An okay freebie including a good performance from Nicholas Briggs as Vilgreth and a solid performance from McCoy. It's a decent story, but the script has problems. Mainly, it's that given the nature of the Seventh Doctor, his unabashed credulity seems out of characters. Also, the end involved a lot of exposition and backstory told through a lengthy newsreel flashback, most of which wasn't really necessary.

Overall, there were some charming moments, and it's certainly is enjoyable as a freebie, but it could have been better with a stronger script.

Partially narrated by Sylvester, 'Last of the Titans', is both written and directed by Nick Briggs and is a remake of the Audio Visuals audio drama 'Vilgreth'. The story was originally published as the second half of an audio CD included with Doctor Who Magazine issue #300, and is now available as a free Big Finish download. Alistair Lock's score for the story is included on the Big Finish CD Music from the New Audio Adventures, Volume 2.

Played by Nick Briggs, Vilgreth is heavily modulated and quiet so it's very hard to make him out at times. Vilgreth is from Devon and is a Titanthrope whose DNA was cloned. McCoy’s performance is as good as anything he has done before.

Publisher Summary: "Once again, the TARDIS displays its preference for the grimy, the odious and the dangerous — and, finding himself lost and alone in the dark heart of a gigantic spacecraft, the Doctor has no way of knowing that a cosmic catastrophe is waiting to happen..."

I find this pretty inoffensive. My only real gripe is that Vilgreth is so hard to make out as times. As a story it's quite forgettable really but has a certain charm.

For it being a shorter, 30-minute piece, it's really well-acted and scripted. A simple story, but sometimes that works very well. Once again, Sylvester McCoy demonstrates that he's going to deliver a first-rate performance in just about anything he does, audio or otherwise.

Not bad for a solo adventure but it feels a bit slow at some places and fast in others but it's nice to hear the story told by narration from the Doctor's perspective.
