Big Finish: The Monthly Adventures

Will Arrowsmith is so bad you have to wonder why Big Finish let him be written and performed like that. It’s not like anyone was clamouring for Jeremy Fitzoliver 2.0. but that’s what they gave us.

My thoughts on this discussion having only heard Colditz is “Ugh, Klein comes back?”

Her first trilogy after Colditz is marvellous. She’s also good in UNIT: Dominion. Her second trilogy is less good.

Klein’s Story is a marvellous lore dump audio, fleshing out her character even more

I found that funny.

The peak of the Main Range will always be the Evelyn and Hex arc. Best Who content ever

We’re Doctor Who fans - easily 70% of our lives are spent complaining about this show <3

I loved Will and that trilogy tbh, Persuasion is my favorite I think

Do you need help? Is that your code? Is someone holding you hostage?

(Seriously, I love Delta and the Bannermen and even I can’t understand the decisions made around Will’s character).

Actually, I got so excited to see my team that I forgot I have a bunch of issues with this episode. I’ll elucidate in my review eventually, but it basically boils down to John Dorney is being slightly too smug in how clever he is and how much fun he’s having, and I am always somewhat disappointed that Rachel and Allison are a little decorative in this one because clearly Gilmore is John Dorney’s favourite.

But anyway, I do love this episode and I love Rachel and Ace interacting. They are so much fun and I wish so much we could have had more CM. <3

Yes I finished it last night, I enjoyed it very very much. The way it’s all about dealing with grief in the most painful of ways… Doctor Who at it’s best

Don’t forget the gorgeously badass speech from 7

That is the point, go as blind as you can. I did and it completly tore me apart.

So i have been focusing in listening to the adventures with 7th, Ace and Mel. It was a complete shock when i discovered that were gonna travel all together and i had to know what it was all about. I’m now in the last trio of stories and for the most part i’d say they haven’t any that interesting with. There’re good stories that i enjoy for the most part but the dinamic it isn’t all that new, the chamestry it’s definitely there but the writing doesn’t tag along. It took 6 audios to tackle the fact that this Doctor it’s diferent form the one Mel traveled with, that after she left he took a shift in how he looked at thing. It was satisfaying once they did it but it took to long.
