish Productions. These are full cast productions that tell a story entirely as dialogue. Paul McGann does a great job as the (usually overlooked) Eighth Doctor.

    I've often wanted to jump in to the Big Finish audio adventures, but I've often not known where to start. Thanks to the direction of a few friends, I settled on starting with some 8th Doctor adventures, and was turned on to his first story with Sheridan Smith, "The Blood of the Daleks" as a good place to start. I've not yet seen the TV movie with McGann, (although I have seen clips from it and of course there's Night of the Doctor) but I've really wanted to familarize myself with his stories so I've often wanted to jump in to the Big Finish audio adventures, but I've often not known where to start. Thanks to the direction of a few friends, I settled on starting with some 8th Doctor adventures, and was turned on to his first story with Sheridan Smith, "The Blood of the Daleks" as a good place to start. I've not yet seen the TV movie with McGann, (although I have seen clips from it and of course there's Night of the Doctor) but I've really wanted to familarize myself with his stories so this seemed as good a jumping on point as any. This story wastes no time getting on its feet and moving with a rousing opening filled with an unearthly screech and rising tones insisting the urgency of the situation as Lucie Miller (voiced by Sheridan Smith) is deposited much like Donna Noble aboard the Tardis in mid-flight without the consent of the Doctor. For someone who is entirely unused to audio adventures at this point, I thought the beginning was a little bit jarring. There's no narration - no setting the scene for the listening audience as I had expected going into it. Instead, you figure out what's going on via the dialogue between the characters as the story progresses. I'll give it props though, it was engaging straight away from the start. Immediately, Lucie and 8 begin butting heads a bit, which definitely did remind me of 10 and Donna in some ways - although Lucie is considerably less boisterous than Donna. I liked though how 8 immediately made it a priority to figure out how she ended up in his Tardis though. Clearly he doesn't mess around. I think it's an interesting dynamic this one: to have a companion who wants to see the universe, yet ends up with the Doctor because of things outside of her own control and that she doesn't actually remember. And despite their differences and their tendency to butt heads, 8 and Lucie can't exactly just leave the other one behind either. It's so interesting to listen to worlds being developed, rather than see them unfold visually on the screen. Normally in Who on the television we'd have large set pieces to visually draw us in and make us want to finish out the episode. As that isn't possible here, the characters are used to describe surroundings, and lots of exposition on the planet is done quite quickly, exposing listeners to the themes and issues troubling Red Rocket Rising long before the 8th Doctor's arrival. Red Rocket Rising is in the midst of a nuclear winter. The Exodus ships have long since departed, and hope left for those stuck behind seems lost when a communications system suddenly receives a message from a ship outside the planet, claiming to want to help. "People of Red Rocket Rising, my fellow citizens. Our long night is over. I've been contacted by a benevolent people. They too have known great trials, but they have overcome them and made it their mission to help others do the same. They have offered us refuge, and passage to the nearest human worlds. They have the resources, and the patience and compassion, to evacuate every one of us. My fellow citizens, my friends, rescue is at hand!" The initial message from the Daleks was quite unsettling. As long time fans, of course we know what trouble is about to ensure - but for the people of this planet, they are a sign of hope. They all initially believe that the Daleks must want to help. Of course, we all know how that works out. I found it interesting that they would start a new companion off with such a heavy story. Lucie has just met the Doctor, and suddenly she's flung into a an all-out war between humans, daleks, and a mutated form of the Daleks as well. It was doubly interesting to me that this story could well have turned in to another variation on a Dalek origin story had things ended up a bit differently. The performances in the audio were stunning. I loved that it was like listening to a play. I also thought the audio in general and the music incorporated was quite well done. Paul McGann's 8th Doctor certainly is interesting. I'm excited to be able to say that I've finally begun to get acquainted with him, and I'd like to see where his and Lucie's story goes for the remainder of their stories together. It just might take me awhile to get there considering the cost of the audios.

In this respect, there isn't much to make it stand above other dalek tales, although it has be one of the few times that the humans being attacked come across as such complete eejits that you can't help but feel they sort of deserve it. It's more interesting, perhaps, in the context of it being a fresh start for the series. There are clear signs, for instance, of the reborn TV show (most likely just the Eccleston season, given the release date) having influenced its writing. As an obvious example, the daleks themselves appear to be the new series sort. There's a plot arc being set up here, as well (although, to be fair, it's hardly the first time Big Finish have done that). The fact that this new audio series has individual 60-minute episodes instead of 4-part 120-minute stories also gives more a "new series" feel, although it's probably just because it was written for radio broadcast and that's the slot the BBC gave it. Either way, it's a big advantage, avoiding the tedious sting/theme/reprise that you have to have half way through every disc on the main series. (Sadly, I believe this was abandoned in later 8th Doc seasons. Shame on them). Crucially, perhaps, we have the new companion. She shows a lot of promise in this, although, at this stage, it's promise that has yet to be fulfilled. She's kind of a cross between Rose and Tegan, which does work, but only as the basis for something more - which remains to be seen. 4 stars for being well made and for showing some good promise for the future, including the start of a potentially interesting plot arc. On it's own... well, you know, it has daleks...

    I've been bouncing around the Big Finish lines for a while, listening to whatever takes my fancy. Blood of the Daleks is a two-part serial featuring the Eighth Doctor and his new companion, Lucie Miller. I debated on listening to the whole thing through, then giving my thoughts, but decided that, in true episodic fashion, I'd do a review for each part separately.

Blood of the Daleks is a two-part serial featuring the Eighth Doctor and his new companion, Lucie Miller. I debated on listening to the whole thing through, then giving my thoughts, but decided that, in true episodic fashion, I'd do a review for each part separately. The story starts out with promise: The TARDIS lands on Red Rocket Rising, a desolate planet whose few human survivors are scattered, waiting either for rescue or destruction. Rescue does come, but it's in a dubious form, at best. This story suffers from one major flaw: The Daleks simply aren't that frightening. Perhaps I would feel differently, had I grown up watching Who. As it is, I've only found them really effective in one serial, The Dalek Invasion of Earth, in which London has become a ghost town because of Dalek occupation. Blood of the Daleks follows a familiar pattern: 1. The Daleks are seen as either benevolent, useful, or misguided by humanity 2. The Doctor tries to convince humanity that Daleks are really out to exterminate the population, which no one believes until 3. The Daleks set out doing just that, thus requiring the Doctor to thwart the Dalek threat once again. That being said, there is a lot to recommend this audio. All of the performers do an excellent job. Lucie Miller isn't as likable as Charley Pollard, but she comes with an interesting mystery and irritates the Doctor to no end, which is fun. All of the other characters are well-drawn, and all have their own agendas, especially the escaped convict Asha, whose plans, when revealed, kick the story up a notch from "seen/heard it before" to "this could be interesting, if done right." 3/5 stars for solid characterization and an overall promising start to the Eight/Lucie line.
