Review: Doctor Who – Tartarus

Review by Michael Goleniewski


Tartarus is an unusual Main Range release in that it mixes two different casts together i.e a Doctor Who TARDIS team and the cast of one of Big Finish’s original releases, Cicero. Taking place in ancient Rome, Cicero centers around the tales of the real-life orator, lawyer, statesman, and philosopher who was a prominent player in the latter days of the Roman republic and the early days of the Roman empire. It’s a set that this reviewer has yet to hear at the time of writing but have heard fantastic things about and hope to tackle in the very near future. Thus, bringing these two casts and settings together seems like a novel idea for a great Who story a la ‘Fires of Pompeii’ (or ‘Fires of Vulcan’ from Big Finish’s main line) as well as a nice introduction in getting listeners excited to check out the other set.
