Doctor Who: To the Death

Doctor Who to the Death CD (Dr Who Big Finish)Doctor Who : To the Death

Good grief, a lot happens in this audio. If you've been following the adventures of the Doctor and Lucie Miller, you'll know it's been a bit of a rollercoaster of late. This is the final audio from the fourth season and is a cracking season finale. Not only do we have the Daleks (which I'm finding a bit overused of late if i'm honest), we have the far more interesting Meddling Monk & Tamsin as well as the Doctor's granddaughter Susan & great grandson Alex.

I can't say much more about the tale without revealing too much, but suffice to say, this is a bit of a turning point for the Eighth Doctor. If you've been at odds with how the Eighth Doctor could press the button to end the time war, then a pointer (as alluded to in the 2005 tv series), you start to feel with this adventure that you can see where he's heading. And it's quite a dark place.

Excellent stuff, highly enjoyable and well done to Paul McGann, Graeme Garden & Sheridan Smith for making this such a memorable season finale!
