The latest release from Big Finish for August, in the main Doctor range. We are treated to Sylvester and Bonnie for this instalment. With the promise of going to watch an operatic performance by an alien race who have three heads and the ability to self harmonize, it will come as no great shock when instead of listening to some sweet aria's they materialise in the depth of a huge floating Warehouse in space. With a staff of cloned individuals performing the mother of all stock takes, the adventure see's the Doctor engaging with the inhabitants of the planet of which a small group of survivors, whom worship all thing Warehouse, try and make some sense of it all. Whilst Mel is left acting like the most under paid PC World Techguy out there fixing the floating Warehouses Computer system, for the rather dubious and mysterious Supervisor, why does he seem to have such dark side, what is his intentions.......
Well I must admit, the thing that stands out in this is the comment I heard made by the producer on last months release that with the 200 hundredth Main Range hitting the listeners, Big Finish wanted to do their own version of a mini reboot of the Main Range. This was to allow new users to engage without perhaps the vast need to have done 200 releases beforehand, that is for me what stands out for me. The whole feel of this is that you could slap this on and step into the Big Finish world without that committed engagement that most of the other releases have had. Did this deliver well it doesn't disappoint, for a Dr 7 release it is on par, the praise that instantly comes out from this is, it ticks all the boxes for a main release, and is a fabulous way to spend a couple of hours, in the company of the Who universe.
