    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.

As with all Big Finish audios, the story is well written, well produced and well acted. They are always a great car listen. Any kind of trip I like to put one of these in. If you are a Dr who fan, I recommend the entire catalog and if you want to know how Dr 8 lived, here is where you start.

    The Doctor vs. the Daleks! What could be better. This is classic Doctor Who stuff. It's a crime that Paul McGann only got the one revival TV-movie to portray the iconic character because if these audio adventures are any indication he would have been one of the best.

    Quite enjoyable. The conclusion to a very well done story. 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.

    Good resolution to this two-parter, introducing the Doctor's newest companion, Lucie Miller, and creating an interesting premise for the Daleks. Good resolution to this two-parter, introducing the Doctor's newest companion, Lucie Miller, and creating an interesting premise for the Daleks.

    Following directly on from part one, we learn that Martez isn't dead and has transferred his consciousness into the body of his assistant Asha Gryvern (Hayley Atwell) - Not only was he experimenting first with corpses and then live human subjects, but also a crashed Dalek ship and its deceased crew. He's created a new hybrid race of Daleks and summoned the Dalek rescue vessel to marvel at his ingenuity and we presume embrace their new brothers.

He's created a new hybrid race of Daleks and summoned the Dalek rescue vessel to marvel at his ingenuity and we presume embrace their new brothers. However The Daleks, like the Nazis are all about racial purity and see this new race as an abomination. So begins a Dalek civil war with the Doctor and companion Lucie Miller (Sheridan Smith) caught in the crossfire! There's very little I can criticise. Sheridan Smith is an amazing companion, McGann is on top form and the rest of the cast are fantastic (Anita Dobson, Kenneth Cranham, Hayley Atwell) Nicholas Briggs does the Daleks and while he's always awesome I have to give extra credit to this one because there are two types of Dalek and we only have his voice talent to tell them apart and he manages to pull it off. Great story as well. Dalek civil war! This two parter gives a real treat for Who fans - It's got all the classic Who elements and top notch production values. Recommended.

    "So...what you saying? You want me to stay with ya?" "I wouldn't go that far. But, maybe I could drop you off somewhere else. Somewhere more-" "Nah, you're alright, mate." This was an entertaining part 2. Also, I'm a huge fan of the outro music. Like, wow. This was a completely satisfactory ending, especially for how typical the story was. There was some strain of Bad Wolf/Parting of Ways in there on top of Genesis of the Daleks. And I'm curious to know where the Doctor's adventures with Lucy Mille "So...what you saying?

    Not quite an audiobook but still entertaining. This is the second of two parts. Doctor Who fans will recognize Paul McGann and Nicholas Briggs. Marvel fans should appreciate Hayley Atwell’s performance. This is the conclusion of a solid story involving The Doctor and some of his most well known enemies.

    Part 2! So it's basically like a remake of Genesis of the Daleks but in audio form with the 8th doctor. Not bad, not as good as the first part that had a lot of great build up, and has a great villain. But a fairly run of the mill dalek story. Part 2!

    Daleks are always a win. I enjoyed the second part of this story. I definitely like the 8th Doctor at this point, even if he is a little rude sometimes.

The Doctor allies himself temporarily with the true Daleks in order to destroy Martez's Daleks, but then works with Tom Cardwell to eliminate both Dalek groups. The Daleks reveal that they caused the asteroid strike on Red Rocket Rising, in a failed attempt to eliminate Martez's creations; they also destroyed the exodus ships carrying refugees from the disaster. Martez's Daleks, which are being birthed at a rapid rate, initially have an advantage over the true Daleks, who are weakened from another conflict. The Doctor eventually convinces Martez that a Dalek-dominated world will know only hatred, war and death. Martez, whose stolen body is breaking down, halts the birthing process; in return, his creations kill him. Eventually, the two groups of Daleks (aided by Cardwell's resistance) destroy each other. The humans are left to pick up the pieces, and Klint announces that a new offer of rescue has been received from the inhabitants of a planet whose name begins "Tel-". Lucie considers staying with the survivors on Red Rocket Rising, but the Doctor discovers that the Time Lords will not let him leave the planet without her. And elsewhere, a woman calling herself the Headhunter accepts a commission from one Mr. Hulbert, promising him that she will find Lucie Miller anywhere in space and time...

    a rather good double feature introducing new companion Lucie and bringing her and the Doctor to a planet under threat from natural disaster but seeking help from, of all people, the Daleks. There are some neat developments of the history and ideology of the Daleks: riffs on two of the best Dalek stories (Power and Genesis), and then the question of how the Daleks would react to a secondary creation. The politics of the human colony is well thought out too.[return][return]I was not so sure about a rather good double feature introducing new companion Lucie and bringing her and the Doctor to a planet under threat from natural disaster but seeking help from, of all people, the Daleks.

This is not a criticism of Sheridan Smith's portrayal - as a northern lass reacting to the Eighth Doctor's airs, she is rather good and builds up a memorable presence very quickly. But her back story is much less credible: snatched from (where?) by the Time Lords, and then the Doctor wilfully failing to interrogate her fully. This story came out at the same time as The Runaway Bride, which also had a companion mysteriously manifesting in the Tardis, but dealt with that rather better, I thought.[return][return]Good stuff from Anita Dobson as the civilian leader and Hayley Attwell (who was the Duchess's husband's lover in The Duchess); also Kenneth Cranham was new to me, and I thought must be Bill Oddie at first, though a glance at the credits put me right.

    This was the first Big Finish that I actually purchased a few years back and it made enough of an impression that I'm now a fan with about 170 or so. In some respects, it's kind of your average Dalek story with hints of stories like Destiny of the Daleks to it, but lets face it, by this point a completely original Dalek story is pretty much out of the question. But, it has a solid story to it with some interesting twists and a dark, post-apocalyptic setting.

There are some really good characters in this story, especially the tin-foil-hatter, Tom Cardwell. And Lucy comes out of the gate swinging in this story. She shines from the word go. The casual way that she just burns the normally unflappable 8th Doctor is great. There's some top notch banter between the two. They have instant chemistry. Maybe its just nostalgia, but I love this story.

I have loved meeting Eight, and his resigned but inspirational way of being. I love Lucy's moxy, and her mouth. Her mouth may be the best thing on the planet. Even though I know the episodes are roughly the same length as tv episodes, from single one hours to double-extended two hours, somehow they end up feeling like bite-size, leaving me wanting just a little more from every single one.

    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.

    It's a shame we got to see so little of Paul McGann as the Doctor. He's really, really good. Luckily, we have the 8th Doctor's adventures courtesy of Big Finish, and this is a good introduction if you've not delved into them yet. Lucie Miller appears suddenly in the TARDIS, sent by the Time Lords as a sort of witness protection program. And her first adventure takes her to the planet Red Rocket Rising, a dying world that sees sudden hope when the Daleks offer to help.

    The Daleks have always been a symbol for the Nazi ideal of genetic superiority, and this story DID NOT DISAPPOINT!! Plot devices include: planet-destroying asteroids, crooked politicians, Daleks, and a would-be Davros. Yes!!! Davros is apparently someone's hero!!! Who knew? Of course, this means war. :-D Daleks are the supreme beings after all. THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE (supreme race in the universe). Lucy Miller is still aggravating, but is less so. Perhaps she is growing on me. Originally "read" on The Daleks have always been a symbol for the Nazi ideal of genetic superiority, and this story DID NOT DISAPPOINT!!

    I enjoyed part 2 as well as the first part. Lucie continues to be amusing and it's always good when daleks fight each other and want to be the superior race. I'm not sure why I only gave this 4 stars instead of 5 the first time through. I think I must just have been a bit bored of young modern companions. But listening again I really liked this story.

    6/10 Verdict: Recommended A lot of my points from my review of the first part are carried over. The whole 'Dalek civil war' storyline is pretty played out by this point, so I didn't get anything from the main storyline. Other than Cardwell, none of the secondary characters appealed, and even the leading characters have the same flaws from the first part, if slightly lessened. 6/10 Verdict: Recommended A lot of my points from my review of the first part are carried over.

Quotes like, He named a random dalek Fred, and tried to ask how his suicide mission made him feel? “So you meant to kill us all? That’s good that’s good. Cause I’d Hate think that you done something so monumentally brainless, by accident.” No sign of Fred. What, Fred? He must have gone to join his friends up there.

    The original Daleks get into a big smack down with the human Daleks. While that's a lot of fun, it felt a bit drawn out. Also, the bickering between Lucie and the Doctor did get on my nerves a bit. Still, a very solid Dalek story. The original Daleks get into a big smack down with the human Daleks.
