Big Finish brings the only Doctor Who musical to feature television Doctors to audio in the Ultimate Adventure with the Daleks and Cybermen together along with mercenaries and two new companions for the Doctor. The results are delightful.

To enjoy this, you have to understand and appreciate what it is. It's an audio adaptation of an over the top Doctor Who musical comedy and it's very well-executed. The songs are delightfully 80s and I absolutely love Nadine Cox's rendition of, "Business is Business." That truly ought to be released somewhere.

There are a few groaners in the course of the story, but some absolutely hilarious bits as well. My favorite is the disarming of the Dalek bomb. The story with both of the Doctors' greatest monsters featured is an absolute romp. The release is further strengthened by three mini-documentaries that help capture the history of the original play as well as the challenging process of transmitting a story from the stage to audio. The set was created with a lot of of love and care. If you're open to a silly but fun bit of 80s Who Nostalgia, this is a fun release to listen to.

You have to take this for what it is - a reproduction of a stage play that probably bordered on pantomime itself. It's fun and enjoyable. Colin put's in a brave performance, as do the companions, but they are battling a 'look Doctor' script. A good document of an anachronism in Doctor Who history.
