Series 1, sets up an incredibly exciting new series. It’s a continuation of the “Mission of Viyrans” story arc, which begins in the Main Range. It covers multiple episodes and Doctors.

I like listening to multistory Story Arcs. It can be a really enjoyable way to listen to BigFinish. As a newcomer, the Main Range can be really daunting. It’s so huge isn’t it. How to approach it is a natural question. Obviously, buying their subscriptions is one way (the way I prefer, mainly because I want to eventually buy the whole range). But if your looking just for a selection or a logical way to buy the stories, I’d suggest 2 ways. The 1st is to look here on TimeScales and buy the highest rated episodes first. Alternatively or in combination, do a little research or use BigFinish’s built in search engine. It’ll tell you “some” of the Story Arcs and which stories belong to which.

This series is a continuation of the Mission to Viyrans Story Arc.
Look, I agree at times this series can seem a tad disjointed, nevertheless it’s one of the most exciting Boxsets I’ve heard. A real sci-fi adventure like the ilks of Vienna. Series 2 starts out with a loud bang & a roar! I loved it. I immediately wanted more and unlike series 1, which crossed multiple settings, this season is a set of continuous progressive stories set on Earth.

It’s an exciting action story. A real roller-coaster. I think it’s heaps of fun and don’t really understand or relate to the generally average ratings. Don’t be put off by a rating of 6/10. That’s actually a very common rating and given its coming from devoted Doctor Who fans, suggests they did enjoy the story. But for them, it just didn’t scream “amazing”. But you can’t appeal to everyone all of the time and many of Nicholas Briggs series have been award winning and some of the most popular titles at BigFinish. For example: War Doctor, Dalek Empire, The Prisoner, Dark Eyes, etc.

As far as I’m concerned it’s a brilliant boxset. I highly recommend it.

It’s brilliant this serial. And as the other reviewers have said, Terrance Dicks writes a masterpiece of a script.

For any long term fans of Classic Who your just going love this. It’s fun, wiry, witty, clever and very exciting. I don’t think it’s dated that badly at all. In fact, I’ve been pleasantly surprised how good the 5th Doctor era actually is. The BBC was still investing in the show and the fifth Doctor really grows on you - in my experience that’s thanks in great part to BigFinish.

Anyhow if your looking for something special and that’s exactly what you get when two or more Doctors appear in any story, let alone The Master, Rassilon AND The Time Lords; and then throw in some of all time greatest companions: Sarah Jane, K9, Tegan, Turlough and the Brigadier - how could it be anything but!

Personally, I loved this adventure. I was incredibly impressed with BigFinish’s first ever Monthly Title. It really did exceed my expectations. It was wonderful having 3 Doctors together. I was enthralled by this mystery and enjoyed the clever time ideas explored within. The antagonist was original and I felt excited and enthralled right the way through.

The 1st -100 Monthly Main Range Titles are now only $2.99 each to download. That’s incredible for a 2 Hr full-cast production. I’ve rarely, if ever, been disappointed with any of them and I am looking fwd to subscribing to this range, as they’re even cheaper this way. I really am surprised at the quality given how early these were produced in BigFinish’s history. A number even went on to form the basis of stories for the 2005 relaunch of Dr. Who.

If your a budget conscious person you can’t go wrong with beginning your exploration of BigFinish with the 1st 100 Monthly Titles. Other great and affordable ranges incl. Dalek Empire or Gallifrey series.

John Dorney delivers once more with this fantastic romp!

A wonderful take on the traditional murder mystery, nothing is what it seems.
The characters jump off the page, the sound design is magnificent.

It’s a brilliant tale with plenty of replay value.

Seriously, I think the Fouth Doctor Series has gone from strength to strength.
Don’t miss out on this fantastic boxset, if you enjoy the fourth Doctor you’ll love this volume.
Bring on volume two :)
