Review by Christian Basel
First off, very happy to be joining Doctor Squee on a new adventure not only talking Doctor WHO on his podcast, Gallifrey Stands Podcast, but enjoying the new adventures of the Doctor in Big Finish audios. This is not my first time listening and enjoying the extended life spans of all the Big Finish audios, but now, you get to hear my take on them. Having said that, here’s my first go with the Fifth Doctor’s audio, ‘Serpent in the Silver Mask’.
Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)
As this is my first review of an ‘early adventure’; I’ll talk briefly about this range.
It’s been really good to see classic doctors revived and companions brought back in the ‘early adventures’. There were some really nice companion chronicles, but Big Finish doing full cast audio adventures have slightly ruined me for narration when we can hear a story with a full cast acting it out. These early adventures are mostly acted out with a full cast, with occasional narration to set the scene. The companions like Frazer Hines as the Second Doctor and William Russell as the First do such a good job you feel like they are there and I’m really glad they made the brave decision to do early Doctors replacing the actors we miss so much.
