This is simply the very best Short Trips (Short Story) I've had the privilege to listen to. It's been a real challenge for me to cross back over to AudioBooks after being spoilt by Big Finish's collection of AudioDramas. I really appreciate the extra effort the production team has gone to here with the inclusion of music, sound effects and monster voices. It really adds to the atmosphere and to the delight as one finds themselves more and more immersed into the story. It's the difference between a great story simply read by a narrator versus a production like this. Where the narrator truly performs his role, he's fully present as the character, not just an actor reading a story. Add to that, all the extra protection details and you have a product that is light years apart from a traditional AudioBook. So although this maybe "just a short story" and "just an AudioBook" and not the audio Theatre that Big Finish is renowned for in its main catalogue, it still is of a standard we've all become so used to, when the Big Finish name is mentioned. This is a 10/10 Short Trip story. To have it supplied as an exclusive bonus, just for subscribers to the Main Collection of Dr. Who stories, is such a treat and greatly appreciated. As all of us subscribers know full well, this story would have sold extremely well had it been included in the standard Short Trips series (Ava. to the general public). I really do appreciate how generous it is of Big Finish to include this as a subscriber ONLY story. I certainly feel like I've received something special and appreciate the high value of work that's being included in this exclusive series. I feel handsomely rewarded for my loyalty. A superb piece of fiction. Outstanding acting. Fantastic effects. Gripping, entertaining and a wonderfully delicious experience!! Many thanks.
